La Cervecería, El Chaltén
Tel: 54 2962 493109
Concierge.com's insider take:
One of the founders of La Cervecería hailed from Prague, where his family's 400-year-old brewery survived Nazi occupation only to be expropriated by the postwar Czech government. The family fled to Persia, a move they regretted in 1979 when Ayatollah Khomeini's revolutionaries brought Iran's brewing industry to an abrupt halt. Longing for peace and quiet, they landed in Patagonia, setting up shop in a tiny wood-frame shack in El Chaltén, where they brew top-quality bock and Pilsner behind the bar, serving it still frothing to today's generation of ruddy-cheeked hikers and climbers. There's a simple menu of home-prepared food, featuring Argentine staples such as rich locro stew, piquant empanadas, lasagna, and pizza.
Open daily 12:15 pm to 12:15 am.
