First beer made by Kingdom Breweries

KINGDOM Breweries Ltd produced its first test batches of beer in Phnom Penh last week and plans to enjoy the results in four weeks’ time. CEO Peter Brongers said Sunday that three batches of pilsner will undergo taste-testing early next month. One batch is slated to provide the final recipe for its first Cambodian beer. “It’s simply a matter of tweaking the ingredients until we get it right,” Kingdom’s German brewmaster Peter Haupenthal said. KBL will eventually brew at least two more products, including a dark lager. The US$4 million brewery is 55.5 percent owned by Leopard Capital.
