Uh-uh!

Umqombothi is a home brewed South African beer which was traditionally made by African women to make a living. Zutu women would make this beverage, try it and give it to the man who would say Aha! if he liked it or Uh-uh if not. This beer was sold in shebeens which were illicit bars during apartheid because blacks weren’t allowed to own businesses.
