If you're a beer lover/enthusiast this place is a must. You should go every chance you can when it's not too crowded and when you have free time to spend in the historic Old San Juan. Located in one of the corners of the famous Calle San Sebastián.

I was amazed with the variety of beers in this places. it looks like am old harbor pub, with rustic furniture, low lights and alternative people around. The environment, decoration and music were very nice. Seems to be a good place to know people, enjoy a happy hour and try out a wide variate of beers. Some of them seems... More

If you want a rare beer they have it. If you want a common beer they have it. If it is local, from Europe, China or any other place, they have it. Many many draft selections. A must visit place.

If you are beer person or maybe with a beer person, this is the place to go! Preston one of the owners, a fellow West Virginian. Has changed the beer landscape in PR certainly and I'd say the region. We have been traveling through SJU and the BVI for 25 years. The only thing missing was a good beer selection.... More

Great selection of beers. The wings and the quesadillas are great. Good service and really nice music all the time. Come here at least once a month and it's constantly good.

Based on reviews and experience in San Juan, I expected the food to take a very long time, and it did. I did not expect, though, the poor service. None of the servers we saw in the 2 hours we were there wanted to take an order or assist. We saw this happen with ourselves and everyone else. I saw... More

I came here with my 19 yo son who was visiting me from Australia. I chose Puerto Rico since the drinking age was 18. A lounge waitress at our resort recommended it as a happening place to visit. Located in Old San Juan (OSJ), it was only a 15 minute taxi ride from La Concha Resort. The streets were pretty... More
