Costa Rica Craft Brewing

Top choice brewery in San José

Just when everyone thought it would be Imperial versus Pilsen forever, this artisanal brew pub paved the way for craft beer in Costa Rica. The brewery's newer location in Brasil, a suburb of San José, offers tours and tastings of its fine products, which include staple ales such as Libertas and Segua, along with more experimental barley wines and Russian Imperial stouts.

It's out of town; ask locally for directions.
