A man who tried to force others to drink his home brew got a taste of his own brew at Nasali Landing in Rewa.

When he was rejected, he tried to punch one of the men.

A brawl ensued and the home brew man ended up in Wainibokasi Hospital.

He and two others have been taken in by Police for questioning for the New Year brawl, Police sources say.

Ana Naisoro, the Police spokesperson, could not be reached last night to comment on this incident.

The injured man is understood to have suffered head injuries.

He was admitted at the hospital but allegedly discharged himself on Sunday night. But Police picked him up from his village later and took him to Nausori Police Station.

Nasali resident, Eminoni Lidi, 54, said the incident occurred on New Year’s Day.

“The man who was assaulted had made home brew which he thought to drink with the two brothers,” he said.

“He brought the home brew and forced the others to drink while he was eyeing his friend’s wife.

“It was said that the other friend didn’t like what he was doing and forcing them to drink so they chased him out of the house.

“But when he was chased out, he punched one of the two brothers and that’s when the fight started ending with one in hospital and the other two in the Police Station,” Mr Lidi said.

He said, “No one here drinks home brew.

“There are many great products out there and on affordable price, so people don’t drink home brew here anymore,” he said.

“People prefer to purchase their desired beer or other alcoholic drink from the market instead of making it at home.”

He said this type of incident used to happen back in the old days.

“Before, many years back we used to witness brawls and fights around here but now for years, this place has been quiet.

“It is a bit surprising to hear and see these things happen in our community which is raising concerns as it is creating a negative impact on our young children,” Mr Lidi said.
