Cervecería Blest, Bariloche’s only microbrewery, is owned by the same people who run popular downtown pub, The Pilgrim.
The restaurant, located 11 kilometers out of town, provides a unique atmosphere with an old fashion delivery truck out front and antique decor including beer steins, kegs and license plates.
The walls are covered with coasters that have been autographed by guests —declarations of love, musings on life and hopes for the future, some of them quite amusing. A poster on the wall proclaims: “No Blest, No Glory.”
The Blest Beerhouse is a great place to eat outside in the summertime with a group of friends or family while surrounded by glorious mountains. Inside, the cozy wooden booths provide a warm place to pass a few hours.
The menu consists of pizzas, sandwiches, terrific meat and cheese platters and gaucho favorites like potpie, with entrees running between US$ 4-12.
Blest is the specialty on tap, but you may want to venture out to other brands — if you’re a beer connoisseur ask for a taster to help you decide.
Go early, it gets crowded at dinnertime and on nice afternoons.
