THE owners of Gold View bar in Maseru believe their recent victory in the Braai Masters competition will boost patronage at the entertainment facility in the Khubetsoana area.
Gold View recently beat nine other outlets in the Maseru district in the competition sponsored by Maluti Mountain Brewery (MMB) to walk away with the top prize of 60 cases of Castle Lager beer at Maseru Club grounds.
Twisters Bar from Ha Matala came second and received 30 cases of Castle Lager while Salang Public Bar situated in Khubetsoana received 15 cases after finishing third.
Gold View representative, Matšeliso Lebitsa told the Weekender in an interview that “winning the competition will boost our clientele and everybody would want to braai meat at Gold View to taste and enjoy our secret ingredients”.
“We believe it was our secret spices and sauces which draw customers on daily basis which enabled us to win the competition.
“Those were the only things which were different from those of our competitors since everything else was supplied by MMB,” Lebitsa said.
She said they would use the prize to “promote the bar and butchery starting from tomorrow,” adding, “We cannot reveal how we are going to giving out the beer, all we can say is people should come through for surprises”.
The competition which was the first of its kind by MMB is set to become an annual event and will be rotated among the country’s ten districts.
It was held to promote the Castle Lager draught brand and patrons were given the opportunity to taste eat meat from four braai stations of their choice and vote for the best.
The patrons also received two free 500ml glasses of Castle Lager draught and thereafter could refill for M15. Each refill guaranteed automatic entry into various soccer competitions whose prizes included camping chairs, a braai utensils and sauces among other things.
The event was also spiced up by performances from local acts such as Jiji F, Juvy, T Mech, Skebz D, Drigger and DJ Lady Dee among others.
