BBC, or Bogota Beer Company, is one of the artisan beers made in Bogota, and one of my personal favorites. So when I was invited to check out the biggest small brewery in Bogota, I couldn’t resist.
Here are some of the highlights.
As you can see, it really is a small brewery.
With some important philosophy on the walls…
I agree with Sofocles here; the perfect diet is composed of bread, vegetables…and beer.
A bird’s eye view of the bottling area.
A bit squished, but producing lots of good beer for the city.
Our kind guide explained the brewing process,
Beginning with the raw materials…
Studied and examined in the brewery’s laboratory.
Here’s the secret fridge where they keep the samples…
But a peek in reveals little of interest except to a scientist.
Here are the bottles ready to be filled.
All packed and ready to be shipped off.
And as a good finish to a brewery tour, we enjoyed a freshly bottled Honey Ale, winner of international awards.
At room temperature, of course, since the true taste of beer comes through only at room temperature.
