On this day in 1970, Fiji gains independence from Britain. Did you know that there is a craft beer scene in Fiji? Coca Cola Amatil’s “Paradise Beverages” business is backing Fiji’s Vonu Pure Lager. They are hoping that the lager will sell well in Fiji, as well as Australia and New Zealand. Fiji has long been on my list of places to visit and I hope to drink some craft beer when I get there!
