One of the biggest selection of tap beers I've seen anywhere, worldwide . Also big selection of bottle beers plus usual bar spirits. Good service and atmosphere with background music. They serve good snacks that suit beer drinking. Will also let you try before you buy beers and have copious lists with descriptions , price and alcohol levels.

Cool spot! No Fuzz! Great gathering place. Though on Saturdays it will get loud and crowded. Have Fun!

First of all, as with any visit to Old San Juan, a "parking plan " is always needed. Once that's figured out... and you actually arrive to San Sebastián Street this bar offers an expensive variety of beers , Costco styled food and terrible service. Other than that , I probably will go elsewhere next time I'm in old San... More

Incredible amount and variety of beers. Very nice place to visit with friends. Try to park on the municipal parking lot and take a walk to enjoy the viejo San Juan ambience

This is a wonderful neighbor bar. The beer selection is extensive with brew on tap and a large refrigerator filled with bottles. There is a limited selection of bar food, but my wife and I go here for the fish tacos. I really like that they use cabbage in the taco.

This is the second year we have visited Old San Juan and we just had to make a return trip to La Taberna as several of our party are beer lovers. The selection is extensive with all types of beer available. Definitely a dive bar feel (as mentioned by other reviewers) but not in a bad way and being open... More

We saw the reviews on TripAdvisor as we were walking by and decided to stop in. What a good choice. It has that dive bar feel, a bit dark and almost unwelcoming at first glance. Trust me go straight in and enjoy. If you like your beer I don't think anywhere in old town has a larger selection. They have... More

If you are in the mood for some craft beer I would highly recommend this place! They have tons of options. We didn't eat. This place is definitely more of a drinking spot than food. The menu had familiar bar food options. We loved the decor also.

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.
