A Great Beer is Craft made, Try it At Hop’s Brewery. Lima – Peru

An old “solar” or house from the XIX century is now home to Hop’s brewery, a Trujillian business founded by ex-workers of one of the greatest beer brands of Peru BACKUS, now they had opened their way on the business of Craft – Artisanal beer in Peru (a pretty new market here)

Do you like beer? If your answer is yes, I must confess that I like it too, but not the commercial kind, I prefer the artisanal. Maybe is the taste or the variety of options.. maybe is that we are also helping to grow a small or medium size business and encouraging good competition and keep high standards…I don’t know, maybe is just that I like beer.

Barley, the main ingredient for beer making is imported from Germany to ensure a great taste. Even water taste is controlled ‘cos they ensure that its flavor guarantees a good product.

So if you like artisanal beer here I come with a suggestion, my latest discovery tested and approved by my friends and me, on a XIX century house in one of the oldest districts of Lima – Peru, a bar-brewery named HOP’S, 20 kinds of beer are offered on their list, prices are affordable and they offer a “tabla” with samples of their beers on a great price.

Our “Maestro Cervecero” or beer master

I was invited to be part of a visit to the zone of preparation and a beer testing, the “maestro Cervecero” (beer master) showed us the process of production from beginning to end, at last, the beers came to us! after the 3rd I forgot all the tasks I had to do that day and the stress that comes on a regular Monday (yes, it was Monday 12:30) highly recommended. You need to cheer up your day? Highly recommended, do you need inspiration or have no other plans for the day? Highly recommended, a bit stressed? highly recommended. Have nothing to do?… you know the answer.

Great beers with authentic European recipes, this brewery is also trying new flavors often offered to visitors to get first-hand advice.

The strongest (more alcoholic) one can reach 10º of alcohol, and the less alcoholic 6º ( a regular beer in Peru is only 5º ), over 20 types of beers that take you to heaven and back to earth. its location is convenient, just one block away from the famous “Museo the Arqueologia, Antropologia e Historia del Peru ( Museum of Archaeology, Anthropology, and History of Peru ) and the not less famous Taverna Queirolo, where some of the best Local Piscos and Wines are found… Trust me, you won’t like to miss this site, so add it to your to-do’s list of Lima.
