Ditch your Radler for a refreshing Ghanaian fruit beer. Brewed in Holland and Belgium with raw ingredients imported from Ghana, the Berlin-owned Dju Dju contains 30 percent pure fruit juice (banana, passionfruit or our pick, mango).
Taking its name from the African pronunciation of ‘voodoo’, the golden ‘alcopop’ (3.6% alcohol) is crafted from a typical Ghanaian recipe but altered for Europe’s sugar-fiend palettes, making it the poison of choice for Afrophiles with a sweet tooth.
It’s been sold since 2005 at select Afroshops and Spätis, as well as African bars and restaurants like Kreuzberg’s Ethiopian mecca Langano (€3-4/330ml). If sucrose ain’t your thing, try the less fruity Dju Dju Palm ale or an Ethiopian Meta beer – more than just a delicious idea.
