Miller to Increase Foreign Beers on Tap

Miller Brewing Co. stated yesterday that it will import more three South American brews and expand the distribution of its Polish beer Tyskie which is now sold in the Windy City with its large Polish community. Cristal and Cusquena are from Peru, and Aguila from Columbia. (However, the three SA beers will be targeted to the large SA populations in NY and FL.) So for now: you'll probably only see Pilsner Urquell (Czech Republic) and Peroni (Italy) at your local grocery unless it caters to a more cosmopolitan palate.

Does Tyskie rhyme with 'frisky' or is it 'tie-one-onsky'?
I imagine Cristal and Cusquena will definately put some Machu in your Piccu.
Aguila also makes ammo from Columbia...hmm.  Nitro-fermented, no doubt.
Seems like Peron should have been from Argentina somehow.

You're right: Evita is from Argentina. I forgot to add the "i" to Peron. Salud!
