If you’re looking for a hoppin’ good time (pun 100% intended) this Saturday, look no further than Chile’s own Szot microbrewery as they celebrate their seventh anniversary.  Run by United States-born Kevin Szot, with the help of his wife and kids, Szot has been churning out his beers to critical acclaim for seven years, and the future looks bright.  As part of the celebration, Szot will have their own brick-oven pizza churning out fresh pies, as well as the summer’s best, pastel de choclo.  Naturally, they’ll be slinging drinks, too.

If that’s not enough, the celebration will mark the fourth collaborative brew as headed by Szot, which will include Brugge, La Comarca, and Trog breweries.  If number four is even half as good as number three, it will be nothing but delicious.  Finally, Szot will be releasing 100 bottles of their very small production 2013 merlot.  That’s a collector’s item if we’ve ever heard of one.

Entry to the event is $5.000 CLP, and it runs from 12 pm to 7 pm this Saturday, January 11.  Szot Microbrewery is located at Camino a Melipilla Km. 31.5.  To arrive, head to Santiago’s Estación Central, and take a bus from platform 76 on the upper deck.  Don’t miss out!

Saturday At SZOT Brewery

Saturday, June 22 will be a day worth spending outside of Santiago.  Starting around noon and ending around 4 pm, Kevin Szot and his brewery located just outside of Santiago will be offering beer tastings, local wine tastings, and they’ll even have their 10% barley wine on hand.  Additionally, the brick oven will be pumping out pizzas to whomever should be so interested.  Need more reasons to go?  Well, they just got some new equipment from Kross Brewery, so a tour of the ever-expanding digs is worth a short drive out of town!  Saturday, beer, pizza.  Yep, perfect.  [via Szot]
