Juju beer

The nine-day Green Week Festival in Berlin, Germany’s most important trade fair, ended on Sunday with a spectacular exhibition by a Ghanaian who had showed up at the fair with ‘juju’ beer, served in a calabash.

Almost everyone, including some delegates from the European Union and the German Ministry of Agriculture, who turned up at the fair, was carried away by the exhibition of the Ghanaian, whose ‘juju’ beer had no alcoholic content, and yet was powerful enough to resist the minus eight degree temperature.

The beer, made with palm kernels, passion fruit and banana flavouring, had been named ‘juju’ (cult) because of its high boozing content.

The Ghanaian Chronicle reports.
