Wine may be the drink most commonly associated with Argentina, but El Bolsón is at the heart of Argentina’s craft beer revolution. Read on for five of the best bars that this offbeat and outdoorsy town has to offer.

For a laid-back and relaxing evening in a welcoming environment, look no further than Dos Ruedas, a friendly and casual pub. Check out the sports nearly always playing on the TV, or get competitive on your own terms at one of the pool tables.

The name says it all – Absentha specializes in cocktails, and it does them well. Indulge in a tipple from the menu of classic drinks and order up some of the bar’s tasty Tex-Mex-inspired snacks if hunger strikes.

4. Cerveceria Otto Tipp

Cerveceria Otto Tipp

Don’t miss this iconic bar to taste a selection of micro-brews, made onsite. With six varieties to choose from, including a pilsner humorously named ‘Gringa’, and free samples of all of them, there’s no way to go wrong here. Top off the visit with a taste of some regional fare, like Patagonian lamb.
