Dolo refers to the popular locally or home-brewed millet beer in Burkina Faso. In Burkina Faso, Dolo is always prepared by a woman, called the Dolotière, who runs a bar called a cabaret. Dolo is served in a calabash after having been cooked for over three (3) days in huge jars. Its preparation is an important income for rural women and the millet beer varies in strength and taste according to region. There are two national brands of beer in the country called Sobbra and Brakina, however, for the majority of people in the country bottled beer is very expensive, hence they drink the Dolo.
