We found this place when we were docked overnight in San Juan on a cruise in October. The beer selection is the best I've seen in any place like this. The staff are friendly enough, just a little standoffish. We decided to have a bite to eat and I chose the chicken in peanut butter sauce with beer fries. It... More

I was out in Puerto Rico in May 2014. I am really not into touristy spots and found this bar as I was wondering around. Amazing selection of GOOD craft beers. Great Empanada's and the entire staff was friendly, polite, and fun. My 1 hour stop turned into pretty much all night. Will go back every time I am in... More

I love this place because it has IPA beers. I was already getting tired of Medallas ever where I went. It's a chilled atmosphere. They open late around 6 pm which is a little off. It's really hot and humid. But other than that it's a cool spot. We went twice on our 5 day in Puerto Rico.

If you don't like beer, don't come here. HUGE selection of craft beers on draft and in bottles/cans. Many I hadn't even heard of, but where else on The Island could you get an Oktoberfest beer? It's a smallish dive bar but service is great and the staff is awesome. Didn't eat, but saw goodness coming from the kitchen. And... More

Mediocre food, beer fries seemed like they came out of a bag, ribs hard and unflavored, quesadillas, what a joke, and the service below average, I've had better service at burger King

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.
