Spirit of Oaxaca: Mezcal & Beer Lovers' Cultural Tour

Pilar Cabrere cooking with beer


Nov. 1 - Nov. 9, 2015

This adventure tour is designed for enthusiasts of craft beer who want to learn about traditional Mexican distilled and fermented beverages. We’ll take you into the Agave fields to harvest “honey water”, sample pre-Hispanic 'Pulque' from Zapotec producers, visit craft breweries and mezcal producers.

But the “Spirit” of Oaxaca is much more than beer and mezcal, as this colonial city is a UNESCO designated artistic paradise and the culinary capital of Mexico! On the tour you’ll experience Day of the Dead ceremonies; amazing meals, spectacular scenic vistas; and famous artist’s studios, with demos of woodcarving, rug-weaving, black pottery and more.

for more information on this tour.
