Say Quilmes in Argentina, then you mean "beer." The name has been synonymous to the beverage, and this could be traced way back to 1888 when the Quilmes brewery was founded. It has since then contributed to the development of what is known as the Quilmes zone in Buenos Aires.<br /><br />Quilmes, an ancient Indian name, was actually first brewed in 1890. It started as a family business with strict focus on quality, distribution and communication with clients and customers.<br /><br />Quilmes is the proud sponsor of soccer, a great Argentinian passion. With Quilmes as its leading domestic beer, Argentina started exporting its favorite beer in the US and European markets in 1998.
