LIMA | BarBarian is one of Peru’s first craft breweries, and their brewpub in Lima’s Miraflores district is one of the most popular craft beer spots in town. It’s a great spot, with exposed brick, street art on the walls, and loud music (during the evenings) making for a very vibrant atmosphere.

Like many craft breweries, BarBarian started with a group of friends who were tired of drinking the same commercial lagers on offer and wanted to brew the more interesting beers that they’d tried elsewhere in the world. They started brewing in 2010 and in 2011 their first commercially available beer, BarBarian Red Ale, was produced. Since then they’ve expanded greatly, and won a few local and international beer awards along the way.

There are 25 rotating taps at BarBarian, and on them you’ll find BarBarian’s core range of beers, limited and seasonal beers, and a number of beers from other Peruvian craft breweries. There’s also a fridge with bottles and cans if you’re after something different. All beers are available in a number of sizes ranging from tasters to pints, which is just as well as there’s a lot that you’ll want to try here. The award winning Chaski Porter, Red Ale and LIMA Pale Ale are always available, and of the three we like the 6.1% ABV LIMA Pale Ale, packed with Simcoe hops, the best.

What you really want to try at BarBarian however are some of the specialty beers. More than any of the other Peruvian breweries we’ve discovered, BarBarian incorporate native Peruvian flavours and ingredients into their limited release beers. The result of this is some interesting and tasty beers that you won’t find elsewhere. The Chicha Tu Mare Sour Ale, for example, takes the base of Chicha de Jora, a corn beer which dates back to pre-Inca times, and puts a twist on it resulting in a unique 6.1% ABV Sour Ale. The Camu Camu – Maracuyá Summer Ale meanwhile, is a 5.0% ABV Summer Wheat Ale infused with camu camu, a cherry-like fruit from the Amazon, and maracuyá (passion fruit).

For food it’s your typical pub grub options – burgers, sandwiches, quesadillas, wings, chips and the like. If you see a viking hat symbol next to a dish, that’s an indicator that one of BarBarian’s beers has been used to make it.

We recommend coming here twice if you can. Once during the day when it’s more relaxed and again during the night when the vibe is electric. There’s so much interesting to try on the taps here that spreading things out over two sessions is a very viable option.
