Brewed to 4.9% Quilmes is a classic lager that reflects its brewing heritage: golden colour, rich texture, refreshing light hoppy taste with a crisp, dry thirst quenching finish.
The Quilmes brewery was founded in 1890 in Buenos Aires by German immigrant Otto Bemberg. Quilmes quickly dominated the beer market in Argentina with outlets in all major cities. Having acquired several more breweries Quilmes was at the forefront of the brewing industry: they made the first malt from Argentine barley in 1921 and this enterprise supplied not only the company's own breweries but practically the entire national beer industry. At the same time, and with the same objective of self reliance, the first bottle-cap factory in Argentina was established at Quilmes to replace cork stoppers. Associated companies owned by Bembergalso produced ice, carbonic gas, and soft drinks.
