I enjoy trying beverages in each country I see and my experience in El Salvador has been no different. While countries produce a few of their very own rums and whiskeys, the beers of El Salvador are tasty and refreshing.
During the previous few days both my guide and driver encouraged me to test several of the country’s famous beers (not that they needed to yank on my leg to do it.)
So here are the fab 4 plus one limited edition.
This is considered to be El Salvador’s domestic beer because everybody drinks it, so it is thought of as one of the most well-known beers of El Salvador Think of Budweiser from the States, Pilsener Urquell at Czech, Gallo in Guatemala and also Balbao at Panama. You can literally find it’s fantastic for a day at the beach or just hanging out with buddies and this beer anywhere you look. I really like the smoothness and lightness, however, notably the affordability factor of this beer. Pilsener generally costs $1 at stores and $1.50-$2.50 at pubs. After you come you have to try El Salvador’s unofficial national beer.
This is called the king of beers. It costs about 25 percent more than Pilsener and is also served everywhere. Drinking Suprema is a luxury for many class El Salvadorians, so a prestige is definitely . As I have heard from my buddies here- girls dig.
Similar in flavor to a Miller Light, Golden Light is the girls’ beer. It is light and lessens the danger of hangovers. I really enjoyed this beer very much, although the most manly of men wouldn’t dare to purchase a Golden Light at a public place better. Still, Pilsener is my favorite.
Good beer that most folks believe to be about the lower-end. Regia is tastier than Pilsener, however it’s hard to find in most restaurants. Regia is promoted in the working class, which doesn’t really mingle in pubs and restaurants. It comes in 40 ounce. Glass bottles and also in cans. I tried Regia one evening at Santa Tecla. Find and our waiter really had to leave it in another pub. 20 minutes later he returned along with my petition. The 40 ounce cost me about $3.50. In stores it costs about $1.30.
*LIMITED EDITION: this is a limited edition beer produced around Christmas time. It is essentially a Suprema spin-off that has a flavor. It is only sold to March. It costs about $1.40 in supermarkets, which is the only place they are sold.
Here’s a tasting I did on Lake Coatepeque in my buddies home.
