Impeke refers to a popular Burundii, a country located in East Africa, home-brewed beer made from sorghum.

In Burundi, when close friends or family members meet, they often drink impeke through straws, from a single large container, as a symbol of unity.

It is typically brewed in small batches by individuals or families. Here are some examples of how impeke is consumed in Burundi:

  1. Shared drinking: When close friends or family members meet in Burundi, it is common to drink impeke through straws from a single large container, as a symbol of unity and communal bonding.

  2. Social events: Impeke is often consumed at social events, such as weddings, funerals, or religious celebrations.

  3. Everyday drinking: Impeke is also consumed on a daily basis in many households in Burundi, often as a replacement for commercial beer.

  4. Pairing with food: Impeke is often paired with local dishes such as "isombe" (cassava leaves), "matoke" (cooked plantains), or grilled meat.

Impeke has a slightly sour and tangy taste and a low alcohol content. It is a traditional drink in Burundi and is an important part of the country's cultural heritage. In recent years, some commercial breweries have started producing their own versions of impeke, but home-brewed versions are still the most common.
