As consultants in Bavarian Beerhouse hospitality, our focus is naturally on beer from Germany, especially Bavaria. However, we are also two entrepreneurs who established Bavarian Beerhouse culture in London/UK. We have traveled the world and now advise international clients interested in opening up their own Bavarian Beerhouse or organizing German Beer Festivals.
And so, we naturally come into contact with a variety of beer from all over the world. That's why today, in our second part of this blog post series, we would like to introduce you to a few other beers you can find in other countries.
Of course, this is not a comprehensive list, but just a few examples from a few countries. Let's have a look!
Brazil is one of the most prolific beer producers worldwide, with beer being the most popular alcoholic drink! Many Brazilian beers tend to be on the lighter side, as far as the alcohol content is concerned. Pilsner (a pale lager) is a widely preferred choice. Some well-known brands are Antarctica, Brahma, Itaipava, Nova Schin, and Skol.
In South Africa, you can find the second-largest brewery globally: South African Breweries (SAB), with Castle Lager being one of the best-known products. Other brands are Amstel, Black Label, and Carlsberg.
In the United Kingdom, beer has a centuries-old tradition that goes back to the Romans and Celts. One of the most popular types is ale (or "real ale"), a top-fermented cask beer. Other beer types include Porter, Stout, and India Pale Ale (IPA). Are you curious about the characteristics of the different styles and which food to pair them with? Have a look at Taste Atlas' recommendations!
As already mentioned, our expertise lies in German beer and the beerhouse hospitality business. That's why we will devote an entire blog post to the subject of German beers and Bavarian beers in particular!
