Hello travelers, you’ll be glad to know you can find good beer in Buenos Aires:
These guys started home brewing, and just couldn’t help themselves. Now they have a network of pubs. We visited the one in the Palermo neighborhood of Buenos Aires:
Hey, guess what? These guys do a great job! The pub is airy, comfy and friendly. The food we had was toothsome, and the beers well crafted and dialed into their individual styles. The people who put this place together spent the effort and have the love to make all the pieces work. First class, all the way!
Iñaki samples a few…
Some tasting notes for you. Something for everyone here.
- Nice “lite” beer – good summertime drink perhaps a bit grassy-vegital.
- Playa Grande
- Happy wheat beer! Cloudy, and a little bitter.
- Clean, mildly malty. Quite tasty.
- Honey Beer
- Clean and a little sweet – 7.5%. Strong.
- Clean, a slight bitter bite – fortunately not as crazy bitter as many of our portland beers – better balanced I believe. Marc says he feels it is a bit sour. Iñaki says Argentinian IPA’s tend to be a bit sour.
- Not as strong as many scotch ales – but good flavor and nice light malty after taste.
- Barley Wine
- You bet, this is a barely wine. Marc says it has a creamy mouth feel, slightly bitter finish.
- Nice choco-malt finish, caramel flavor. Somewhat lighter body than other porters.
- Cream Stout
- “Wow, it’s like coffee” says Marc. Low carbonation N2O, very similiar to Guiness in flavor and mouthfeel.
- Imperial Stout
- Dark heavy malts, you could take a bath in them!
