First let me state that I am not a beer connoisseur, nor do I pretend to be. However, I love beer, and when I heard about Buena Birra Social Club I knew I wanted to check it out. Owned and operated by brother and sister Maria Eugenia and Ariel, Buena Birra Social Club — a puerta cerrada, or a closed-door, reservation-only establishment — attempts to rectify the lack of fine microbeweries in Buenos Aires. Ariel concocts all the beers himself in a small room in his backyard and runs Buena Birra Social Club (do you think I’ve plugged the name enough?) from his own home — he lives upstairs. The Travel Chica does a much better job than I could at explaining the experience so I’m just going to let her get on with it and show you my pictures from the evening.
Wait! I have a startling factoid: Did you know that beer in Argentina contains only 3.5% of alcohol? Mind. Blown.
