Wild Dog: Zambia's Craft Brewery

Velten Tiemann was born in Zambia but spent most of his career working in the wine industry in Germany and Australia.

On returning to Zambia and realising he wanted to ferment something, Velten and his wife started Wild Dog. The decision was driven by the fast turnover, no waiting a year between projects.

Since brewing that first 100-litre batch Wild Dog has grown and won many awards.
