Four regular craft beers: Blanche (Belgian style), Pills (lager), Pale Ale, Porter and now a delicious, "hoppy" IPA (India Pale Ale)--There are four taps so right now (February 2013) the IPA is using the tap normally used by the Porter. All are excellent. We say this as former long-time home brewers who won first place for our own IPA in our northern California county fair (and there really was stiff competition as home brewing is very popular in the Sierra foothills!). La Rana Dorada (the golden frog) is the best true micro-brewery in the Republic of Panama (there is another place here in the city that calls itself a brewery but there is no comparison in quality) and it is a joy for those of us who appreciate well-crafted beer as some people prefer lovely wines. The pints are real pints and the alcohol % is higher than in the national beers of Panama, so be forewarned. Worth the $$/Balboas...yet we prefer to go during "happy hour" Monday-Friday 3-7 P.M. At the entrance to Casco Antiguo, the "old quarter" of Panama City, yes, there is traffic, but the location is still great and the people watching is priceless. Plus, if you want, you can cross the street and walk on the Cinta Costera (coastal belt) along the Bay of Panama. The Via Argentina location by the head of Einstein may have a bigger space but the beers are not brewed there--they are transported from the Casco Antiguo location. This may not matter much, but we prefer the Casco Antiguo location and, yes, both Brad, the BrewMaster, and Marshall, the assistant BrewMaster, are extremely knowledgeable and experienced and are often happy to answer questions and share stories. All part of the color and fun atmosphere. Lots of international clients as a couple of well-known hostels are just up the street and attract an interesting mix of travelers. In addition to the excellent brews, the pizzas are delicious, too.
