Take a Beer Tour of San Telmo

Love beer? Then why not take a beer lover’s tour of San Telmo?

The tour, which lasts 3 hours and covers 4 pubs, showcases the best craft beer Argentina has to offer from regions such as Cordoba, La Plata, and outer Buenos Aires. 

“I really didn’t want the tour to be a pub crawl type thing but rather a real appreciation of domestic beer,” says tour organizer Chris Canty. “It doubles as a type of San Telmo city tour as well as we walk from pub to pub.”

Tours take place at 7pm Tuesdays and Fridays, and include six craft beers and a bite to eat such as a chorizopan or burger. Cost is a bargain at ARG$80, or about US$22.

“The pubs I have chosen aren’t especially well known — some being out of the way and off the tourist radar,” says Chris.

Chris knows a thing or two about suds. For the last 10 years he’s worked as a travel journalist, writing primarily about nightlife, food and beer. He conceived the tour after 6 months of “intense research.”

“I have done a fair bit of beer writing the last few years, so my goal is to show people some great little pubs that serve some really nice Argentinean craft beer from different regions. 

Spanish and English are spoken on the tour.

    This tour sounds great – like a hangover waiting to happen. From what I have seen beer is popular in Baires, even among women. Quilmes appears to be the brand of choice which I would say is roughly the equivalent of Budweiser in America. It’s cheap though. Imports like Heiny are expensive.
