Your beer tour of Punta Arenas starts at the city’s main square where you will meet your local guide. From here we’ll take a scenic walk through the colonial area of Punta Arenas to Austral Brewery, the oldest brewery in Punta Arenas and one of the most popular in Chile.
Once at the brewery, we will take a tour of the facilities and learn all about the beer-making make the process, from the selection of malted barley to bottling, as well as the history behind the barley to bottle process.
After this dose of beer-making facts and history, it will be time for the best part: tasting! At the showroom, we will have the honor of tasting all the beers that the factory produces (7 types) and choose our favorite. Following our tour and tasting, we will take a private car or van to get to our next stop, which (naturally) includes more beer.
Our second beer stop is an authentic local bar where you’ll have the chance to sip among locals, learning more about the people of Punta Arenas and how they like to socialize.
At the bar you will have the chance to enjoy 3 types of local craft beer and taste the differences between the industrial beer we tired earlier and artisanal beer, both made with the purest water on the planet.
The tour will end at the bar. Feel free to stay as long as you want, or your local guide can direct you back to your accommodations or other great places to drink in the city.
