Enjoyed a hearty meal and the tastiest beer for a long time here. There was a choice of two beers - one dark, one light, both excellent. Thomas is welcoming and was happy to tell us about the brewing process. The place has a lovely atmosphere and it's like stepping into Germany for a couple of hours while maintaining a local feel. Good value for money but not much options for vegetarians.

We stayed in Copan only 3 days and found this little gem of Bavarian "Gemütlichkeit" on our second day. Thomas and his wife enjoy what they are doing best, brewing beer, cooking and making everyone feel welcome. The home brew and home made sausages are outstanding, you have to sample everything! Made me feel homesick. Thomas is very knowledgeable about the area and gives tips freely.

When you have enough of the local food, this place is definitely the place to go! The locally brewed German beer is very good and goes well with the huge German dishes available for a reasonable price.

Thomas Wagner owns one of the few brewerys in Honduras and this one is the best beer in Copán Ruinas, He and his wife Elsa knows what attention means, they have more than 16 different kinds of beer and always change them to give various options to their customers, besides the beer which is the main star, their food it´s amazing, try the spicy sausage it´s my favorite. Sol De Copán it´s also the best place to meet people from all over the world, t doesn´t matter if you go in a group or alone, Thomas will look for a place for you to seat and will introduce you to the other travelers who got there before you, the ambience is great, safe and cool place, definetely a must see in Copán, ohhh I forgot don´t worry the get really drunk, these German beer don´t cause hangover!!!

Thomas, owner of Sol de Copan, is a cheery, outgoing guy from Munich. As soon as you walk down the stairs to his bratskeller, he makes you feel like an old friend. He makes excellent homemade sausages, other Bavarian foods and some of the best beer on the planet. The room reminds me very much of traditional Bavarian bratskellers. You sit at long communal tables and instantly become part of the conversation, especially if you speak whatever language the other folks are speaking. You may hear just about any European language. English is the language that most travelers have in common, so most discussions eventually get around to English so everyone can take part.
Beer is also the traditional beverage of Central America, so you will probably meet some local Hondurans at Sol de Copan as well. Thomas' delightful Honduran wife, I apologize for forgetting her name, also makes delicious traditional Honduran food.
If you arrive before the diners or linger after they leave, you may smoke cigars with Thomas and have just one more beer for the hike or tuk-tuk ride back to the hotel. I don't believe Thomas sells cigars, so bring your own. The place is built on a hill, so that the back door opens onto a small patio providing good ventilation.
The Sol de Copan bratskeller is located on Ave Mirador one block west of the Plaza and north up the hill almost two blocks. The building, on the west side of the street, has a distinctive little turret on top. Obviously I highly recommend Sol de Copan for the food, the friendly atmosphere, und naturlich das Bayrishe Bier. Prosit!
