Clearly I left Bolivia at the exact wrong moment, but such is life.
A former coworker passed on this article in El Deber featuring a worker at Brown Fox, the beer bar I’d long anticipated (but just missed) opening up just a 10 minute walk from my old house. Some clicks and searches also revealed their Facebook page and another feature.
So for anyone in Santa Cruz for a tour, work, etc., pop down on Calle Bolivar just a few blocks east of the Plaza 24 de Septiembre and you’ll find the only IPA commercially on tap in city (for the moment). They also have a nitro tap as well, although I’m not sure if it’s dispensing at the moment.
