“Craft Beer Bar in Mexico!!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2012 via mobile

Best chill beer bar in mexico. Incredible selection of germans, crafts, belgians, and mexican craft. The apps to pair with the food we had was fresh made kielbasa and sausage with mustard. And we had some others but it was fuzzy. We were rippin shooters with the owner. Played incredible music from Beatles to Stones to Santigold to Florence and the Machine. Place is chill as hell and the people are friendly as all hell.

“Great Little Beer Destination”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2012

As the beer reviewer and columnist for Beer Connoisseur Magazine, I kind of make it a point to check out as many beer bar bars, pubs, and breweries as I possibly can when I travel. After years of travel to the Yucatan, and one failed brewpub in Cancun back in the late 90s, we now have Club de la Cerveza, in Playa. Nestled away on the much quieter north end of La Quinta, this is the ideal place to drop anchor and enjoy some amazing beers - both Mexican craft beers, as well as international favorites. We visited twice during the week we were in Playa, and Miguel made us feel like family from the minute we walked in. This pub has such a great, organic vibe, with lots of wood and open airy space, even for such a small location, that it's impossible not to love it. The Beer Geek in me was in heaven, as I got to sample beers from a number of Mexican breweries like (memory's a bit hazy for some reason) Tempus, Cucapa, Minerva, and Calavera. In addition to the Mexican beers, Miguel stocks a fine selection of "imports," including all three Chimays (Rouge, Bleu, Blanche), and one of my all-time favorite Belgian ales - LaChouffe. The food menu is limited given their space, but that does not mean it is not exceptional - far from it. On our two visits we had the pommes frites, crostini with various toppings, onion rings, and one of the finest bratwursts I've had outside of Bavaria. Miguel is truly passionate about his beer, and his passion shines through in the way he keeps Club de la Cerveza going. Even in the face of difficult supply chains, Miguel always has a good number of interesting beers on the list. If you love beer, or if you merely like beer but want to see what the new face of pubs looks like these days, do not miss a chance to visit Club de la Cerveza.

“I don't always drink Beer”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2012

I don't always drink Beer, but when I do I go to el Club de la Cerveza.

It is really the only place in Playa del Carmen were you can get a good selection of beers from all over the world. The atmosphere is superb and the staff is friendly.

I loved the popcorn they served (for free) and I always ask for onions rings.

Highly recommended.

“Breaking new ground in Playa del Carmen”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2012

I have been coming to mexico for well over 20 yrs. I am a beer lover and love choices. It is unfortunate that mexican beer is great but there are few choices. This has now changed, due to Miguel the owner of club de la cerveza. His bar has craft beer from all over mexico plus germany, belgium , usa, etc... Yes you can get chimay here, Paulaner , duvel, Sam adams , this list is endless. My favorite thing is trying mexican beers Ive never even heard of but are not like corona. Stouts, ipa and honey beers. Miguel the owner is always there with a smle and loves to talk beer. If you like beer this is a must stop. The prices are low as well.

“The only place of its kind of 5ta avenida”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2012

If you want bells and whistles and loud clubs with trendy cocktails, there are many places to go on 5ta avenue. But there's only one place like Club de la Cerveza. One the quiet north end of la 5ta, this feels more like a neighborhood bar where you can choose from 80 gourmet local and European beer and ales and have good conversation with new friends, old friends, or with the friendly proprietor, Miguel.
