Locate Desperados beer

by Katie
(Chicago, IL, USA)

Hello UNOB!

Please, please help me locate Desperados beer in the USA!

Seriously, it's harder to find than Waldo!

I live in Chicago, IL and cannot find anywhere that has it. I really want to give it as a Christmas present.

I would appreciate any help you could give! Thanks in advance, and happy holidays.

Katie

It might be illegal
by: Anonymous

Hi,
I was just reading an article about Desperados and it states that its illegal to sell it here in the states because of the mix of beer and spirits. I still looking just in case.

Nobody cares....
by: Anonymous

It always makes me laugh at how self involved the fellow human can be.... Read through all these posts looking for tip on how to find Desperados... Instead the majority of people are talking about where they first tried it "I went to barcelona" "I drank it in the Louvre" "I went to Paris" nobody cares!! Do you honestly think people want to hear about when you tried the beer????... Why people feel the need to talk about themselves so much I will never know. Simply put, if you know where to buy Desperados in USA. Post it. If you don't, well go on your facebook page where I'm sure you can get your fill of self indulgence and talk about yourself all day.

I'd love to get it in the USA, but I make my own
by: PENTIGER

I already gave out the recipe but I modified it since then.

Take a tall glass, pour 2oz of gold tequila, fill the glass half with Heineken beer and fill to top with Sierra Mist soda. (not sprite or 7up) it has to be sierra mist because it's sweeter.

It's really a great alternative. I always make it for my friends and they love it.

Try it.

--------------------------------------------------------

Petinger,

For this mix, when adding the soda on top of it all, do you mix it in a mixer or serve it as is???

No shipment to the US
by: Anonymous

I haev just tried to place an order to

and they do not ship to the US. Is there another site that will ship to the US?

Shipping's the downfall
by: Lauren

You can buy Desperados at TheDrinkShop.com and have it shipped to the U.S. but it IS quite costly. One bottle costs 1.29 british pounds and shipping to the U.S. costs about 30 pounds sooo I guess if it's a sacrifice I can make at some point, I will. I miss my Desperados!

Jan 11, 2012

So do any websites or stores in the us ship it or any other countries that can ship to the USA?????

Desperados...world's best!
by: Kent

Just took a Caribbean cruise and found Desperados in a little grocery store in Marigot, St. Martin. I may never like another beer! The taste was remarkable! It would be worth a trip to France! I'm broken-hearted that it doesn't seem to be available in the U.S.!

Best beer ever!

Heineken in the US
by: Anonymous

Hi guys!

Desperados is actually a french beer, now owned by Heineken and already distributed in most european countries.

They are always on the move to new markets, so widespread availability (beyond selected partners who import it on their own) in the US will certainly come, especially as this year Heineken makes a big effort to promote the brand!

Forget the beer.
by: PENTIGER

I missed the taste of this beer since I was on vacation in Europe in 2009. In the meantime I had to substitute it with a drink (recipe in comments below, yes with tequila). The drink is so tasty, everyone has to try it.
This year went again to Europe and the first thing I got was Desperado and I cannot express my disappointment. The taste was flat and the drink is sweeter and stronger thanks to tequila.

I will no longer feel the urge for the desperado as this drink tastes way better. Try it.

Since 2003
by: Chief

I had my first "Despe" in France in 2002 and it was pretty much the only beer that I loved. I've been searching for it since I returned to the US (Chicago) in 2003. Now that I live in LA, I'm still trying to find it but there's nothing remotely close.

St. Ives the Tap Room, England
by: Adventurer

If you live in the UK you can surely find Desperado beer being served in St. Ives at the Tap Room. It was recommended by the bartender and I really was impressed. They have great food and beer there as well. Good luck!

So funny that others love it as I do...
by: Anonymous

I had desperados in Paris and could not believe how wonderful it was. A few days later, on our anniversary, I had to have it again. I had the biggest smile on my face whenever I took a gulp. I was so surprised to see how many others love it the way I do.

Desperados
by: Lily

Yes, me too, this is great beer. I have had it in Rota, Spain and in Landstuhl, Germany. My husband who travels brings it back occassionally, but even the grocery stores in that area do not sell for retail sale.

It comes from a brewery in France ( I typically don't say that too loud)

Where can you get it in USA???

Desperate for Desperados.....

I too had Desperados in Barcelona and LOVED IT! I was with a friend who doesn't like beer ordinarily, and she loved it as well. Doesn't look like we can get it in the U.S. I'm going to try the recipe from the e-mail above though. Thanks!!

desperados or salitos
by: Margaret

I'm desperate for desperados, too! I had it in Paris with some new French friends, and then in Barcelona. There also is a beer called Salitos that is, to me, almost the same! I found that in Barcelona and Madrid as well...but my search for either of the two was of no avail in Chicago!!! :(

Great taste of sweet, hard to find, nectar.
by: BabyGirlsVet

I had my first taste of the sweet beautiful beer when I was in Germany, back in 2006. All I can say is after that night, I almost can't stand the taste of a lot of american beers like Bud. If anyone finds this wonderful golden refreshing beer in the states, please don't keep us in the dark. Please share the wealth. I can still taste the sweet nectar of Desperados.

Desperados
by: tom

Wish I could help. You know Anheuser Busch just stopped making Tequiza which was the same thing. Pissed me off and I let them have an earful over it. This Desperados stuff sounds pretty good. Maybe Inbev makes it and maybe they'll bring it here like Leffe and others that are now coming over.
