Castle Lite

1994

Castle Lite Appeared in South Africa

Castle Lite as a brand and a beer appeared on the South African market in 1994, a bare year away from the brewery’s centenary. Fewer calories, a slightly lower alcohol percentage, those things seemed less important then than they do now – hence the ribbing early adopters saw themselves catching from their mates. Not that a bit of fun-poking could slow down Castle’s newest brand.

Launch of the ice core

To keep your beer as cold as possible. And given that we’re sitting here in 2016 and the company have just dropped an updated version of their thermal-resistant portable cooler – with a temperature sensor built into it – it seems to have been a success.Why the Smart Ice Core? Because getting a thermometer in a cooler, especially one like this, is basically unheard of right now.
