“Beer Lover's Haven”
Reviewed April 4, 2014

After about 1 day of nothing-but-Dos-Equis in a fancy Playacar resort, the homebrewer/craft beer enthusiast will be thirsting for an IPA, stout or anything with a little substance to it. If this sounds like you, get out of there! Head into town. It’s a bit of a trek all the way down to the end (38th) of 5th avenue, but that just means you’ll be extra thirsty when you get there. The first thing you’ll notice when you get here is the cozy atmosphere, with about 8 tables outside and a natural-wood-finish-feeling bar inside. The beer menu changes regularly, as they will get specialty beers in from all over the world, but there seems to be some staples that are always available. These include many craft Mexican beers, plus a good selection of familiar names from Europe and North America. Between my wife and I, we tried a few local craft beers. Our favourite was Mano Pachona IPA from a brewery called Albur. We made another trip back later in the week to get another taste of that! They have a small food menu, and the only things we tried out were the chicken tacos. They were definitely up there with the best tacos I’d had there and they were super cheap. If you want some good interesting beer, there aren’t too many options in the neighbourhood, so you’ll have to check this place out. The beer’s great and still cheaper than British Columbia prices. I also have to mention that the service was excellent. The folks on staff we super friendly and obviously very passionate about good beer. They gave us a great dinner recommendation for La Cuevo del Chango. This place is right around the corner and has some unbeatable décor and food.

“Refreshing change!”
Reviewed March 29, 2014

For years all you could get were the 4 or 5 beers that all bars or restaurants sold, of course from only one of the distributors....due to the fact that the big beer companies would only allow one distributor in. A few places brought in imported beer, and a few shops popped up selling off the shelf. This was a good start, but not until Club de la Cerveza opened was there a legitimate place to get great micro brews and great draft beers in Playa del Carmen. The ambiance is very nice and inviting and a great place to meet friends. I highly recommend all beer lovers, and especially beer connoisseurs, visit the Club de la Cerveza!!

“Excellent club”
Reviewed March 28, 2014 via mobile

Do not miss this gem . With a intriguing collection of beer from throughout the world, this is a perfect balance with the international visitors to Playa. They even sell Gluten Free beer, a necessity for my gluten free friend. They assured me they would have some while he was visiting and yes they did.
We became friends with Miguel, the owner who takes pride in the product he sells. His staff, Eric, Alex and Diego are respectful and knowledgeable of each beer they serve. It is without a doubt the place to enjoy a beer or two along with their tasty food they serve.

“Excellent beer selection, friendly staff and yummy food”
Reviewed March 2, 2014

My boyfriend and I discovered Club de la Cerveza a few nights into our trip and we enjoyed it so much we went back several evenings. If a more laid back environment where you can have a conversation with your company is how you want to spend your time while enjoying a few drinks-- this is your place.

The highlights include:
-A wide variety of international beers and Mexican craft beers, and other alcohol options if you prefer
-Great relaxed atmosphere, created by great music, outdoor patio area and clean restaurant
-Friendly bilingual staff
-Delicious food: specifically the, Croquetas de Pollo which were served with an amazing dipping sauce
-Fair prices for food and drinks
-Free wifi
