Difficult one. At the time of my visit (Jun 2014) they were not brewing on site because of construction works. They plan to resume in 2015. However they have their house beer that is currently brewed with their recipe by Coral (biggest local producer) and is a great improvement over standard beers you can find in Madeira. I totally agree that this is the best place for beer on this island. Food was great as a beer companion. Add in a perfect location by Marina and you have a real good place.

Probably the only place on Madeira to serve decent beer. Their regular brew is very nice and refreshing but not exceptional. Infinitely better, however, than anything else on the island. Good food and nicely situated.

Nice place next to Marina. However lots of noise due to reconstruction works at the harbour front.
Their own beer is nice and so is the food. Drinks come with typical yellow beans flavored with garlic.

If you are sick of drinking Madeira wine and you are thinking about having a beer probably you’ll find yourself in this place! But don’t expect too much...

On the docks at the harbour of Funchal is this brewpub located. It’s more a restaurant than a brewpud. The brew equipment is in the back. They brew 1 beer of their own. The also have Coral beer. As a beerlover you have to go there if you are on Madeira. But let it not been the main reason for to visit Madeira.

Went here three times on my stay on Madeira. The only beer brewed on premises is a cloudy rye beer that is unspectacular but pleasant and good with food. It was available to take away. The other beers are Coral Lager and Coral Tonica, both on draught. The food was good, especially enjoyed the lobster soup which also had shrimp and other goodies in it. The service was fine except on a Saturday night when they had fireworks over the harbor and the place was jam packed. Great location, on a jetty over the marina.

OK, you have landed in Madeira. If rated relative to other beer bars on this island, it would be a straight home-run, no doubt. Relative to other beer places in the world the result is different, though. The location is one of the best in town, in the middle of the yacht harbour. A nice terrasse, too. Service varies, but is not the most committed. Do not expect any craft beer commitment. Selection is limited to one beer brewed on the premises and a couple of Heineken subsidiary brews on tap. The food is quite good, though slightly on the pricey side for Madeira. The place to visit in Funchal, but you would not visit Funchal for it.
