Touristy brewpub on one of the main squares. Music was typical of cuba. Beers $2 or beer and a burger for $6. Atmosphere was the best part. The beers (one light and one dark) were barely drinkable, but definitely not good. The new brewery that opened up on the waterfront a few blocks away had much better beers. Still, you gotta support any effort to get more people drinking ’craft’ beer...

Looked this place up during a stay in Havana especially for it’s beers which are definitely the best I tried in Cuba and the countries widest range. On arrival place was busy but secured an outside table and was (eventually) offered a choice of 3 beers described in no more detail than ’light, dark and black’ I opted for one of each in turn, starting light and working darker. Served in dimpled pint glasses with an average serving of about 2/3 pint though noticably clearly no standard measure existed. The ’light’ was not good at all, but ’black’ good and ’dark’ very good. Food was decent enough if rather expensive, in fact I thought everything was expensive by Cuba standards and clearly very geared to tourists as is the location (Note also the bill was overcharged which I spotted - they tried to explain the error but couldn’t!). The atmosphere was a real positive though, busy, and bustling, with some excellent live Cuban music from ’Sexteto Caribeno’ who were so good I treated myself to a copy of their CD. All in all a really good place to while away a couple of atmospheric hours in Havana.

A truly wierd and wonderful sight when in Cuba, a state-of-the-art brewery in the middle of Havana. The beers were decent, good if you compare it to the standard Cuban beers. If you’re not bothered by the ’brushed-up’ Habana Vieja this is nestled in the renovated plaza, a beautiful but very un-Cuban setting. The service was standard Cuban, not very engaging at all that is. The value is decent, it’s more expensive than most places considering it’s in the more touristy-parts of Havana but it’s still very very cheap by western-standards.

Well, in my opinion almost everything is fake in central Havana, and somehow this brewery as well; nevertheless the beers are more than decent, especially the Blond, and so it became our last stop of the evening before heading back to the hotel.

Nice chilled atmosphere inside - outside was a little more chaotic. Wandering bands, good friendly staff, choice of three beers (dark was the pick), and ridiculously cheap food (hamburger and a pint for about three bucks). can never rival the 200+ bottle venues, but a nice chilled out place to enjoy a beer and watch the world go by

Come ambiente neanche si commenta. pazzesco! Si mangia e si beve all’aperto su Plaza Vieja, una piazza in stile coloniale bellissima. Ahimè il cibo non è un granchè perchè il posto è davvero turistico. Le birre sono passabili(siamo a Cuba), sono artigianali e le fanno sul posto, ma non si fanno ricordare.Anzi...

Visited in July 2007. A beautiful large open space pub with large copper kettle just behind the bar. We chose to sit at tables outside with there being no seatage inside. We waited to be served for about 5-10 minutes before choosing to go to the bar and place our order, waiting another 5 minutes to speak to someone. I was told that a waitress would come to our table for our order!!! Ahhhh!! Poor service, not much knowledge of beer, but that’s okay. I fail to recall the name of the beer I had although I think it has rum in it!! My wife, she had a mojito style beer. Very strange, but strangely good. All in all, not bad but not superb.

Very tourist-oriented venture on a main square in old Havana. Food is okay, service a bit dodgy. Lomo ahumado is probably the best menu choice, a nice Cuban specialty. Only two beers when I was there. The Claro was borderline undrinkable; the Cura a bit better but not much. Didn’t seem to bother the throngs of tourists, who dug the outdoor grill, Buena Vista - butchering band and the taste of home in an otherwise very un-Western country. May the next craft brewery in Cuba be a vast improvement.
