Local beer recommendations?

Are there any especially good Chilean beers? My tastes currently run to British Ales and German beers, preferring hoppy, bitter beers to sweet, malty beers, but I do not turn up my nose at an American lager. What might I find in Valparaiso, Puerto Montt, and Punta Arenas? Are there any special beer drinking establishments? Thanks in advance.

Hehe...gulping down a Brahma Extra Fuerte, I can confirm it is a strong (dry high alcohol content) lager type on the bitter side, Not microbrew quality but gets the job done...hehe...

Thanks again for your advice. Drinking mostly with meals, no place offered a wide selection of beers, but I was well satisfied with everything I tasted, a Kunstmann Torobayo in Viña del Mar, an Escudo lager and a Kross amber in Valparaiso, and a draft Brahma in Puerto Varas.

The seaside walk in Punta Arenas from our cruise ship to Plaza Muñoz Gamero Square was longer than expected. I found no appealing place in the blocks around the square to try a beer and rest my feet. I had hoped to try an Austral.
