Had enough Imperial? Stop by Costa Rica’s Craft Brewing Co. excellent IPAs and other speciality beers set this beer experience apart from the standards. The brew pub space is roomy and delightful. Glad to have found it.

We had a great afternoon here trying al the craft beers and enjoying the modern and stylish bar. You can see the brewing vats from the bar too. Highly recommended for a short trip out from the city centre.

The beers are good but if you are looking for big bold California craft beer flavors Costa Rica is much more subdued. Could be the weather (defiantly plays a part), or could be how you ween a country of the traditional macro brewed light Pilsner...More

Close to where we are staying at the end of our Costa Rican adventure. Nice atmosphere and a good beer to wrap up the night. So glad Costa Rica has a microbrew. Coming from Colorado we love our microbrews.

We’ve tried some (but not all) of the beers on tap and have enjoyed them all so far. Took a couple of tries to find the driveway but it was well worth the search!

Relaxed vibe, amazing beers and awesome layout. You can see through into the brewery and the tasty paddle is a must - Passion Pale Ale is 11/10. Worth the commute out or an easy detour from Monteverde to San Jose

Great selection of beers and amazing thin-crust pizza! Chill vibes, great deck/ even in the rain. Good selection of games to play (ie, Dominoes)

We love visiting local craft breweries wherever we travel and were glad to find this one in CR. Beer was great! Pizza was good. Of course, the pizza we saw in the central market earlier in the day may have had the bar raised too...More

Stopped in on our way into San Jose before our flight the following morning and was impressed by the friendly service, good food, and excellent variety and quality of the craft beer. A must for any beer lover in Costa Rica. 5/5

Last stop on our Costa Rica trip and it was a great find! Delicious beers & food and chill atmosphere. If you are in Ciudad Colon, this is a great stop! Recommend the Libertas & Comfortably Hopped

Hi, it is located near Swiss Travel Hotel, in Google Maps or Waze you can also find it as Costa Rica's Craft Brewing Company, hope this helps!
