Polar

The national beer of Venezuela. A six pack was left in my fridge while I was out of town last week. It’s a very typical South American lager. A crisp taste; especially when ice cold, and a light body. You can drink them quick, and you want to drink them quickly, because as they warm up they become less and less appealing. This beer is great symbol for the current state of my life. It’s like a fairy that came in through my back door, knocked up my daughter, and stole my TV. Still I give it 5 out of 10 (still need a wacky rating system). It was fun to drink them with a friend last night, playing Baseball on playstation and shooting the shit. Unfortunately its also the last thing my exgirlfriend left in my house.... uggghhhhhh
Getting away from my personal strife, and back to what really matters, Polar has several different varieties. The best imho was Polar Ice. It is generally served in 10oz. bottles, which is perfect when you’re in a country that borders the equator. There are some other beers in Venezuela; all are similar to Polar, which by the way is one the biggest exports for Venezuela, aside from oil of course. When I was there, I tried every beer that I could find. There version of light beer, is absolutely terrible. Strange to have a light beer, when your beer is already a light beer, but thats how marketing works.

I find this wonderful blog about such a wonderful thing, but then am shocked by a person's ignorance of the holy liquid which is beer. Shocked and appalled. And appalled.

Wow
I have no idea how many kinds of beer there are. They make beer pretty much every where in the world. I would love to try them all...
