Cusco Craft Beer Guide

CUSCO | Cusco isn’t a city that you think about when talking craft beer, but in recent years a few spots have made an effort to provide great beer to visitors and locals who want more than Cusqueña, Pilsen and Cristal. There’s not much, but there’s enough variety at each of these venues to do the trick nicely.

Peru has undergone a craft beer renaissance over the past few years, and the Peruvian craft beer scene now has several breweries making not only great examples of core range styles, but also experimental beers. Sours and hazy IPAs are being created and native Peruvian fruits and ingredients are being used in the brewing process to create some truly unique beers with flavours you won’t find elsewhere in the world.

Nuevo Mundo creates beers inspired by Peru’s diverse regions, while Barranco produce some fantastic award winning drops. Meanwhile bars like Cholos provide a great selection of beers from breweries across the country, and further afar, that aren’t found elsewhere in the city.

Here’s the list of our favourite craft beer brewpubs, bars and bottle shops in Cusco. 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.
