From hobby to business, Botto Bar comes from the well-known homebrewer Leonardo Botto, the one who won Eisenbahn's first homebrew contest many years ago. Botto Bar takes his love for beer and puts it in a small, comfortable bar in the northern part of the city. An easy walk from the Estacio subway station, Botto Bar could be seen the area's antidote to Pub Escondido, CA.

A fun filled atmosphere greets you when you walk inside. Not only buzzing with people, but a friendly greeting on the menu from the owner to you, beer signs all over, and a handwritten tap list to the right of the bar. The place isn't huge, but I suspect has seating for 40.

Nothing but draft beers at Botto Bar. 20 taps, all pouring, and available in multiple sizes, (in some cases, even a liter). Imports and domestics are featured, serving Noi, Paulaner, Hocus Pocus, Roter, Fullers, Eisenbahn, Gouden Carolus, and Chimay. Pub Escondido, CA overall list in similar in quantity, but has a few more "harder to find" kegs. Both my beers were in great shape. To enchance this, the staff was very helpful.

Botto Bar is yet another great spot which has been established since my last visit to Rio, and is worth the metro ride to. Other bars like Hellish Pub and Aconchego Carioca are just down the street, and are also beer centric places too.
