One blogger’s personal bridge to nowhere

Peace = beer

The best thing to come out of the peace that ended Sudan’s long-running North-South civil war?  Beer.

Brewing was banned in Sudan 25 years ago under Islamic law.

Now, the international brewing group SABMiller says it will launch a new lager in Juba in the south of the country in February.

Cheers.  And if the worst does come to pass, and the North-South war reignites — anything but a remote possibility, unfortunately — the South should hope that the new brew doesn’t affect its troops as much as booze affects the Brits claim that booze affects German soldiers.
