I have lived in Cuenca for over a year. Just started going here and must say their Stout is excellent. I sit at the small bar and get great service. Pedro never fails to greet me by name and make a point to make me feel totally welcome. I have not tried the other beers they have on tap... Why,... More

the Beer is good , but not excellent . But the real problem is their service . Staff should change. Would not go again.

I stopped in to sample a beer. I had the roja, not good at all. The worst part was the smell. It smelled like a open sewer. I thought maybe it was coming from outside but when I left, leaving half of a beer behind the air was fresh.

They offer a variety of draft-craft beers, which is rare in Ecuador. The nitro stout was my personal favorite. The ambiance was vintage and cozy. The small beer $2.50 was 500 mL and the large is served in a GIANT mug for $5.00. They offer bar snacks, play fun music, and have cute servers.

If you're tired of the ubiquitous pilsner, this is the place for you. I liked their stout nitro. My wife (and I) thought the regular stout was just so-so. We didn't eat there. It's worth the walk for a decent "chewy" beer. Besides, Cafe Moliendo is just down the street and the river walk is just a block away.

We were so happy to find this place. We are avid beer enthusiasts. There are two kinds of beer in Cuenca, Club and Pilsner. La Compania didn't have the best beer I've ever tasted, but they are a light in a very dark place. They have an interesting array of beers and all are reasonably priced. A liter size glass... More

Microbreweries are usually run by people who are passionate about beer. Nothing here shows they care even a bit. Beer was decent, the location is great and the interior nice but the place is always empty, even on weekends. Possibly due to overpriced boring food and waitresses who seemed forced to work there. Judging by other reviews, the IPA exists... More

We live in Cuenca and frequent La Compania when we need a nice rich micro-beer (as opposed to the Club and Pilsener that dominate everywhere). It is a typical Ecuadorian bar, not a "gringo" hangout (thankfully). The atmosphere is dark wood with little areas upstairs and down and one large brighter area in the back (unfortunately by the restrooms). Decor... More

Nice selection of beer at good prices. Friendly service, good wifi. Want to come back to try some different ones next time! Also nice music in the background.
