| Famosa beer (Gallo in its home country) is a beer introduced in Guatemala in 1896. The flagship beer of Cervecería Centro Americana Sociedad Anónima, founded by the Córdova family in Guatemala City, it is found in some retail outlets in the USA (bottles and cans). Most shops where it is sold cater to Central American immigrant populations. |
At 5% alcohol, this mild and mellow American-style pale lager should appeal to many regular beer drinkers and should pair well with Meso-American dishes. It does receive major television and radio advertising attention in Guatemala, but only limited point-of-sale promotion in the United States of America.
I have sampled this beer, from both the can and bottle, and can attest to its smooth flavor. The drinker will find that Gallo (Famosa) is more alike than unlike other mass-produced American beers. A sampling is recommended.
