El Bolson March 21, 2007

Posted by Jason in Argentina, culture, Patagonia, South America.

Arrival back into civilisation could not be much better.  The “hippie” town of El Bolson has welcomed us with open arms.

El Bolson

The food is excellent, the climate has been kind (warm sunny days!), a welcome change from the chilly days of Southern Patagonia, and the beer is awesome!

We have spent the day wondering aimlessly around the local market that happens 3 days a week here.  The locals sell there local goods clothing, crafts,  homemade food and local Artesanal Beer.

Purely in the interests of finding out about the local culture we have been eating the local produce of Empanadas(Argentinian pie), Quiches, Fruit puddings and Alfajores (the most amazing biscuit with Dulce De Leche). All amazing, washed down with a couple of Artesanal beers!

El Bolson is a Mecca of locally brewed beers.  3 different types are available.  Rubia (like a strong Lager), Roja (like a continental beer or British or Pale Ale) and Negra (like a stout).  All are excellent.

So far here we have tried 7Lagos beer, Piltri Cerveza Casera, Aracuana, Cerveceria El Bolson and Ilegales beers.  Just superb!

This is a laid back town that has great food and great beer.  We had a wonderful meal at “Martin Sheffield” restaurant with excellent service and again locally brewed beers on draught.  We can recommend the Trucha Pie (trout pie) which was amazing.  You eat it between 2 and is enormous! Its so tasty with trout, salmon, sweet potatoes and Aubergene and more, each mouthful is different.

With all this good food and beer will we ever get back to the mountains?  I think it is Chezza´s plan to keep us here!  But scenery here nestled between mountains near the Chilean border is fantastic.  We will have to drag ourselves away at some point!
