When South Africans woke today they did not think that they were going to be shocked by such tragic news.
South African Breweries (SAB) was forced to pour 25 000 litres of beer down the drain. That's almost 67 000 bottles of beer.
Briefly.co.za learned that due to the lockdown and ban on alcohol sales, SAB has been forced to dump some of its beer, but it gets worse. A further 130 000 000 litres are at risk if the alcohol ban continues. Beer has a shelf life, unlike most wines and spirits.
Vumani Mkhize took to Twitter to let us know. South Africans were not too pleased and let the world know too.
