Another one of Bariloche’s excellent brewery pubs, Manush also boasts a delicious food menu. It serves around 13 different artisanal beers, including a Pilsner-style lager, an unusual chocolate milk stout, and a pale ale, which is their most popular. The inside is decked out in wood, as is so typical to the area, and has a good number of tables without being too large so as to lose the intimate atmosphere. All beer is, of course, brewed on site, and the food menu is also of excellent quality, offering dishes such as sharing platters designed to go perfectly with beer as well as classic pub meals. A sophisticated spot to try some of Bariloche’s best brews.
