37 - Logo BeerfestIt is almost time to enjoy an ice cold glass of beer at the 2014 Panama International Beerfest. The annual event was inspired by the famous Oktoberfest in Germany and is well on its way to becoming a legend in Latin America. There will be an assortment of beers from around the world, live music, beer games, learning opportunities, and great food pairings for all to partake in.

For the cerebral drinker, lectures and demonstrations will be taking place in the conference room. Learn about the process of brewing beer, taste and experience the qualities of different varieties, and discover the best temperatures and methods of serving beer. One of the presentation highlights will be demos of food and beer pairings that complement each other by Mise en Place Culinary Institute.

Of course, the beer is the star of the show! With over 30 different types of beer and more than 90 international trademarks being showcased, there is sure to be something to please every palate. Some of these brands of beers are sold locally and many are being presented for the first time in Panama.Sample some of the local up & coming craft beers as well. Among the favorites will be Newcastle Brown Ale, Grolsch, and Tsingtao (produced in China since 1903). For the more adventurous, try Mastodon’s Black Tongue Beer, an 8.3% double black IPA. New this year is FRÜLI Strawberry Beer, and Bucanero beer, one of the greatest hidden treasures of Cuba, named after the old legends of pirates in the Caribbean. Problems with Gluten? Not to worry! International Beerfest Panama thought of everything. Available this year will also be Mongozo, a premium, organic, gluten-free pilsner. 37 - Beerfest 1
