Full description
Discover just how crazy the locals in San Jose can get over their craft beers on a half-day tasting tour of the Costa Rican capital.

Costa Rica has seen a surge in interest for craft beers and microbreweries in recent years, with new flavors, beers, and even a beer culture leading to the start of a beer revolution. Join the party and meet your guide by the National Theatre and Grand Hotel in downtown San Jose.

Before you get stuck into beer, make a quick stop at Artesanos Market, hands-down the best place to grab authentic local souvenirs. Then, your beer experience will kick into gear as you head to the eastern neighborhood of Barrio Escalanate.

Visit a local venue that brews its own beer for a full introduction to craft beer history in Costa Rica. Sample some of their fine brews, with 3 small samples to try. Next, pop into some of the area’s most popular pubs, rubbing elbows with locals, and learning why these spots are so beloved.

At each pub you will get to sample their own in-house beer or a local craft beer. Indulge in some Costa Rican tapas as a bonus. End at the most popular pub in San Jose, ideally located to continue your drinking well into the evening. Your guide will be happy to provide you with further recommendations and tips on where to keep sampling San Jose’s best craft beers, as well as where to grab a bite to eat.
