In Argentina, even the beer can be political

A shrine for Eva Peron is lit with candles at the Peron Peron Bar in Buenos Aires, Argentina, Friday, April 12, 2013. Argentina is famous for its bare-knuckled politics, with iconic figures like General Juan Domingo Peron and his wife Evita, and a history of union battles and leftist guerrilla uprisings. Now beer-makers in Buenos Aires are capitalizing on this culture, brewing and selling artisan brands that celebrate the country’s political icons. The “Peron Peron” bar started the trend when it released its blonde beer, Evita. (AP Photo/Victor R. Caivano)
