Bogota Craft Beer Guide

BOGOTA | Colombia isn’t well known for its craft beer scene, and there’s not much out there when searching for a Bogota craft beer guide. In fact, Bogota is one of the most highly concentrated examples of brewery ownership in the world – over 99% of the beer market is ultimately owned by Anheuser-Busch InBev. Despite this, there is an emerging craft beer scene, with Colombian entrepreneurs who have grown tired of drinking substandard beer doing their part to change things.

From early pioneers like Bogota Beer Company (who were purchased by Anheuser-Busch InBev in 2015), to up and coming breweries like Statua Rota and  El Mono Bandido, there’s no shortage of good beer being brewed in Bogota. And with bars like El Sindicato Cervezas Artesanales Unidas opening up and offering Bogotans close to 100 different beers from across Colombia and further abroad, things are looking up for craft beer drinkers in this city.

While the Bogota craft beer scene is still in its relative infancy compared to many other large cities around the world, the scene has evolved to the point that locals and visitors no longer have to accept bad beer.

Here’s the list of our favourite craft beer brewpubs, bars and bottle shops in Bogota. Is your favourite here?

Paul founded The City Lane back in 2009 as a place to share photos of his travels around Europe with friends and family. The City Lane might have changed quite a lot since those early days but one thing that’s remained constant is Paul’s passion for food, travel and culture, and a desire to photograph and write about his experiences. Paul has a strong inquisitive nature that drives him to look beneath the surface in order to discover what really makes a city and its people tick, and what better way to do this than over a good meal or drink, with a city’s locals, at places that people who live in that city actually frequent. Paul is also a co-host of The Brunswick Beer Collective, a podcast that may or may not actually be about beer.
