Finding craft beer in Bogotá isn’t difficult – there’s a BBC (Bogotá Beer Company) nearly on every corner! But besides the most well-known brand of beer in Bogotá, there are several spots to enjoy a “cerverza artesanal” from a small local brewery.

Here are some of the best craft beer breweries in Bogotá, Colombia.

Sanchez is newly opened in Bogotá’s Zona Rosa district and has to be one of the trendiest spots for a beer right now in Bogotá. It’s two floors with huge trees sprouting from the middle of the space with very hip decor and a DJ playing in the evenings. Their “gulupa” (passion fruit) beer is a must-try. On Wednesdays and Thursdays, you can enjoy 2×1 on their Rubia Sanchez beer.
