Beer Goes Artsy


“Filled with mingled cream and amber I will drain that glass again. Such hilarious visions clamber Through the chambers of my brain -- Quaintest thoughts -- queerest fancies Come to life and fade away; Who cares how time advances? I am drinking ale today.”

Edgar Allan Poe (American short-story Writer, Editor, Poet and Critic, 1809-1849)


When I first arrived in Argentina there was very few artisan beer makers. This is the land of Quilmes and in most places you just ordered beer. Sometimes they would have Heineken or some other equivalent of an excuse for a beer.

Now there are many microbreweries and I think it´s fantastic.

One of those microbreweries that I like is Otro Mundo.

My favorite is the Nut Brown Ale; it is made with a blend of 70% Pilsen and 20% Munich malt with the remaining 10% coming from caramelized malt from Bamberg, Germany.

It is a dark, top fermented beer, its aroma is pure malt and toasted nut heaven, with a taste that includes hints of chocolate, nuts and butter.

They just came out with artwork on their labels. I really like the look of them. I think they are fantastic!

What do you think?

Oh, by the way, that beer goes great with our savory Parmesan cheese cookies.

Cuando llegue a la Argentina me acuerdo que una de las cosas que estrañaba era la cerveza artesanal. No habia muchas opciones.

Hoy en día sí las hay y estoy recontento.

Unas de mis favoritas viene de la empresa Otro Mundo. En particular me gusta la Nut Brown Ale.

La cerveza Nut Brown Ale de Otro Mundo cuenta con un blend de maltas compuesto por un 70% de malta tipo Pilsen, 20% de malta tipo Munich, ambas originadas a partir de cebada cultivada en el sur de la Provincia de Buenos Aires.

El 10% restante corresponde a maltas especiales caramelizadas y tostadas en la renombrada maltería Weyermann, de la zona de Bamberg, Alemania.

Se trata de una cerveza café oscuro, con tinte rojizo. El aroma inspira sensaciones de malta y nuez tostada y el sabor tiene notas de chocolate, nuez, y manteca. Con cuerpo mediano y suave, posee un final a malta.

Ahora tienen Art Series - "una muestra de arte exhibida en las etiquetas" y ademas un maridaje de esa cerveza con nuestros copetines es espectacular!
