Beer tasting planned in Heredia

The fourth annual exposition of Costa Rican beers takes place Saturday at the Petregal event center in Heredia.

The hours are from 11:30 a.m. to 7 p.m. Admission is 12,000 colons, almost $24.

The  Asociación de Cerveceros Artesanales de Costa Rica sponsors the beer tasting.

Most of the beer makers are small scale and are relatively unknown even among the beer-drinking public. The association warned on its Web site that some of the brewers might run out early.

Those who purchase an entry ticket receive a small container with which they can taste the various beers. However, they also have to purchase 1,000-colon tickets. Each ticket can be exchanged for a five-ounce sample of beer.

Anyone who gets drunk and causes a ruckus will be ejected, the organization said.
