If you are a fan of artisan craft beers then Palmas Station in CataÃ±o is the place to be on Saturday April 28, 2012.
The 2012 Puerto Rico Craft Beer Festival is being held at Palmas Station will feature around 400 beers from around the world and you will have 5 hours to sample your way through them all; OK may be not them all.
Admission costs $40 (+ IVU), which includes commemorative tasting cup, and UNLIMITED one ounce samples. To put that into perspective:
20 one ounce samples = 1 English Pint
So you should be able to sample a good selection of the 400 beers on display. Just make sure you have a designated driver to get you home safely.
As well as touring the worldâ€™s craft beer offerings, there will be live music, beer friendly food and non alcoholic drinks available. Note: food and non alcoholic drinks are not included in the admission price
