Santo Domingo.- Executives of the South Korea brewery Hite Jinro on Tuesday announced their interest in investing in Dominican Republic’s market by exporting beer and creating jobs.

After a National Palace press conference, president Danilo Medina received the business leaders, who previously met with Economy minister, Temístocles Montas, who said it’s one of South Korea’s leading producers of alcoholic beverages in and for some time have partnered with Grupo Barceló to imported beer.

"In the coming weeks we’ll possibly have the opportunity to see Cerveza Barceló beer placed in shopping malls, and their idea is, in addition to imports, install a brewery in Dominican Republic," Montas said.

He said initiative also involves exporting beers of the highest quality from Dominican Republic to all the countries of the region.

Moreover, Hitejinro Brewery CEO Yang In Jip said the commercial relationship with Dominican businesses will be sustained in the long term and his desire is to expand their business operations with Dominican Republic. "The volume of our orders is growing and I want to contribute to create jobs in the economy."

Also present in the meeting were Hitejinro vice president You Bo-hyung, Latin America director Moon Byung Kyung, and Grupo Barceló CEO José Miguel Barceló, among others.

Dominican Republic is a regional powerhouse beer exporter, with famous brands such as Brahma, Presidente, Bohemia and Quisqueya, among others.

More beer, more jobs, more money for more beer. Beer is good in more ways than one. It's great for cleansing the renal system, good for the heart and intestines as it kills bad bacteria and tapeworms. It's easier on the liver and kidneys than rum and gives you a lesser hangover.;When pissed on threes and bushes, it makes them grow robustly.
One can never have enough beer. I'm thirsty.

Actually we dont easily adapt to lower quality, once we've had the best !!

PRESIDENTE !

Was a German formula of Pilsners for Trujillo, so it had to be the best !!


It does not taste half as good as it used to, yet it is still one of the best !!

More the choices the better. The local brands don't taste good to me and after one grande I get a headache and rot gut. I buy the imports.

There seems to be a rule here if the bar you go to does not sell what you want and as long as others with you buy from the bar it is ok to bring your own beer.

Rokete...obviously you are a rookie at beer. Pressi is hardly world class....not even close.

Brahma is a Brazilian beer

Quisqueya is absolute swill and only served to low budget tourists on open trucks.

Let them bring all the beers they want............Presidente is King!.

If they sell it/them cheaper than Presidente and doesn't taste batter, ADIOS Korean beers.

Remember how Brahma was supposed to dethrone Presidente?............not even close.

I like Heineken myself and I find the Heinekens in DR preferable over US Heinekens. Could be the alcohol content, but a Presidente from la Ceniza was a treat. Not world class ? I don't know about that. A Heineken or an ashy Presidente is just as good. For different tastes different colors.
