Just when we thought we couldn't manage another Pilesener (well may be one more...) we stumbled across this bar. Great choice of beers at very reasonable prices ($5.50 a litre!). Does get busy so difficult to find a table and you may need to queue to get in.

Cuenca can be a tad mild in March/April, and so it was when we visited this quirky little microbrewery. The place is series of different rooms, nooks and crannies. Our waitress was efficient enough, if not exactly attentive, but the building was so cold, we could only stay for one drink before having to leave to avoid freezing to death.... More

Slipped into this microbrew last evening for Happy Hour, I was pleasantly surprised! I drank both their Stout and Nitro Stout. Big ole mugs and reasonably priced, I will be back for another sample this evening! Also had their guacamole and chips, it wasn't fresh made, but still very reasonably priced and a huge portion.

Some of the worst beer I've ever had. Pretty sure I could make it better in my bathtub. Didn't even feel like a brewery inside, but more of a dirty dive bar with little to no passion for the beer. Disappointing.

I like to eat early and this was the only place open. Also, I like a nice microbrew. They had 3 of the 7 on the menu so I got the 750ml Rose, and left 1/3 of it. It was an OK beer and a nice change from Cuenca's usual... But it wasn't enough to get the taste of stale... More

I have lived in Cuenca for over a year. Just started going here and must say their Stout is excellent. I sit at the small bar and get great service. Pedro never fails to greet me by name and make a point to make me feel totally welcome. I have not tried the other beers they have on tap... Why,... More

I stopped in to sample a beer. I had the roja, not good at all. The worst part was the smell. It smelled like a open sewer. I thought maybe it was coming from outside but when I left, leaving half of a beer behind the air was fresh.

They offer a variety of draft-craft beers, which is rare in Ecuador. The nitro stout was my personal favorite. The ambiance was vintage and cozy. The small beer $2.50 was 500 mL and the large is served in a GIANT mug for $5.00. They offer bar snacks, play fun music, and have cute servers.
