What you'll do
This local beer scene adventure will lead us away from the usual tourist spots, allowing you to visit some delightful local craft beer bars & brewery, experiencing a range of great locally brewed & award winning craft beers. As a bonus along the way, you'll also be able to see three Colombian neighborhoods, Laureles, Conquistadores, and Estadio. Meeting spot: Starbucks in the heart of Laureles to walk 1/2 a block to our first stop. About the Tour: Your tour will include 4 stops. First, BBC Bodega, Colombia's first craft brewery, where you'll have your 1st glass of Bogota Brewing Company Beer. On the way to the next stop we'll journey through Laureles to reach, Barrio Central Bar, where you will try your second glass of craft beer from a selection on tap and draft. Next we'll visit Punta Arena, a hidden gem craft beer bar with over 100 different beer choices, where you'll enjoy your third glass of craft beer and some snacks. Finally, saving the best for last, we'll hit La Planta Brew-pub, an unmarked brewery, home to several different brewers, for your final glass of local craft beer and mingle time with brewers on deck.
I'm a Russian living in Medellin, Colombia for almost 3 years with my wife and daughter. By day, we operate a sustainable retail brand producing products in Colombia. But my hobby and passion is everything craft beer related. My interest and palate was formed while living in Chicago and I've since experienced the craft beer revolution all over the world. I love chatting over a beer, sharing my knowledge, and learning from like minded people. I'm excited to share this beautiful city and the local craft beer scene with you on this hidden gem urban adventure.

Where you'll be
Each spot we'll visit offers a casual, friendly atmosphere outside the 'normal' tourist areas, where you can taste and enjoy the local beer flavor and learn some interesting tips and tidbits along the way. Over my years in Medellin, I've befriended brewers and bartenders, picking up many interesting fun facts about the beer scene here. I'll share info, answer questions, and provide a 'must drink' list for the ones we can't fit on the tour.
