| Barena, introduced in 2004, is a product of the Honduran Brewery of San Pedro Sula, a brewing company that traces its history back to 1898. In 2001, the company became a subsidiary of SABMiller. |
With a focus on light and mild sweetness, with very low hop bitterness, Barena, at 4.5% alcohol and 138 calories, certainly fits the tropical region. Sold in large and smaller bottles, as well as in cans, Barena can be found in certain American shops, generally those catering to Central American populations, especially of the Honduran immigrant group.
The company describes Barena this way- "Barena has a moderate alcohol content, sensitive body and a refined and characteristic type of bitterness in which no ingredient dominates the others. The malt sweetness, hop bitterness, flavour and aroma are very light, while fruity esters are low."
I have tried the beer and suggest a sampling. Barena should pair well with beef and bean dishes. Also, mild cheeses should be a nice compliment.
