We sought this place out because we're beer geeks and this place was listed as "the best beer selection in Panama City." We found it on one of the charming little streets in Casco Viejo (it's also on the Casco Viejo tourist map that you can pick up for free). When we got there 2 guys were fixing the door, and when I asked if it was open, they said no. We were really sad, and were loitering outside wondering what to do next, so I thought I'd ask when they would be open. Someone in charge came out (manager?) and explained that they had been broken into overnight and were fixing their door, so they hadn't planned on being open and didn't have food, but we were welcome to come in for beers. Perfecto! He was super nice and very welcoming, and let us inside (cute place, several TVs) and let us order some beers and chatted with us and gave us some free tortilla chips and cheesy dip. Long story short, we ended up getting free amazingly delicious calamari with a super delicious dipping sauce free, just because the chef was about to make him lunch. All in all, this place was great, definitely check it out. The beer selection is good for Panama City, and it was nice to have a change from 'Balboa' and 'Panama', but bear in mind if you're a beer geek from the US it won't be what you'd think is a huge selection.
