Free Beer in Cuenca


Well, maybe not free beer in Cuenca but inexpensive. I’ve become a huge fan of 22 oz. Pilsener Beer since I hit the ground here. It’s by far the most popular beer in Ecuador.

I buy it around the corner from me at a hole in the wall Ecuadorian restaurant. I pay $1.25 per 22 oz. bottle, usually two bottles at a time that I take home and I swap two empties in return (they get $.05 per empty back from the supplier, deposit).

Eventually I want to buy two cases at a time directly off the Pilsener Truck at 12 bottles per case with 24 empties in return. My price point would then be 75 cents per bottle.
