#The Good: The variety of beers is unbelievable, you can also pick a selection for two people and try several beers for a fixed price. They have small and big bottles of a large variety. #The Bad Beers have international price which is okay, however food is a little pricey for Brazil. #In general It is very much worth a... More

As the local beers taste like water, this was a welcome stop. One of the waiters was very attentive, even practicing his English with me. Nice patio drinking at night in a very eclectic bar setting. I'd recommend a stop here with friends. The prices are on the American range, similar to a night out in a major urban center.... More

Great atmosphere and real ale. Expensive by UK standards but if you want some decent beer this is place to go. Friendly staff, no English spoken but as beers are described by English brewing terms it does not matter. We had burgers and brownie dessert which were good and tasty. Friday night the area is very vibrant and felt safe.

Came here hoping to find Brazilian craft beers, as they are not easy to find around Rio. While they do have several options on their menu, I ordered 4 or 5 beers and they were out of all of them. Then I asked to try one of the draft selections and it was spoiled with off flavors. The gorgonzola pastels... More

Very cool little bar. Staff are very knowledgable and passionate about the beers they sell. Good service and excellent recommendations. No wait for tables but busy enough to have a good atmosphere. Would definitely visit again and recommend to others.
