The real draw here is the brewery itself and the Casco Viejo location. We got a tour by the asst brewer and met the brewmaster. Smaller pub area than the Canejo location and a more limited food selection: basically just munchies and pizza, but the pizza is excellent!
While Casco Viejo is an interesting area that is in the process of being revitalized, keep in mind that there are still some sketchy areas here so be aware if you go for a stroll. That said there is lots of interesting old architecture here and if you are in for a longer walk the fish market and Cintura Costal green belt.
