| Presidente (President) is a 5% adjunct lager and a product of (mainly) the Dominican Republic. |
Cervecería Nacional Dominicana was founded in 1929 in the Dominican Republic by American investors and named in honor of the dictatorial president, Trujillo. A popular beer, it was reformulated in the 1960s, transitioning from a dark lager into the present, golden lager, in order to appeal to a wider audience. Presidente is the most popular beer brand in the Antilles, Central America, and its home country. It is sold in a large number of American states, east of the Mississippi River. One will find it on draft, in 12-oz. and 24-oz. green bottles and in cans.
After being acquired by Anheuser-Busch/InBev in 2012, it's availability and advertising outreach was greatly expanded. Interestingly, the local company, Cervecería Nacional Dominicana, also distributes Miller brands in the Dominican Republic.
Presidente Light was introduced in 2007.
Presidente is described by the company as follows- "Presidente Beer brings you the true essence of the Caribbean! Nothing else can compare to its refreshing, smooth and lively taste. That’s why every sip becomes a celebration!" This writer can attest to its smooth, mellow flavor and its high drinkability. A sampling is recommended.
