Latitud Cero Helles Export Lager - 2-5-17 - Ecuador
The Low Down:  Latitude Zero; Middle of the world; I bet it gets hot there. This makes the production of exceptional lagers an effort in engineering and refrigeration. This brew comes courtesy of a project manager at my work, who recently took the trip to E...

Khar Khorum Munich Dunkel - 17-8-2016 - Mongolia
The Low Down:  First let me say the Blue Sky Tower with a Filipino cover band playing all the tracks that you love is a great place to experience the commercial beer of Mongolia. Model included for the glory of Chinggis Khan. We later visited the Chinggis K...

Maxima Optima Linya "beer" - 15-8-2016 - Belarus
The Low Down:  The screen cap above should go a fair way towards describing the difficulty I had finding this stuff. It's a screen cap from Google translate, in a supermarket in Vilnius, Lithuania, where I scanned every product for country of origin until I...

The low down:  So I thought it would be a chore to find this one, but off the plane, down to the beach for lunch and the cafe had them ready to serve. We missed out on visiting the fort because the wind was too high, but the beer was a partial substitute. I...

Kotayk Lager - Armenia - 4-7-15
The low down:  Armenia has been around in one form or another for a long time, near enough to 3 millennia. Their written history of brewing merely clocks in at 2 and a half. In the 5th century BC Xenophon (no not Nick the Australian politician) wrote: "Ther...

St Louis Lager - Botswana - 15-4-15
The low down: I didn't even know where Botswana was when I started this beer, I mean I assumed Africa, probably near the bottom, but I didn't have a concept of the country in my mind. Turns out it's a land locked nation just north of South Africa, and famou...
