SANTIAGO | Santiago doesn’t have a huge craft beer scene, but if you know where to look you’ll be able to try beers from many of Chile’s craft breweries. Despite there being over 150 craft breweries in Chile, it’s not easy to find craft beer in Santiago. Craft beer only makes up less than 1% of beer consumed in Chile and, while the scene is growing, it’s still in its infancy.
Breweries like Kunstmann have been brewing German style beers since 1989 and were one of the first to revive “good beer” in the country. New brewers like Kross, meanwhile, can mix it with the best in the world when it comes to brewing more contemporary, on trend beers. Many of the city’s dedicated craft beer spots offer not only good local beers, but a quality selection of imports from some of the best breweries around the world.
Note that many of the lists on the internet include a craft beer and burger venue called LOOM. We visited and it was fantastic, but unfortunately the venue has since shut down.
Here’s the list of our favourite craft beer spots in Santiago. Is your favourite here?
