I love trying drinks and my experience in El Salvador was no different. While countries produce a few of the own rums and whiskeys, the beers of El Salvador are yummy and refreshing.
Through the past few days both my driver and guide invited me to test several of the country’s famous beers (not that they needed to pull my leg to do it.)
So here are the fab 4 plus one limited edition.
This is thought to be El Salvador’s national beer because everybody drinks it, therefore it’s thought of as among the most popular beers of El Salvador Think of Budweiser in the States, Pilsener Urquell in Czech, Gallo in Guatemala and Balbao in Panama. You can find it’s fantastic for a day at the beach or simply hanging out with buddies and this beer everywhere you seem. I like this beer’s charm and lightness, however, especially the affordability factor. Pilsener generally costs $1 in shops and $1.50-$2.50 in pubs. El Salvador’s unofficial national beer must try After you come.
This is called the king of beers. It costs than Pilsener and is served. Drinking Suprema is a luxury for many working class El Salvadorians, so a prestige is unquestionably . Because I have learned from my buddies here- women dig guys who drink Suprema.
Similar in flavor Golden Light is the women’ beer. It is light and reduces the risk of hangovers. The most manly of men would not dare to order a Golden Light in a public place, but I liked this beer . Pilsener is my own favorite.
Good beer that most people today believe to be about the lower-end. Regia is tastier than Pilsener, but it’s hard to find in many restaurants. Regia is promoted in the working class, which does not actually mingle in restaurants and bars. It comes in 40 ounce. Glass bottles and also in cans. Regia one tried in Santa Tecla. Our waiter had to leave and find it at another pub. 20 minutes later he returned along with my request. The 40 ounce cost me around $3.50. In shops it costs about $1.30.
*LIMITED EDITION: this can be a limited edition beer generated round Christmas time. It’s essentially a Suprema spin-off that has a cherry flavor, more sweet and with a higher alcohol content. It’s only sold in shops from December to March. It costs about $1.40 in supermarkets, which is the only place they are sold.
Here’s a tasting I did at my buddies home on Lake Coatepeque.
