Join the Medellin Guru staff, readers and friends for food and drinks at 20Mission Cerveza at 6 pm on Wednesday, July 17.

20Mission Cerveza is Medellín's newest brewery located in El Poblado with lots of space for our meetup including a large bar and high tables for mingling.

Come out and try the six beers brewed here, unique cocktails and good food including what some expats have called the "best ribs in Medellín".

This huge brewery opened late last year with a goal to provide high-quality beer to the Colombian market with a restaurant, bar and event space bringing together everything you love.

20Mission Cerveza is located at Calle 16 # 43F-66 in the Manila barrio of El Poblado, Medellín. It's located about a 10-minute walk from the Poblado metro station or a minimum-fare 5,500-peso taxi ride from the metro station. After it's dark we don't recommend walking.


1. 75 Free beers! – the first 75 to arrive will receive a free beer courtesy of 20Mission Cerveza.

2. Meet other expats – the Medellin Guru meetup is a very good way to network and meet other expats living in Medellín or visiting.

3. Get your health insurance, visa, legal, real estate, healthcare and dental questions answered – over 10 experts were at each of last six events to answer your questions and we have invited more experts in July.

4. The Medellin Guru meetups are now the largest monthly expat events in Medellín. Our last six meetups averaged over 165 attendees each. We expect another big turnout in July!
