Stopped in for a quick lunch and was pleasantly surprised at the great service and awesome veggie burger (black bean). That as long with some great brews on tap, make this a place to return.

Loved, loved, loved the craft brews! Bartender's need a little customer service training. Liked to talk amongst themselves rather than help the customers. But you can overlook that for the awesome beerrs!

Just drove into Tamarindo and was so hungry. When I saw local beer I knew this was the place. Had their amber beer and the best plantains and ceviche. Going to go there again

Location is on the beach, the food is great and they now make their own beer! We had the Pale Ale and IPA-delicious! Just remember that you're on Costa Rica time - sit back, relax, and don't expect to rush anytime soon.
