Brews worth trying and standard pub fare

There was a fine range of brews available at the brewery pub ranging from pils, helles and IPA to stout ales. The food offered was reasonable pub fare, but nothing outstanding. Overall, a good lunch stop with the chance to try some local craft beers.

Stopped in here after the Flavors of San Juan Food Tour (do it!) for a flight of their locally brewed beers. Nice space, friendly staff and customers. Beer was delicious! Pale Ale (ok), stout (very good), lager (good), seasonal (double IPA and delicious), and a Helles (good). I always get local bus when I can and it was enjoyable to... More

We didn't eat here but had a late afternoon drink, and I do LOVE a good mojito. The best I've ever had.

Tried to order a ribeye they were out, asked for T-bone they were out.... I guess more of brewery than steakhouse. Beer was good, but really wanted a rib eye!!

Let me start by saying I love beer and have tried many varieties. The Pale Ale here is very good and so is the Pilsner. It is great after a hot day of walking in old San Juan. The food on the other hand was not as enjoyable. Maybe I just ordered the wrong item. I tried the Lobster Monfongo... More

We visited as part of an excursion with our cruise line. It was a Mojito and Mofongo tour. Being from a small town in Virginia, I knew what a Mojito was, but had no clue about Mofongo. Our host was gracious and did a wonderful job educating us. We actually made our own dishes while sipping on a mojito. The... More

I am reviewing only the beer, but the food we saw others order looked good. As the only real "Craft" beer on the island (I don't count magna, come on) I was glad to stumble upon it but was not really worth our time. Beers were ok. Service was ok at the bar. $6 or so a beer which for... More

The Old Harbor Brewery is a great place to stop in and have a drink to rest after a day of touring .. They have a good selection of beer with good appetizers and food.

We stopped here for lunch and a beer on a Saturday. Place was surprising quiet. We tried 3 different beers and my husband, who's British and a beer snob, loved all three. We had the ceviche and the plantain gnocchi and both were excellent. Would definitely recommend!

They have a limited beer offering but the two that I tried were good. The service was excellent but the food was pricey for its quality.
