Know More about this tour

After hotel pickup in Bogot, a guide takes you to trendy Zona Rosa, a glitzy shopping district that's home to the capitals top restaurants and nightlife. The starting point for your brewery tour is Bogot Beer Company, an artisanal brewpub that produces European-inspired ales and lagers.

Inside the inviting pub with warm-colored wood and brick-wall dcor, sit on a padded leather stool and sample one of the 13 types of beer made here. Depending on availability, your tasting may be a Munich-style white beer or a British-inspired dark one, such as a porter or stout. As you sip your delicious cerveza, learn about the Bogot Beer Companys process of brewing craft beers.

Back in the vehicle, head north to Park 93, a charming and walkable neighborhood full of fine-dining restaurants and chic cafes. Follow your guide to a gem of a pub called Chelarte. Take in the upbeat and lively vibe inside, admire the latest installation of contemporary art and taste a delicious handcrafted microbrew.

The headliner for the nights festivities lies just ahead: a game of tejo. Climb back aboard the vehicle and your guide takes you to a nearby campo de tejo, or tejo field. Listen to how the volatile game originally began with indigenous warriors in the Turmeque region over 450 years ago and the adaptations made to it by the conquistadors, a game that is now a beloved national sport.

Learn the rules of the game, which differ slightly from field to field, but they all involve tossing stone or metal discs at a clay target about 53 to 66 feet (16 to 20 meters) away lined with packets of gunpowder. If you hit the target, youre rewarded with a small explosion. In between your expertly executed throws, you consume beer. What could go wrong?

See if you can pick up the locals wrist-flick to improve your aim; youll find that striking the target is much harder than it appears. Luckily, a full crate of beer is on standby to give you time to develop your skills. After you toss your final disc, youll be transported back to your hotel.
