Go global!

By JOSH SMITH  |  September 7, 2010

As you might expect, African and South American beers are severely underrepresented in the international aisle. The surprisingly good TUSKER PREMIUM LAGER of Kenya is the only African beer that I have been able to find. South Africa, in particular, has some excellent beers to offer the world, such as the sweet and roasty CASTLE MILK STOUT. Someday soon, perhaps!

Similarly, the underwhelming BRAHMA out of Brazil is the only South American beer that I’ve been able to track down. This is a shame since other countries like Argentina are supposed to have solid craft brewing traditions. So whether you are traveling abroad or just down the international aisle of your favorite beer store, take a chance and bring a worldly new beer home with you.
