Far Out Brew Pub — Cuenca’s Best Craft Beer!

The “Far Out” is the one and only German Brew Pub and Rock Cafe in Cuenca!! It is located in the historic city center of Cuenca (Juan Jaramillo 7-36).

Silvio Hellemann (a German Expat who lives in Cuenca) is the owner and dedicated Brewmaster, and has been brewing craft beer in Cuenca since 2012. Hellemann believes quality comes first when brewing beer, and imports all of his ingredients directly from Europe and the USA (using reliable sources and no GMO). Every step of his brewing process is carefully controlled, using strict traditional German standards resulting in 3 popular styles of beer he currently has on tap (a smooth blonde German style, a lovely hoppy red ale, and a malty black nitro stout).

This week (Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday) Silvio invites you to stop by from 6pm to 8pm and try his beers at a discounted Happy Hour price…
Cuenca beer lovers, take advantage of this week’s special and stop in and meet Silvio. In addition to his Craft Beer, he also has a great selection of classic rock music. Cheers and hope to see you this week!
