The article below is written by one of Gonder diaspora before the new development. Here is what it says...
Gondar Diaspora, it ain’t a sleeping giant no more.
By Aklilu Abreha
On a personal note, I have to say the Manager is a highly dedicated individual. He is neither a Gonderie nor a Tigrai. He is a proud Ethiopian. He himself researched and selected the Brewery site to be in Gondar. He himself travels to remote places to select, verify, and buy quality sand for making concrete which is used to hoist the humongous fermenting barrels. One of the only two master brewers in Ethiopia, he could have made a better living somewhere else like the capital city of Ethiopia, but he chose to contribute to the development of our region. We have to show him and his co-workers our appreciation. Here is mine: Thank you very much Dashen Brewery for all your hard work to make Gondar a better place.
