Not much on ambiance, unless I missed something there is no patio (shame in such a lovely old town setting) and itís really dark inside. But itís really great to have a brewpub to visit in San Juan, what a lovely little old town. Beers not bad, found that both the Hellas and the pale ale were really good and not kit beer thank god.

In old San Juan, short walk from the cruise docks. Stopped here for a break between castles. The beers were actually better than I expected and their stout was by far the best. The have sampler platters which make it easy to try the beers on tap. The food was on the pricey side, but no worse than any other resort town I have been in. Staff was very eager to assist and provide information. A nice experience overall.

Honestly, I didnít really care for this place all that much. Seemed a little overpriced, but I guess that you are paying for location. Seemed a bit claustrophobic as the windows didnít let in very much light. The beers werenít horrible, but certainly far from great. I wouldnít have wanted any more than what was in my flight. Staff was nice, but not particularly knowledgeable.

Brewpub in Old San Juan with five taps, one of them rotating. Best beer by far is the Cofresi, the others are just ok. Didnít have the food but the place attracts the usual cruise ship crowd of Old San Juan. You can get a sample taster here for $10.

cheap  (158) Beaver County, Pennsylvania | April 24, 2008| Updated July 22, 2008
Waitress waiting outside on this hot day to greet you. Very nice inside and the food is pretty expensive. Nice polished brewtanks immediately fill your eyes. The tanks are shiny copper and they are highlighted with stage lighting. 5 Old Brew beers on tap. Nice oasis in Old San Juan. Cool looking chandeliers. Floor is large black and white checkerboard. You can see giant cruise ships coming and going in the bay while sitting at the bar, quite a sight. 5 beer sampler for $9. Food was not quite as good as the price should indicate. Either way, this is the only brewpub in Puerto Rico and if you are on the island and a ratebeerian, you must stop in and check out the brews.

Friendly and accomdating. We were shown a spot at the bar by smiling hostess and bartender. Good beers and an electical connection for my laptop. Food prices do seem a little steep and this is confirmed by my Puerto Rican amiga Yoly. Very clean. Good location.

Stopped in here to duck out of the rain. although food looked decent there is far too much better things to eat in Old Town. Ambiance is a cool looking brewery nothing super special but they were playing horrific 80ís love ballads which made me sad. selection not super impressive but a welcome relief to the 2 million Medalla Lights I drank this past week.

Looks like Iím another one of those tourists who doesnít do a whole lot of beer hunting outside of this place. It was good. It was big, smelled a little funky (wouldnít have had the appetite, but we were jus there for beer).

27 oct 07. Right on a corner, surrounded by blue, brick, cobblestone streets. Quiet, intimate, and cozy. Copper brew kettles right in the middle of the place. (Natives told me it was an old Federal Reserve Bank Location.) Bar is to the side. Food is very Pricey!!! $$$$$. Steak, lobster. I ordered the PR Sampler... Awesome! The rest of the food was, just OK. 5 beers on tap at all times, one being a rotation seasonal. Service was not very knowledgeable of the beers offered. All were very good, especially for being the only brewpub on the island. And definitly ... THE ONLY PLACE ON THE ISLAND.

Went out to Puerto Rico for my honeymoon, and hit this place up, really looking forward to seeing this place, seeing that Puerto Rico is pretty much all Medalla Light. This place is in prime location in old san juan. A nice, clean, fancy looking joint, that looks a bit too fancy to be a brew pub. The food menu was fancy and pricey, with Kobe burgers with a $21.95 price tag. Lobsters and filet mignon on the menu, a bit too much for me. But still sat down and had a handfull of appatizers, that were very good. Now to the beers: they had five beer one rotating called Taina, this time it was a wheat doppelbock. The other 4 are a light pilsner, APA, Stout and a helles. I had the sample flight first then ordered a Taina and a Kofresi. Service was good. Ambience was good too, lots of people due to the cruise ship docking near there. While walking out I asked how much a growler was and was told 19.95 for the growler itself and 9.95 for it to be filled, kinda pricy, I passed on it. Overall: seeing that Puerto Rico has zero microbrews I would say it is a must if you are out there, the place is clean, nice, and the selection is what it is.
