Beer selection did not match the menu. Slim pickings, so coming from Colorado the beer was average at best. Galápagos is amazing though!

We had really been looking forward to this visit. Several of their beers were unavailable. No luck trying the IPA we’d hoped. We had to move our seats twice to escape smoking immediately nearby. (Smoking is permitted throughout the second floor, and on the balcony...of first floor.) Food was mixed. (Family that ordered fried shrimp were happy; those who ordered burgers were disappointed.).More

Great energy & beer. They have a good menu and portions. Really enjoyed the view and different levels. They also have great souvenirs for beer lovers back home.

I am not a beer drinker, but really enjoyed the beer here. They a wonderful red. The owner stopped me on the sidewalk wanting to trade the microbrew t-shirt I had on with one of his. Who am I to pass up a great opportunity....In our group went. The view from the top floor is spectacular. Wish we would have gone back when it was a little lighter out, but we still loved the view. Even the kids enjoyed being there. Ordered some snacks and everything was very good. There is something about pub food and they nail it. Great place to pop in for a few brews and relax. Owner is super nice/friendly. Would definitely go back.More

A wonderful local brewery. View from upstairs is nice, great music, and just fun atmosphere. Had 2 tasting flights server definitely didn't listen as she gave me 2 of the same on one but that's ok it was still good. Reasonably priced. Would definitely come...back. Also if you spend over $20 I think it was they take credit card which was great.More

Hands down the best craft beer we had during our 8 days in the Galapagos on 3 separate islands. We actually got to arrange a visit to the brewery outside of town and it was an absolute delight. The craft involved and their passion is...so apparent. If you can try the White Stout - just released May 2022. Fantastic. Bold coffee without any acrid aftertaste. Not overly sweet. Just balanced and refreshing.More

Santa Cruz Brewery is a great place to grab a beer or a bite to eat. This was probably the place I frequented the most during my stay. Can't wait to come back and visit!

We visited Santa Cruz Brewing twice on our 3 nights in Puerto Ayora, it was the perfect place for an after dinner drink, with a great second story (and third, but we opted for the second floor) which overlooks the bustling street below. They're beer...selection is diverse, and they do an excellent job with the different flavours and styles of beer they produce. We drank the Belgium Ale , Saison and the Tropical Fruit Sour. We especially loved the Fruity Sour for the punchy fresh taste.More

This is a busy place downtown there are two floors. There are live local bands that play. The service was wonderful. We had great views of the harbor. We ordered chicken wings and chicken sandwich. The beer was amazing.
