Pierhead Purchasing is hoping to titillate consumer taste buds with mango, pineapple and strawberry-flavoured beers.

The six-strong Robson's Range from South Africa, which also includes a Durban pale ale, an East Coast ale and a wheat beer, is made by the KwaZulu-natal based Shongweni micro-brewery using European brewing methods and local ingredients.

"The beers offer retailers an opportunity to excite shoppers and gain a point of difference," said Pierhead's director of imported beers Michael Cook.
