This place is in a very excellent spot in old San Juan, it have a great craft beer selection both bottle and draft. Unfortunately the staff were rude, even when the place was practically empty.

Who would've thought that smack in the middle of colonial old San Juan you would find a great little open sided bar with 300 micro-beers from all over the world in their fridges? A great find! And their small plates are pretty tasty too. Nice crowd every night...

Craft beer period. Amazing tap and bottle selection here. Almost every visit I've made, the bartenders are knowledgeable about the beers they carry and I've been consistently surprised at the wealth of selections here. I've been a home-brewer and craft beer fan for more than 3 decades. This is not a fad by any means and it's amazing to me... More

This was our favorite bar when we stayed in Old San Juan. The staff is so friendly and really knows their beer. It had the feel of a local bar and we were able to step in and find refuge from the cruise ship crowds. Definitely worth going to.

Stopped in for a couple of beers with my husband while touring Old San Juan. We are craft beer buffs and were quite impressed by the selection here! Didn't try the food, but tasty drinks and great atmosphere. Bartenders were not super attentive, so that's why it's a 4. Would definitely recommend stopping through though if you are a craft... More

After being in San Juan for a week, three night were dedicated to this place. Absolutely amazing. Their beer selection is awesome with over 20 beers on tap to help accommodate both those who are looking to try new beers and the beer connoisseurs looking for some prime hops. The interior of the place is also what makes the bar... More

DO NOT leave San Juan without stopping in for a beer! I have been coming to Puerto Rico for 25 years and this is the best place I have experienced. Will definately be back every time I visit. Make sure you ask for Gustavo he will take good care of you....

If you're a beer lover, this is the place. Huge selection of beers from all around the world. Take your time and read the whole beer selection. Great place to learn about all types of beer. Nice menu which was carefully put together to offer food to pair with your favorite beer. Beer battered fries are the best!!

Coming from Colorado, I was impressed and not a little giggly when we found this place by accident on an off-season Tuesday night. It has an impressive brew selection (although many that I picked were blown but to be expected on an island) and a great atmosphere. Quickly filled up with locals and tourons and a great time was had... More
