La Planta has a great atmosphere, especially the patio seating. If they are not too busy (we went on a weekday afternoon), they will give you a tour of the brewery which is quite impressive. They have several great beers on tap, with my favorite being the Indomito IPA. Great pub food as well!

Costa Rica's Craft Brewing Co. feels like a craft brewpub you might find in the States. They had about a dozen beers on tap and some excellent food to go along with them. The ceviche was some of the best we had in Costa Rica. The dining room and bar is a decent size with a view of the brewing facility. There is a cute patio as well.

If you're just south of San Jose, give them a try. You can also find many of their beers around the country as well.

The location was very peaceful - we really enjoyed sitting on the patio. However, the beer was mediocre at best. But, we paid $14 for a tasting flight, 2 pints, and a small beer, which definitely didn't seem too expensive.

i went with a friend for lunch on saturday. there were only two tables of people besides us and it took them an hour to serve us. and, my food was edible at best and he sent his back because it was overcooked and over salted. the manager offered him a second option (a hamburger) which we gave up on after another 30 minutes went by and still no food. the beer was good and the waiter was friendly.

After trying the beer elsewhere, we went out of our way to visit the brewery whilst in San Jose. Service was fantastic. Love the beer. Highly recommended.

My husband and I decided to try this brewery because we love craft beer. We were so glad we did! The beer was great (I had the golden ale) and I especially liked that you could watch the beer production while eating. Another cool and unique feature was that some of the food is made with ingredients from the beer; plus the menu provides suggested beer pairings with the food! My husband took advantage of the pairings and really liked it (however, I don't remember the specific pairing he had).

Fun atmosphere, great beer and yummy food! I highly recommend!

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 styles. This brewery has all the components of a terrific craft/artisanal brewery - great staff, beautiful bar, patio among the tree tops - and well made beers that are tailored to local tastes and weather. Don't expect the full flavor of the states (why would you, your experiencing other cultures right?) and you'll fully enjoy the quality of Costa Rica Craft Brewing Company.

As typical in Costa Rica the people and service is superb. Good selection of craft beers for a country working through their craft beer infancy. Gose was easily the best beer but nothing else will disappoint. We had the mix grill plate which was delicious. Plenty of brewery board games on hand to keep you around for a bit. Not crowded at all. Easy to get to with about 17 parking spaces on site.

This is a great place to visit, watch the actual Brewing of Craft Beers from the Upper level down into the Brewery below.

The surrounding Outside Patio is a terrific spot for lunch, a few of us had the "Brats" with a Wonderful Home Made Sauerkraut and a Super Pickle.

The Craft Beer selections are Awesome and "we" indulged in many of these wonderful choices... The Server was a "Sweetie" and between Our Spanlish we had Fun ordering from the Goodie Menu.

The Inside Bar has several BIG SCREEN TV's and its The Place for Special Sports Viewing.
