This place is a big store of bottled craft beer, i think they have almost all of the craft beers produced by argentine microbreweries.You have a large selection to fit your palate,moreover they have 4 beer taps, one of them is a must drink... Kraken American Pale Ale.
It is a golden clean colored beer with a nice white foam ,it smells strongly floral hopped,its taste is malty ,subtle sweet with a bitter aftertaste .Bartenders are very nice, it is not a typical night pub because they close their doors very early(i think 21 hs).If you want to give it a try you can go to Downtown Matías after cervelar is closed.Downtown Matías is located 50 mts from Cervelar, it closes its doors 1 am .

Cervelar is a very worthwhile place if you're seeking out oh-so-elusive craft beer in Buenos Aires.

A nice little spot with a bar and 4 taps, and a wall full of shelves with a rotating selection of Argentine craft (Antares, Sixtofer, Abdij Deleuze, Centurión, Barba Roja, Berlina, El Búho, several others).

Also a few kind of random imports (Chimay among others).

I found the beers I bought to be hit-or-miss, but there was much more to explore here than any other store I've found in Bs As. The Sixtofer IPA and Deleuze dubbel were among my favorites.

Cervelar's website is currently a single still image, and their Facebook is only slightly more helpful. Even though their web presence says they have some Saturday hours, they were closed when I went there.

The bartenders were nice when I was there, and one of them gave me a card for a free pint on my next visit after I chatted it up with her a bit. Overall, any beer geek in Bs As might as well hit this place up and see what surprises can be found!
