The beer is good, we ended up buying 6 different flavors and taking them home. The environment is welcoming. The pizza surprised us, as here in Colombia they have a very different concept of pizza, in my opinion Colombian pizza is horrible and thankfully this...More

This is s cool relaxed place that is popular with young locals. The food is average and during our visit service was very slow (we had been warned there would be wait when we ordered). The craft beers were disappointing, We tried three different ones...More

I don't think it matters what you order here, but I can vouch for the amazing sandwiches in toasted turkish style bread being delicious. They are however almost 10 inches in diameter meaning you'd need a big stomach to fit one in. The beer selection...More

A very nice selection of different Micro brewed beers with great flavor but my favorite part is the sour dough that comes from a starter with a 150 year history! Great memories & new friends. A MUST stop.

In Buga it seems to me you can't get a better sandwich, pizza or beer that here. True comfort food. Note this is a total bar. The ambiance isn't the best and the music is loud, but the comforts or a good cold beer and...More
