On Tap has cemented itself as a stalwart of the craft beer scene in a city that has exploded with this yeasty brew in recent years, but not all of it to fanfare. Let’s be honest, many artisanal beer purveyors don’t really have a clue what they’re doing, but On Tap breaks the mould by serving up some of the tastiest beers in the city. With other locations in Palermo and Colegiales, this Caseros joint is small, but always packed, so luckily they have extra seating outside on the pavement. Get a side of onion rings to line your stomach for all those beers you’re going to guzzle.
Another solid choice for lovers of craft beer is Bierlife, a much-loved spot of locals, expats and tourists, who come for the lively atmosphere and, of course, gallons of grog. Set in a charming space typical of San Telmo, exposed brickwork walls dotted with fairy lights and quirky signage make for a perfect place to enjoy an after-work beer, or to hit before the club on a Friday or Saturday night. Of course, it’s also an ideal spot for a thirsty Thursday. Just saying.
