A Pola at the Pub
Hello Hivers and beer lovers, happy weekend to all!
For this week's #BeerSaturday, I'm going to tell you about one of the beers I tried last month on my trip to Bogotá, Colombia.
And speaking of beer, did you know that in Spanish we say Cerveza? But depending on the Spanish-speaking country where you are going to drink it, there are many different ways to ask for a beer. For example, in Colombia, it is called Pola. In Venezuela, we say Birra. In Spain, they drink a Caña. And in Mexico, a Chela.
So I'm going to tell you about some polas we tried in Colombia.
One Sunday, we were walking through the flea market in Usaquén. In the pedestrian streets near the square, there are many places to eat or have a drink, and one that caught our attention immediately was a pub called El Irish.
The pub had a great bar as a focal point.
And the decoration of the place was very nice.
They brew their own craft beer, and although they also offer other brands, we tried the local ones. Their brand is called Pola del Pub.
I ordered the Pola del Pub IPA, a medium-bodied and slightly bitter with a slightly fruity taste beer. I liked it.
But I liked the one my son ordered even more. A special of the house, a Saison beer with a touch of honey. It was even tastier than the IPA I ordered.
To go with the polas, we ordered a portion of empanaditas bogotanas and fish and chips, and everything was tasty.
While we were there, some musicians arrived to play traditional Irish music, which added to the already pleasant atmosphere of the venue.
So if I had the chance, I would gladly return to the pub. What do you say, Super Ed @tengolotodo? Wouldn't you go for some polas with me?
A couple of days later, when I was in a supermarket near where we were staying, I came across some Pola del Pub beers and took a couple to try.
But then, when we drank them, I forgot to take some pics. These were Witbier beers, lighter and a bit sourer. And one that I would drink again.
This is my post for the #BeerSaturday this week. If you want to know more about what this initiative is all about and join the fun read the official post for this week https://peakd.com/hive-187719/@detlev/yeaahhh-beersaturday-week-277-la-cerveza-te-llama.
Thank you for reading.
All my knowledge in spanish
Share the second beer with any guest and all will be fine...
You are right! In the end, you don't need more than that, hehe.
Ohh, we also use the word Cerveza here in Philippines. To be honest I haven't tried beer yet, I mean I don't really drink haha. The only drink I tried and just for one time is red wine that I already forgot the taste lol. I also want to try beer sometimes but Im afraid to get drunk, lol. By yhr eay that's a lively place to have a drink eh.
Oh sure, you use some words that come from Spanish. I didn't know cerveza was one of them. Well, a beer once in a while shouldn't be a problem. Everything can be done in moderation;) Thanks for stopping by 😊
I'm curious why many people like beer.. I tasted it before and my stomach just felt like there was an acid explosion in there 😂 I never tried until then...
Haha!!! I don't remember what I thought the first time I tried a beer. Maybe I didn't like it either. Who knows? But it's one of those drinks that you learn to appreciate.
Oh thank you Super Eli
The drink and food looks a fantastic combination, not so sure about the music though🤣
Hehe!! No problem Super Ed:) we don't need musicians, since you will sing, right? 🤣
Happy Sunday! Cheers🍻
jeje I am on it Super Eli
Jaja!!! Practice, Super Ed!!! because you know what? I just remembered that you're going to have to sing to me on my birthday. 😂😂
jaja I know you have not I repeat NOT forgotten Super Eli
I repeat I will not forget it 🤣🤣
jaja trust me Super Eli, I know that!
oh gosh you have me blown away with gifs today!
Have a wonderful week Super Ed!
jeje thank you Super Eli!
Un lugar y una iniciativa que a más de uno le motivarán jajaja y a mí que no me gusta la cerveza.... 😖😅 pero todo lo demás muy bien! 🤣🤣
Jeje, en serio? Me gusta mucho y con el tiempo he aprendido a apreciarla más ;)
Sí soy rara jajaja pero bueno sé que mucha gente la disfruta así que... adelante!
So this means Pola del pub is the brand and they have different beers? I ask because the Pola del Pub seems to be different than the one in the pub? A great bar indeed and thanks for teaching us some slang... Caña Obviously I knw, living in Spain for over 10 years now, but all the other words for una caña, I've never heard of.... !BEER
That's right Pola del pub is the brand of the beers they brew. Thank you for stopping by :) Salud!🍻
Beer, music and food. What more could you ask for? I like the sound of beer with a taste of honey :D Here in the Philippines, we also say cerveza in some places.
Hi, Kuboy! I hope you are fine.
The beer with the honey taste was good. 🍻

Thay pub looks so quaint Eli, good atmosphere, pub grub and a good beer is a recipe for a great time. Add an Irish band to the mix, and it's a perrrfect recipe. I looove Irish music!
I'm more of a cider gal, but an ice cold pale ale is what I do enjoy on a very hot day!
My son became quite the beer snob ever since he started brewing his own, so will only drink craft beers & pulls a face if a pub only has commercial brands. He became an expert brewer, made all sorts of excellent brews with different flavour, pale ales (IPA) and stronger brews as well. He even turned an old freezer into beer on tap, hubby loved it and was quite in awe.
He now has to sell all the equipment, as he's emigrating.
Have a great week Eli.
Oh, how nice that your son made craft beer. My husband has always wanted to make it, but we don't have much space, so he's never tried to make it. We have become more beer-savvy lately and love to try craft beers.
The place looks nice sis! Having beer and listening to a live band is awesome :) Reminded me of those days when we enjoy going to a city pub for a drink just to listen and watch our favorite local band perform hehe.
You have already used the number of tips you had for the day. Please try again tomorrow or buy more LOH tokens to send more tips.
I always love that plan, sis. Cheers! 🍻
