3 Cordilleras is the end-product of a long nurtured dream about brewing beer in Medellín.
Every Thursday evening between 5:30 and 9:00 beer lovers fill its brewery to capacity in order to consume a Blanca, Mestiza or Mulata ale.
When Juanchi Velez Abad first travelled to the United States in 1996, Medellín was dominated by large, mass-market breweries that focused on low prices and lots of advertising as opposed to quality and choice.
Juanchi became fixated with the idea of brewing his own beer back home so he offered to work for free at a brewery in Atlanta for 5 months in order to learn the secrets of the trade.
Many years later, 3 Cordilleras is now on sale throughout Medellín – while every Thursday evening between 5:30 and 9:00 beer lovers fill its brewery to capacity in order to consume a Blanca, Mestiza or Mulata ale.
The 15,000 pesos cover charge includes 5 beers, a pack of peanuts and a free tour of the brewery. On the last Thursday of each month the venue hosts a live rock band in order to promote Medellin’s local music scene.
