3 Cordilleras Bar Medellin

3 Cordilleras Brewery Tour MedellinWhilst in Medellin you may notice that there are beers available other than the usual standard of Aguila or Club Colombia. You may also notice that these beers are rather delicious. The brewery responsible is “Tres Cordilleras”, and as well as supplying the bars of Medellin they also open up their own doors every Thursday evening to visitors looking to enjoy some real ale.

Located in a downtown area, the event tends to be advertised as a ´brewery tour´ (from 5.30pm – 9.00pm). However, if you´re hoping to learn the intricacies of brewery process you may be disappointed; firstly the tours are in Spanish and secondly they tend to be drowned out by the party atmosphere coming from the bar upstairs. The good news is that the music is varied with everything from The Beatles and The Cure to more modern beats, and there is also a live band the last Thursday of each month.

3 Cordilleras Beers MedellinUpon paying your $20,000 entrance you are given a glass and 5 drink tokens to test out the available beers; Blanca, Mestiza, Mulata and Negra. There are some limited bar snack foods available, but even the vast range of sauces on offer can´t disguise the fact that the nachos and hotdogs aren´t the best - probably best to plan your pre/post- drinking meal in advance!

Anyone concerned that the crowd might consist of bearded beer enthusiasts need not worry; by about 7.00pm the bar starts filling up with a mixture of after-work trendy locals and backpackers looking to kick-start their evening. The atmosphere is fun and friendly, and even if your Spanish is limited it´s easy enough to break the ice with a “cual cerveza prefieres?!” If you enjoy the taste of ´proper´ beer and are in Medellin on a Thursday, 3 Cordilleras is well worth a visit.
