We rented an apartment right down the street from Taberna Lupulo on our recent trip to San Juan. It was so nice to have a short walk to such a great bar. From our first visti, we found everyone working to be friendly, fun and totally willing to share recommedations for both beer and things to do in PR. Incredible draft selection, good food, and lots of fun people. If you are a beer geek, do not go to San Juan without visiting here.

An oasis of great beer in Old San Juan. I wish Trip Advisor would have a separate section on PUBS...because this little gem gets lost in the Restaurant category. This place is the real thing...50 taps and many more bottles of serious beer, all in an inviting pub atmosphere. The food is secondary,(mostly mediocre bar sandwiches and deep fried items). Go for the beers, sample some of their offerings, sit back and talk to the friendly locals..

Near the top of the "hill" in Old San Juan sits a great little Pub on Calle San Sebastián. We were in PR 3 nights and stopped by La Taberna Lupulo (tavern of hops) to try more of the huge draft beer selection and get local info on the best restaurants, bars and places to visit. La Taberna is staffed by young bartenders who grew up in PR and gave us great tips.... We loved going there to either start or end our evenings in Old San Juan....this is an authentic local pub, not within comfortable walking distance for the hoards of Cruise Ship tourists who crowd the Island each day and scurry back to their ships each night at 8 pm. We loved it!

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.

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.
