I am a total beer geek, pretty much thought I would have to do without good beer while on vacation in PR. I was so wrong. The beer selection was amazing, the food was good, and the service was wonderful. We spent a lot of time talking with our bartender Lisa about good beer, as she was as enthusiastic about craft beer as we were. The music and the atmosphere were great, and I was thankful we were taking a cab home. If you like craft beer, you will love this place.

“Chill Spot - Best Beer + Atmosphere in OSJ”
Reviewed February 6, 2013

This place was the best hidden gem I found during my trip to OSJ. It was the best place to grab a really cold, delicious pint after a day in the sun. Great atmosphere, lots of locals, and the selection was unbeatable. In the best part of town, too. What a find. Great place to meet people, socialize with friends, and people watch. The back patio is such a wonderful bonus, too.

“Great place in Old San Juan”
Reviewed February 6, 2013

This place has a great craft selection and an extremely friendly staff. Even though several of the taps kicked while I was there, they still had plenty more to choose from. They had 4 bartenders working on the Monday night that I was there, so they were more than able to keep up with the crowd. All were extremely friendly and willing to help whenever it was needed. My favorite place visited in Old San Juan.

“Huge beer selection”
Reviewed February 6, 2013 via mobile

Had a wonderful evening in old San Juan!

A local told me a lot positive think about this beer pub... He was right!

Situate in a hidden street, in a small corner! 151 San Sebastián street.

Small pub where you can drink around 25 different beer in draft and more than 150 different bottles beers around the world!

Strong in beers from California and good selection of Belgium beers!

Very good and friendly staff!

Really recommend you this pub to go with friends and enjoy good beers! Actually few couples where enjoying good beers to ;)

Don't wait to be served very cold beer with ice! But just the right temperature with the right pouring!

“A pretty cool little spot!”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

Dropped into Taberna Lupulo a couple weeks ago while walking around in Old San Juan. Atmosphere is classical "Old San Juan" with the old colonial-style venue. But the real attraction is the beer menu..that's right..a BEER menu. Dozens of styles and brands from all over. A little "pricey", but to be expected, I guess. If you want an authentic Belgian Trappist ale (for exampe) in Old San Juan, then this is the place!
