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.

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.

Beerwise, the only issue I can think of is that they could have more beer styles than they do now. The ones they have are excelent, a German Helles, a Pilsner, an American Pale Ale and a stout; and a seasonal that changes about monthly. The double bock they did as a seasonal several months ago is still talked about. Ambiance wise, they are top notch. Elegant bar and dining areas, visible kitchen areas and friendly wait staff. Food wise, the prices are a bit pricey, but the quality is excelent. Definetly worth the visit. On a recent visit, Head Brewer, Wolfgang Lindell, was at the bar and is very approachable for questions and comments.

For the beer lover who chooses to go on vacation to San Juan, Puerto Rico, you wonít have to go far for great beer. Just minutes away in Old San Juan you will find the Old Harbor Brewery to be a pleasant surprise. Also as far as I know it is the only Microbrewery on the island. A gigantic sign for the Brewery greets you on the way in invoking a strong presence of beer. Upon entry you will be ushered in with awesome aromas of some of the finest cuisine on the island. From Spiny Tail Lobster to Kobe Beef, which is a rare find and not overpriced at all. Even the appetizer of fresh made chips, unlike any other, paired with delicious made to order guacamole, is outstanding. With the immaculate brewtanks on premise you know your beer was brewed with care. Care you say, well donít forget about taste, these beers will knock your socks off, especially if you have been a week without having the craft beer of your choice at your fingertips like in the states. Check their website for full descriptions of their beers. You will have no problem sitting at the bar or a table and drinking a few pints without bellowing with boredom. The atmosphere is wonderful with great people and great music. I had the pleasure of meeting Brad Mortensen, the Brewmaster at OHB, hailing from Virginia I may add. He takes incredible pride in his beer, you will take pride in drinking it.

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.

Stopped in here while spending a couple nights in Old San Juan. Visited at lunchtime, restaurant and bar were not crowded at all. Sat at the bar, my wife had a very good salad with grilled chicken and house dressing made with one of the on-site brewed craft brews. We tried a six selection flight, then enjoyed a couple pints of our favorites.....Coqui Lager and Old Harbor Taina Beer selection was good, but not extensive. Prices were reasonable for being in a tourist local. Bar waitress was friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. Overall enjoyable, with some unique craft brews.

Your best choice (only choice) in Puerto Rico. Try the 5-beer sample or go directly for the Kofresi. Did not have any food.

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.

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.
