What you'll do

This experience is oriented to explore places where craft beer is made. In our first place, we will talk about how craft beer originated and developed in Cuenca, and the Ecuadorian beer, part of our national culture. We will also try different kinds of local beer. After we try a few beers, we have the option to go to a place to try some different types of chocolate, this, to refresh our mouths and be ready to our next round of craft beer. Ecuador is well known for its high quality cocoa, some of the best chocolates are also crafted here. Although, most chocolate made with Ecuadorian cocoa is produced in Europe, there is a friend from the United States who opened a place in Cuenca, where you can see how chocolate is made and try different types of it. Finally, we will try one more place of craft beer to taste some of the different options they have. Don't like beer? No problem, there is a delicious tea made out of natural local products. Don't like chocolate with sugar and/or milk in it? no problem, there is a kind of chocolate for everybody. The idea is to have fun and discover the exquisite beer and delicious chocolate from Cuenca, among other drinks.

Thomas

I love beer. I have traveled to many countries and, if I am confident about something, that is that every country is proud of its beer, it's part of a culture. In Argentina, Quilmes, in Peru, Cusqueña, in Colombia, Aguila, in Panama, Balboa, in Mexico, Corona, and the list goes on. Each beer is its country's icon. In Belgium, I went to a local bar and I asked for a Heineken, and they told me "we don't sell that garbage here.." Surprised, later I understood that many countries are so proud of their beer, that they won't sell you any commercial beer. In Cuenca, in the last decade, many craft beer have been opened, and they are quite interesting. Some of them are managed by local people, and some others are run by foreigners who have taken Cuenca as their home, specially, Germans. I love to explore those places and learn about beer.
