Pioneras Casa Cervecera

Craft Beer in Castro

True to its name, two pioneering local female brewers opened Castro's first craft brewpub, a supremely cozy retreat in Nercón. The 11 varieties on tap are all brewed in-house, while the bottle menu includes US brews rarely seen in Chile (Rogue, Goose Island) and a handful of Belgians. The IPAs are a work in progress, but the imperial red ale should please connoisseurs.

Pub grub is also served. Bus 2 (CH$350) from O'Higgins stops right in front until 8:30pm; afterwards, it's a 30-minute-odd walk. Alternately, get an Uber (CH$2000 to CH$2800).
