Nigeria’s leading brewer, Nigerian Breweries has unveiled its innovation, “Star Bottle Tree”.
The Star Bottle Tree, situated at Star Beer Village, Bar Beach Stretch Victoria Island Lagos, is made with 8,000 bottles and is the largest bottle tree in the world. Attention grabbing and stunningly made, it is a first of its kind in the country, symbolizing greatness and the enterprising Nigerian spirit personified by Star Lager, the country’s leading beer brand.
Lagosians took part in the record-breaking feat by submitting empty Star bottles, which were put together to build the tree.
The Star Bottle Tree aims to break the current World Record of 1,000 beer bottles being held by the Chinese city of Shanghai.
