Although it’s been brewed since 2004, sales seem to have received a boost from the White House bid of US Senator Barack Obama, whose father was originally from Kenya.
According to the brewery’s website:
Senator Keg was launched by Kenya Breweries Limited with the support of the Government, in November 2004. It is specifically targeted at the low-income consumer who has given positive indications of a need for a hygienic, affordable and bona-fide beer.In short: subsidised, healthy beer for poor people. Perhaps the aspiring Illinois Senator could add a new plank to his platform?
