We visited the Viejo Munich brewery. We toured the facilities and tasted the authentic beer brewed in this site. A complete experience for the palate.

Barrels of craft beer
First the barley is malted by moisterizing the grain at a certain temperature. Before the aparition of germination, the grain is dried and the starch becomes soluble. At the same time, the grain undergoes a roasting process, which generates its characteristic aroma and color.
Once the malt is obtained, it is milled and then mixed with water. It is permanently stirred at the same time it is subject to certain temperatures. This proces is called kilning.
After this step, the mixture is filtered in order to obtain a liquid rich in sugar and starch, which is heated for two hours. Afterwards, the hop is added. This way, the wort is obtained.
Finally, the beer is filtered and later stored in casks or bottles. If in bottles, the beer must be pausterized in order to manage a natural conservation of up to 6 months. If the beer is stored in casks, it will maintain the yeast alive, thus making it possible to be enjoyed at any time.
“In order to make black or red beer, special malts must be selected. The final result of this delicate process is a non-pasteurized lager beer whose foam is produced by natural fermentation” said Diego Assadourian at the other end of the brewery, as he poured an authentic and real mug of beer, typically used for toasting at Viejo Munich.
The brewery has a production capacity of 500 liters per lot and it produces about 3,500 liters per month. The Viejo Munich brewery specializes in managing a quality product called “Extra”, as the original wort surpasses the 13.5% of alcohol.
After the brilliant explanation, we resolved to taste the handcrafted beer, which we accompanied with a board of German cold meat, liver pâté, gherkins, cheese, olives and pickles. A good way to call it a day.
In Villa General Belgrano, talking about Viejo Munich is a synonym for good beer.
