Best beer on the island

Great location. Even better beer. But for the location, the weather, and classic Old San Juan structure, you'd think you were in Portland.

My wife and I are fans of joints with craft beer with food. This one is outstanding. We visited it when in Old San Juan two years ago and deliberately re-visited it. This time we came away even more impressed. Old-looking, crowded, noisy, happy and delightful. We old folks felt just as comfortable as the mostly younger beer lovers, dominantly... More

I own an upstart micro-brewery, and an very much a beer lover. Whenever I travel I try to find and taste as many craft (and preferably local craft) beers as I can. When we checked into our hotel one of our hotel staff told me about this place, so I had to make sure I came by to check it... More

If you're cool with dive bars and you love craft beers, La Taberna Lupulo is your place. The beer selection is truly impressive. The food selection is Puerto Rico bar food, but we weren't there for the food anyway.

We came to La Taberna Lupulo for beers, and were not disappointed. They easily have the most extensive beer list in San Juan (it's literally a binder!) and offer craft selections from around the world. It's a bit expensive, but that makes sense when you think this is one of the few bars importing all of these beers in this... More

Great selection of craft ales. Place is very dark at night. Transient crowd mix locals/tourists. Service is sooo slow on busy nights (visited over December Festive Period) - not enough staff to cope & keep wit time reasonable. If you want good beer there is little alternative option in OSJ - "Smoke It & more Cigar Shop" & "Pirilo" being... More

Awesome place for a craft beer enthusiast. Extensive beer list, much of which is draft. When we visited, they had several hard-to-find beers from Founders Brewing on tap. They also had a considerable selection of draft beers from Puerto Rican breweries. The bartender was very knowledgeable and let us sample before ordering. This place was fantastic for craft beer; I've... More

We followed the walking tour described in the Lonely Planet guidebook for San Juan to a T, and so ended up here. Not a big place but very bright and breezy on a beautiful Boxing Day, it is a singular establishment notable for its huge selection of beers (many on tap) and scotches. An extensive list of cocktails is also... More

Great beer place with great brews. You're in old San Juan, enjoying the nice tropical air in an open bar, home brewed brewski from the barrel in paradise, and maybe even some salsa music in the background. With good company, how could you go wrong?
