    Anything to check out in Tanzania? Also traveling to Malawi and Ethiopia, but spending the majority of our time in TZ.

    Yes I found ONE gem - Crafty Dee's in Dar es Salaam. They are the only craft brewery I could find. their tap room is at the Karambezi Cafe. 8 beers on tap, I had a few, all pretty good and more importantly RIDICULOUSLY good compared to the macro lagers otherwise available there.

    All I can say about Tanzanian beer, from my time working there in the Peace Corps in the late '90s as a secondary school math and science teacher in a village with no electricity, is that Safari Lager is the most drinkable choice when no refrigeration is available... I found Kilimanjaro Lager to be comparatively skunky when warm, though it went down well as a "bia baridi" (Swahili for cold beer). :slight_smile:
