A local subsidiary of brewing giant SABMiller said on Thursday a $6.1-million project to replace an ageing bottling line has shut down beer production, but not that of soft drinks or traditional brews. 

Sharon Maziya of Swaziland Beverages sought to allay panic, saying the shortage would last approximately two weeks.

"We are almost done and should be up and running shortly."

The company makes several beers locally, including lagers, a milk stout and a pilsner. – AFP
