SABMiller - Should be easy to find, this is the same company that owns Miller.
I thought it was Castle Milk Stout? Never had it before, but I can see myself drinking plenty of that a few weeks from now.
Yeah, my South African buddy always smuggles a few cases back. He's leaving for South Africa this Friday.
Castle Brewery was founded in Johannesburg in 1894. It later merged with other breweries to form South African Breweries.
The main brand is Castle Lager, a 5% pale lager introduced in 1895. Castle Lager has won many awards, from gold medals to the "World's Best Bottled Lager" award at the 2000 International Brewing Industry Awards. It is advertised as "somewhat dry, somewhat bitter, never sweet" and as "the beer that stood the test of time". Other brands are Castle Lite and Castle Milk Stout.
