Friday, September 23, 2011

The fledgling Costa Rica’s Craft Brewing has picked up its first international award. The Cartago-based microbrewery won a silver medal at the Copa Cervezas de América in Chile this month.

The Copa Cervezas was also in its first year of existence, but Costa Rica’s Craft Brewing faced stout competition from 21 other Latin American nations and several US and European breweries for a total of 280 different beers.

Costa Rica’s Craft Brewing began operations in January. It is the only microbrewery in Central America to market its product in restaurants and bars.
