Overview

The unique and famous Sorghum Beer Brewing Experience gives you hands-on skills in the process of brewing traditional sorghum beer. Sorghum is a cereal crop first domesticated in the Niger Valley as early as 7000 BC. Since then the crop has spread across all continents.

During this experience, you will join a group of women to brew traditional sorghum beer. The experience includes all the steps of the process including seed cultivation, sowing, harvesting, and tasting. You will also learn how the harvested sorghum is dried, sorted, and fermented. You will grind the fermented seeds using a traditional stone to make sorghum flour. The sorghum flour will be used to brew Rwanda’s traditional sorghum beer.

At the end of the experience, everyone will enjoy the finished sorghum beer known locally as ikigage. This drink is enjoyed in the traditional way from a calabash using a wooden straw.

An English-speaking guide will accompany you during the entire experience.
