Bringing together the world's of beer and science, Heineken has developed a new beer called H41 that is made from a wild fungus found in the remote Patagonian forests. The new beer is the first in the brand's Wild Lager series, which is a project that aims to combine the knowledge of one Argentinian scientist and the palate of one Heineken brewmaster.

Just as its name suggests, H41 is a mysterious new brew that is the result of a unique scientific discovery. More specifically, H41 refers to the longitudinal coordinates for the spot where one of the beer's key ingredients was uncovered. This ingredient is a wild fungus called 'llao llao,' with a sweet and smoky flavor that is indicative of Patagonian cuisine. As a result, the brew pairs best with classic Patagonian dishes such as spicy foods, chocolate, and barbecued meat.
