Guinness Ghana Breweries Ltd (GGBL), Ghana’s only total beverage business, has launched a new home-grown beer called Ruut Extra Premium Beer.
Being Ghana’s first cassava beer, Ruut Extra Premium Beer is brewed from the “very best local raw materials” sourced from around the country and is an authentic beer with a pleasant aroma and a distinctive refreshing taste.
It is the first of its kind ever to be produced in Ghana and it will begin a national rollout this December, first be seen in the Western, Central and Volta regions.
“Ruut Extra Beer is a well-balanced, premium beer that will offer Ghanaians the real taste of good quality refreshing beer at a reasonable retail price of GHs 1.60p”, a statement released Tuesday read.
The statement added that: “Guinness Ghana Breweries Limited, over the years has been working tirelessly behind the scenes to find the perfect recipe to produce a beer worthy of its Ghanaian roots. Available in a stylish 625ml bottle with a distinctive gold metallic label and has an ABV of 6%, Ruut Extra Premium Beer has been developed specifically to satisfy Ghanaian men looking for a premium local beer.”
The company believes that by producing this beer, it is demonstrating its commitment to local agriculture and providing a positive impact on the local economy and farmers, particularly in the more deprived areas of the country.
“Guinness Ghana Breweries has been investing in local raw material sourcing for more than a decade; working in partnership with local suppliers and farmers, the Ministry of Food and Agriculture, NGOs and researchers to help develop sustainable local raw material supplies, through improvement in productivity of farmers.”
Peter Ndegwa, Managing Director of GGBL said, ‘we are passionate about enriching the communities in which we operate and through our local raw material sourcing initiatives, we aim to improve the lives of Ghanaian farmers by supporting and investing in Agriculture; currently, we have impacted about 7000 farmers in the three Northern Regions in Ghana.

Agnes Essah, Marketing Director also commented: ‘We are delighted to introduce this truly Ghanaian beer to the marketplace.
