We stopped here for a late lunch due to a recommendation from a local. The brewery was undergoing some renovations and was low on beer, but we were in luck and had the opportunity to drink their stout and IPA. The stout was excellent. We...More

What a great concept they have....excellent beer and a "food court" type area with lots of options. The hamburger sliders were excellent as well as the pork tacos!

Have tried about 6 different beers they have on tap (in different occasions) and they are all quality right out from the actual brewery! You can also sit down and even get some great food in the connected garden! Being from Cologne in Germany I...More

Amazing place to go and have some good brewed beer and delicious food. They have the only food truck parking in town. The kids can have pizza (they will love it) and the older kids (mom and dad) can have some burgers. The place also...More

We met TJ and Kathy last year as they were just about to open... What a difference a year makes. The brewery is thriving and the food stands in the "Garden" are doing great. A very low key, casual place to have a beer, grab...More

Extremely surprised to see so many positive ratings for this place. Only had 3 beers on tap and all 3 of them were extremely substandard. The blackberry sour is poorly executed (tons of dimethyl sulfide and lacking any positive attributes), and the IPA was one...More

Hello Nate, I'm so sorry you didn't enjoy your experience here. It's unfortunate you left underwhelmed and unsatisfied. If you find yourself here again, perhaps you wouldn't mind bringing up your concerns with someone in the taproom, rather than leaving without letting us know. We...More

It felt odd to find this gem of a micro-brewery 200 meters off the beach in Costa Rica. The NE DIPA was down right excellent. A must if you are in Potrero.
