According to Castle Lager, to fortify the bonds of belonging and true friendship, Castle has come up with an ingenuity that will celebrate friendship amongst its consumers in the Southern African region.
And organisers addd: “The Best Brew League, will feature regular people from countries across the SADC region and winners in the respective countries will be rewarded with an opportunity to come to South Africa during the Cosafa Castle Cup to compete for the grand prize of being crowned BBL champions. The launch is set to kick-start a series of regional events culminating in the finals to take place at the Royal Bafokeng Sports Palace in Rustenburg and the Moruleng Stadium.

“When I was approached to be a part of this I jumped at the opportunity as this platform grants us an opportunity to make new friends with Castle Lager consumers from all over Africa. “I am looking forward to sharing my expertise with the players that will be joining us in Rustenburg during the Best Brew League and make long lasting relationships,” added Baloyi.
