Presidente Cerveza is an icon of the Dominican Republic since its creation in 1935. It is the beer people think of when they think of this island in the Caribbean. It is always served cold, very cold (best served at -2° C) which is why it has the nick name "vestida de la novia" (dress of the bride) because of the coating of white frost covering the bottle. Enter any establishment and ask for a beer or a bien fria (cold beer) you will automatically be given a Presidente in the green bottle.

This Blonde, Pilsner type beer is made with water, malted barley, refined corn, sugar and hops and has 5% alcohol per volume. They always use top quality ingredients for this Dominican icon.
