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