Quilmes – Argentina’s favourite beer



Or is it? The kind of claim Foster’s would try and get away with in the 80s when advertising in the USA. I bet if you ordered one at a bar in Buenos Aires the staff would snigger at the gringo who just ordered the cat’s piss.

Not a bad drop but innocuous. Neutral is a good description. If it actually is the best beer in Argentina the others must be execrable (Wikipedia reckons they have 75% of the Argentine beer market so this is a possibility). I have also included a clear photo of the bottle. Apologies for the blur to the left

Interestingly the brewer, Cervecería y maltería Quilmes, is another owned by Anheuser-Busch InBev.

This is better
