Popped in here to get a fix of some craft beers (can only drink so much Club / Pilsener in Ecuador). Owner let me sample a few different beers before I decided on an IPA I liked. Prices seem on par for craft beer in Banos.

You will enjoy the many beer choices available here and a menu to chose terrific meals. The owner, originally from Chicago, opens his doors every day around 4 pm. He and his staff are very welcoming. Getting there is easy as it is in the center of Banos. Enjoy the interesting, eclectic decorum. Make The Stray Dog a daily stop... More

Quite a nice little pub in banos. But it is very expensive by any standards. $5 a beer I would think is the dearest pint in town. The food menu looked expensive too No prices on the beer menu on the wall either is a bit of a cod

My Spanish teacher suggested that I try the Stray Dog Brewpub. I was met by the owner (originally from Chicago) who warmly welcomed me into his establishment, showing me tables downstairs and upstairs. I decided to eat at the bar and sat beside a young Ecuadorian tour guide. I ordered the fish and chips. The owner then asked "do you... More

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.

Thank Jerry S
