After enlivening festivities and parties for several years, Julbrew has now become a missing link in many beer lovers’ quest for the excitement of the cockles of the heart.
The Gambia’s Very Own Beer has thrilled and excited beer lovers, including tourists but heavy tax burden has forced its manufacturers to look the other way.
The lager beer was a jolly good companion of many but for the past few Christmas and New Year festivities, it has not been around with them.
Freezing cold lager beer bottles are no longer showing up at party sessions.
Profoundly missed and fondly remembered by many of it’s heartbroken lovers, there’s currently no bright future for the return of the Gambia’s Very Own Beer.
The beer plant of Banjul Breweries closed down nearly four years ago. Investors closed down operations after they felt the tax was overburdening.
Meanwhile, it’s not only beer lovers, who have been mourning the demise of the Gambia’s Very Own Beer but hundreds of families as well.
The resultant downsizing of staff and the subsequent closure of the company have also led to hundreds of job loses.
