DescriptionBrewing (and distilling) constitute a major economic sub-system throughout rural and peri-urban sub-Saharan Africa, perhaps holding the prime function in the circulation of money. Brewing is important in resource decisions, in sales and consumption of grains, and as a significant consumer of fuelwood. It remains primarily a female function and skill; yet this unique sector, with its gender issues, is barely acknowledged by development agencies in their projects or in the extensive literature on gender and rural development. This article is hosted by our co-publisher Taylor & Francis.
