(QCOSTARICA)  As craft beer tourism continues to grow as one of the most popular trends, Costa Rica has become the go-to spot for those looking to savor the many options of brews. With over 40 microbreweries, this small country has become one of the hottest places in Latin America to grab a cold, refreshing glass.

In an effort to find a singular “tico” flavor, the Costa Rica Craft Brewers Association began a local movement that forever changed the country’s beer culture. Since 2011, the popularity of microbreweries has taken over the nation, making San Jose the center of this movement.

In celebration of Costa Rica’s craft beer revolution, local and international companies will come together to celebrate Oktober Beerfest in a tropical setting. For the last four years, the festival has become one of the largest platforms for small and established breweries to showcase their unique offerings.
