We got lucky at hit happy hour - half off beers! I think the hours were 4-6 weekdays for this deal. Great IPA. I’d call it a session IPA. Nice atmosphere. Outside seating on the balcony in old Panama City is cool!

Service was not good at all. Beer was good. We would have stayed longer and wanted to order more beer but just waited too long. Saw other people leave before they ordered cause they waited and received no attention. Disappointed. Oh well there are lots...More

Wonderful craft beer and a really tasty menu - we had one of their pizzas and it was delicious. With Happy Hour everyday from 12-6, it's definitely worth stopping in.

This brewery is making some really good beer. The standouts are IPA and Pale. There is plenty of seating, tables and the bar. The atmosphere is very cool. If you're a beer drinker, this is a must while in Panama!

Landed here seeking shelter from intense rain. Impressed by exposed-brick, colonial feel. Old, yet modern. We were offered free flight of house beers. Ordered the IPA along with chicken tostones, which were quite nice. Followed-up with picadera for two. Plentiful. Nice, quiet place. Good food,...More

Not likely, the kitchen closes early. Better grab a bite and then head in for the brews!
