EMPOWERED TO ENJOY RESPONSIBLY
When enjoyed in moderation, alcohol can be part of a healthy lifestyle. Many of life’s special moments come from socialising over your favourite drinks. Unfortunately, as with many things meant for enjoyment, it’s easy to overdo.
At Namibia Breweries we are dedicated to reducing harmful drinking and promoting an understanding of responsible drinking. That’s why we launched EduDrink to provide you with facts about alcohol and its consumption. We believe it starts with you, and it Takes a Nation to make a positive change.
EduDrink consists of a six-part video series to help you make informed and responsible drinking choices. Watch the short videos and test your knowledge with a quick quiz. You’ll be amazed at how much you will learn.
Complete the quiz and then make a pledge to become an ambassador for responsible drinking.

Module 3: Effects of alcohol

Module 4: Underage drinking
Growing up is tough. Many teenagers simply want to feel like they belong, so if their friends drink, they follow suit. Teenage drinking is a serious societal problem with severe consequences. This video explains why underage drinking is never OK.
