There will be booze
The second annual Craft Beer Festival will be held Saturday at Avenida Escazú, where a multitude of microbrews, food, music, and booze will be offered to an estimated crowd of around 1,500 beer enthusiasts.
Beginning at 11 a.m., Avenida Escazú, located next to the Hospital Cima, west of San José, will welcome any and all interested participants to a day of beer-infused revelry and entertainment. Admission is free to the general public and activities such as a microbrew competition, beer tastings and educational presentations on how to make home brews and beer-based foods and cocktails will take place throughout the day.
“It’s open to the public, it’s free, and there will be about 10 to 12 different styles of beer sold all day,” said Peter Gilman, general manager of Costa Rica Craft Brewing, which produces national beers Segua Red Ale and Libertas Tropical Golden Ale. “There are several beer styles available from stouts to coffee porters, to pale ales, to Belgian and New Zealand-style beers. A full line of beers and food will be offered and it should be a great, relaxing time.”
