So what are shebeen queens?

Soweto residents did it anyway, brewing their own and hiding it under beds or in the ground when the police checked in for raids. The local watering holes were called shebeens and the women who ran them shebeen queens.

The shebeens get creative

Back when ingredients for beer were expensive, the queens would skimp and make alcohol by soaking bread in battery acid. Now, beer making and selling is legal and ingredients are much cheaper so the days of using battery acid are long gone.

  1. I’m curious to know how the beer tastes… before and after the use of battery acid. Then again, the whole battery acid idea sounds kind of bad 🙂
