BRING YOUR BEER AND BRAAI THIS HERITAGE DAY

With 124 years of South African heritage, SAB has played an integral role in the social fabric of the country – and there’s not much more social than a braai on Heritage Day.

“Nothing beats celebrating Heritage Day like a true South African with boerewors on the braai, a lekker beer bread on the side and an ice-cold beer in your hand,” says Anton Erasmus, Trade Brewer at SAB.

Traditional braais are usually accompanied by a variety of meat, side dishes and a dessert. Types of meat could range from steaks, sausages, lamb chops to chicken and sosaties. For the traditional side dish, garlic bread is always a winner, but meilies, pap or roosterkoek will also be suffice. As for dessert, don’t forget the koeksisters or malva pudding to satisfy your sweet tooth.
