I was very happy to find Continental and Puerto Rico beers here. Plenty of options both on draft and in bottles. Very slow and laid back environment. A beer lovers Haven on this island.

Really nice, laid back beer bar. Most of the beers are imported, but I did get my hands on two local craft brews from PR. While seating seems somewhat limited, there are some standing areas near the back as well as another seating area back there by the bathrooms with two fairly large tables and chairs.

I was surprised to find craft beer in Old San Juan, but this place had loads! Service was very friendly and quick (you have to go up to the bar), our bartender even created a drink for us. If you go in back (near the restrooms) they have chalk to draw on the walls with.

Really good selection of craft beers, but very disappointed that there were only two PR brews on offer, a bit pricey too. But really annoying was the staff, after some initial help in sampling a couple of beers, we were ignored until a third bartender came in and took our order. We saw at least three other customers come in... More

The place has an immense amount of character. Our first experience here was in the daytime - Mina took excellent care of us. They have some great beer cocktails that were definitely something that was unique and exciting. Interestingly enough, one of our friends who was showing us around on the island took us back to this exact spot, not... More

I'm a long time regular but I probably won't come back again. They jacked up the prices pushing the locals out. This bar will now become just another cruise ship tourist bar. What a shame. At least they kept the bartenders which are super nice.

Adolfo, We are heartbroken to hear that you think that we have "Killed The Bar." Its worth mentioning that Chris Hoppe, one of the 2 founders of the bar remains a partner and an integral part of its daily operation. The truth is that we are reviving a struggling company, one that we fell in love with 4 years ago.... More

Since their opening four years ago, Teberna Lupolo has established themselves as THE beer place in town. 30 beers on tap, in a rustic and rough interior, with cool, trendy and knowledgeable people behind the counter. Got to taste quite a lot different beers during my four evenings in town, and it really made the difference for me. Great for... More

After getting settled in our rental house we went exploring our first night. Imagine our surprise upon finding a restaurant featuring craft beer. Sampling new brews and craft houses is one of the things we do at home in Louisville. Great selection! The bartender was terrific and offered samples before a full pour. I am sorry to say we did...

I'm not a big beer drinker but my boyfriend is so I brought him here for a birthday drink. He was thrilled by their selection (so many hard-to-find and new breweries), and the bartender even found something delicious for me. The big open windows makes it a good spot for people-watching!

Seriously rad. From Colorado, I didn't expect to see many new beers in Puerto Rico. So glad to see how wrong I was :)
