“Jesus loves beer”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 9, 2014

Of course there is a church/chapel in this brewpub. (It is written, so it shall come to pass.) The building is beautiful!

We come from the land of beer ('Sconsin), so I say this with complete sincerity: the beer is legit.
They don't have Pilsener or Club; they have a delicious chocolate stout and a fully-leaded IPA.

Have a few beers before eating the food. They are brewers, not chefs.

Jesus does love beer! No seriously, we asked him last week and he told us him self.

And yeah... you caught us. We are brewers at heart, but you have to admit the food isn't too bad considering we are just a bunch of hop heads!

Note to self, Hire Chef ! Thanks for coming guys!

“The best IPA in South America”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 7, 2014

I visited this brewery/bar with my girlfriend and had a great time. The beers are excellent, especially their signature IPA. I have been to several microbreweries and tried many artisan beers in South American and have found a lot of them very disappointing, usually sour or just fizzy with no body or taste. However the beers here are completely different. The taste you would expect from an American or European real ale.

The 3 owners, Ryan, Dan and Nate were all really friendly and helpful giving information about Quito and the surrounding area. They have a great product and an interesting bar, and I wish them all the best for the future. Cheers

“A great craft brewery!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 6, 2014

I had seen this on line before going and wrote the owners about bringing a group. They were very gracious and took care of our group. They even asked some locals to move so we could push tables together. We had just gotten into town that day and were starved. One of the locals took a few of us to get some food nearby that consisted of meat on a stick and French fries. Perfect with some interesting beers. The owners were great and we were very happy.

“Good bar in Quito old town”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 24, 2014

Nice place in a not so good zone of Quito. Very good beer (incredible how Quito is improving the craft beer scene), average food, but of course you are not going to a bar for the bood. You should try this beer,
