What To Expect
Now is the time to experience the beer revolution in Costa Rica! As locals have traveled and experienced craft beer abroad, Costa Rica has seen an increase in the popularity of craft beer and microbreweries, with new flavors, new beers, and a new beer culture to boot!
Before we get into the beer, we'll make a quick stop at the Artesanos Market, hands-down the best place in town to grab authentic local souvenirs. After a quick market shop, our San Jose beer tour will kick into full gear as we head to the eastern part of the city: Barrio Escalante.
Time to get into the heart of this San Jose beer tour! We'll pay a visit to a local spot that brews their own beer, so you'll get a full introduction to craft beer, a brief history of the craft beer movement in Costa Rica, and sample some of their fine brews! Get to try three small samples of their different beers, which is definitely a solid way to start any tour.
From there our San Jose beer tour will continue through the neighborhood. Pop into some of the area's most popular pubs, rub elbows with locals and learn why these spots are so beloved. At each pub you'll get to sample either their own in-house beer or a local craft beer, and indulge in some Costa Rican tapas.
Your beer tour of San Jose will finish up in the most popular pub in San Jose, which is a great location to continue on into the evening. Our local guide will be more than happy to provide you with further recommendations and tips on where to keep sampling San Jose's best craft beers and where to grab a local bite to eat.
