Fotostory: A Field Trip

She said do you want to have a free tour of the Primus factory (national beer factory)…

Er Yes, Yes I do! So Mamma Mariette (our Congolese Mum) pulled her congolese strings and here we are …


Primus has been around in the Democratic republic of Congo since the Belgian colonial period. It survived the wars and years of corruption. The countries flag is printed on each label and it “is more than just a sought-after brand of brew — it’s a “source of national pride.” It is brewed in 4 countries in Central Africa. The Democratic Republic of the Congo, Republic of the Congo, Burundi and Rwanda. It was first brewed in 1926 according to Wikipedia.
