A wide selection of top shelf beers (probably 200+) and surprisingly good food - both at great price points. Fish tacos were excellent. This would be a top choice in any city for beer lovers.

Came here for dinner and drinks after watching the sunset at El Morro. Excellent fish tacos and beer chips and huge selection of craft beers. Oscar was very friendly and we had a great time! Very fun and cool ambiance - great mix of locals and visitors.

Love beer? Go here! My wife and I have been to many a beer bar/pub/restaurant, and we think La Taberna has more options of beer than any we have ever seen, even against a beer bar in Brussels with about 200 beers. There were about 30 beers on tap and about 240 different bottles. The discussion of the beers in... More

Loved this bar. Great old building with high ceilings and open doors, tasty cheap food, but most of all an amazing beer selection on tap and in bottles. Quite a welcome respite from drinking Medalla and Magna all week. The beer prices vary depending on what you get, and while not cheap, they are certainly not unreasonable. Selection is mostly...

Taberna Lupulo is the best place to go in old San Juan at night. With a lot of options of beers from the tap, you can have some great food there, mostly tapas, like burgers, wraps and so on. The people on the bar explained about a lot of beers and let me try some. Always full of young people,... More

I was surprised honestly to see a bar with that extensive a selection of beer in San Juan, in the past beer in PR has pretty much come down to Medalla, Heineken and maybe Presidente. About 40 taps here and probably a good 12 pages of options in bottle or can. The setting is great with the colonial architecture and... More

A great place to kill a few hours in Old San Juan prior to a cruise sampling a variety of beers available, an entire book of beer to chose from. Friendly staff, tasty cold beers so good in the Caribbean heat. local Pub foods available too.

Been here many times and never disappointed. Good selection of beers and bartenders always friendly and knowledgeable. Decor and atmosphere very Old San Juan style. We always go early anywhere from 3pm to 6pm so not a very big crowd (I imagine late at night is a different story). Limited menu items, mostly appetizers and finger foods. However, they just... More

Dark and sometimes loud bar full of ex-pats, backpackers, and young/hip people. This is the type of place where it is OK to write on the walls. If it is not your style then you will not like it.
