Lonely Planet review
Havana's only microbrewery is on a boisterous corner of Plaza Vieja. Established by an Austrian company in 2004, it sells smooth, cold homemade beer at sturdy wooden benches set up outside on the cobbles or indoors in an atmospheric beer hall. Gather a group together and you'll get the amber nectar in a tall plastic tube drawn from a tap at the bottom. There's also an outside grill.
