San Jose Beer Tasting Tour

Enjoy local beer tastings in San Jose!

Meet your friendly guide at the National Theater and make a brief stop at Artesanos Market — the best place to find authentic local souvenirs — en route to Barrio Escalanate. Most of the city’s beer-obsessed venues are based in this neighborhood, located in the eastern part of San Jose.

Your pub tour kicks into full gear at a local brewery that crafts its own beer. Get a full introduction with a brief history of the craft beer movement in Costa Rica, followed by a beer tasting. You’ll savor some of the finest brews among three small samples featuring different styles, from stouts to IPAs.

Continue walking through the neighborhood and pop into some of the area’s most popular watering holes, where you’ll rub elbows with the locals and discover why these spots are so beloved. At each pub or microbrewery you’ll either sample the in-house beer or a local craft beer, paired with some Costa Rican tapas to indulge your appetite.

Finish your beer-tasting tour of San Jose at Stiefel Pub, a great location to continue your evening. Your guide will provide further recommendations of places to grab a bite to eat or keep sampling the best craft beers around.

Excellent. This was not just a beer tasting but also a very informative walking tour of the city on the way to the micro brewery. I would recommend this tour as an introduction to downtown San Jose as well as a tasting of many of the Costa Rican brewed beers.
