My second beer attempt at Dawa Bar was another Ethiopian brew, Meta.
Meta Abo Brewery is located in the town of Sebata, 27 km from Addis Ababa. The brewery was established in 1963 by the Ethiopian Government and Ethiopian private nationals as a share company with a starting capital base of 2 million Birr. It is the only brewery which gets water from a big reserve of soft spring water (locally known as holy water of St. Abo). The spring water meets the international brew standard to be used without any treatment. The brewery produces bottled and draught beer.
It reminded me of a typical lager, maybe with a little more oomph. I definitely liked it better than many lagers I usually have but it didn’t blow me away. I’d definitely have this again though whenever I can find it. I honestly don’t have much to say about it though. Nice, refreshing, that’s about it.
Bottle is the one in the middle….
