With the tastes of the Dutch and English layered upon a rich cultural heritage of the Zulu and Xhosa, South Africa has been canning beer longer than almost any other african country and certainly has canned more beer than any other african country.  Dominated by South African Breweries for decades, the rich variety of cans is fun to collect.

in Silverton, Pretoria and while it was carefully brewed to be cheaper, it didn't seem to last long.

friend to the left. It is numbered "MB4 19707/211"

the signature dates it to February of 1970. The can has "MB4 19707/204".

is on this Whitbread Gold Crest Lager numbered "MB 19707/208"
