CUSCO | Barranco Beer Company is one of the largest craft breweries in Peru, and their beer can be found across the country. It’s a family owned brewery that opened in Lima’s Barranco district in 2013, and they produce a wide variety of beers across a number of styles.
They recently opened their first bar in Cusco, taking over the space formerly occupied by another craft beer venue. It’s a small bar, with a bit of seating and high tables downstairs with the bar, giving way to stairs that lead to a cozy mezzanine level with couches and board games.
There are 7 taps pouring Barranco’s core range of beers and seasonal releases, and a small can and bottle selection with beers no longer on tap. Tasting paddles are offered if you’d like to try a few things. We recommend the Del Valle a Barranco, an 8.3% ABV Brown Ale brewed in collaboration with “Cerveceria del Valle Sagrado” with honey from the Cusco area and Peruvian cacao nibs. The Jefe Weiss, an easy drinking 4.8% ABV Hefeweisen is also great, as is the award winning Lupulager, a surprisingly hoppy 5.0% ABV lager. If you don’t want beer, there’s also a house red and white wine, and a handful of cocktails.
For food, it’s a small menu of pizzas, sandwiches and bar snacks.
