We had vegetarian chili over rice and a few beers. It's low season but I can see this being a fun place to hang out in high season. The chili was amazing, and he had local Ecuadorian beers on tap. Great spot.

Visited the place a couple of times during our stay in Banos and liked it. The beers are good (and changed each time we were there...) and the people who work there are friendly. Next time in Baños (if ever) we know where to go to :-)

Checked this spot out after a long day. They have about 5 or 6 micro brews on tap and all of them were excellent. My favorite was the Llama's breath. We ordered the chips and salsa and the pulled pork which were delicious! Will definitely go back if I ever find myself in Banos again.

5 dollar for a beer and when we wanted to pay there was a miscommunication and the way the American bartender handled it was ridiculously unfriendly

A genuine brew pub. Locally brewed beer on tap in the British and Belgium style. Great selection of pub food on the menu. This is a good place to hang out at the bar, or go for dinner and drinks. Friendly staff also.

We stumbled upon Stray Dog looking for a couple of beers. We definitely found some here. They have a selection of 6 or so beers on tap. We enjoyed ourselves so much we came back the next night. This time we ordered dinner with our beers and we were pleasantly surprised. The stray dogs that wander in and out of... More

The Stray Dog brewpub is a nice place to have a few beers and a meal if you want. They have a selection of 6 or 7 beers on tap and some bottled beers. The beers on tap are a varied selection so there should be something for most beer drinkers. Or try their tasting shots and see which beer... More

Quite the surprise- my meal was fantastic. Much more than a brew pub, the menu was decent and the food very tasty. Owner was very nice and helpful. Good vibes and decent beer selection, from what I could tell (we had vino). I hope to make it back.
