Chile's Best Beer

Watching BBC News 24's coverage of the marvelous rescue of the trapped miners after two months of  empathetic claustrophobia terrors that have occasionally kept me awake at night, I am, like millions of others, feeling quite elated at watching the happy ending in progress.

As journalistic padding there's been some talk of what the men will be most looking forward to back on the surface: loved ones; hot baths; clean clothes; sunlight; fresh air; fresh food.

Beer wasn't mentioned but I'm sure it's in there somewhere.

A bit of browsing on Ratebeer revealed this brewery, Szot, by a head and shoulders margin, as Chile's best. That's what I would want – after family, I suppose.

I'm not sure I'd be too fussy after 70 days underground.

I actually said to my wife 'Tell you what, I'd be straight to the bar if that was me', it was only as the word 'me' left my mouth that I realised I had made a terrible mistake. I then tacked on a hasty ', after I've hugged you obviously...and you'd be at the bar too..' - but the damage was done.
