Tap into Costa Rica’s emerging craft beer movement with this 3-hour beer tour in San Jose. Accompanied by a local guide, you’ll explore the Barrio Escalante, the heart of San Jose’s pub culture and home to many brewpubs. Taste 10 different varieties of beer, accompanied by traditional tapas — the Costa Rican version of bar snacks. You’ll also have a chance to pick up a few souvenirs at the Artesanos Market. A small group size helps create a more personalized tour experience.
  • San Jose pub crawl
  • Sample 10 of San Jose’s best local craft beers in the microbreweries where they’re made
  • Indulge in perfectly paired Costa Rican tapas
  • Experience local pub culture and discover which spots are most beloved by the locals
While it might not have the brewing fame of Germany or Belgium, Costa Rica is home to a lively, emerging craft beer scene. Your knowledgeable local guide will introduce you to the best breweries and pubs in San Jose. Meet up at the National Theater, and then head to the Artesanos Market for a quick shopping stop where you can score unique souvenirs if you like.
Head to Barrio Escalante in the east part of the city, where the majority of San Jose’s brewpubs are clustered. Learn about the history of craft beer in Costa Rica at your first stop, a local microbrewery where you’ll taste a sampling of three different beers brewed on-site.
Next, dive deeper into San Jose’s pub culture with visits to several of the neighborhood’s most-loved bars and microbreweries. Sip on house specialties and local craft beers at each watering hole, accompanied by traditional tapas to ignite your thirst.

Your tour wraps up at Stiefel Pub, a lively bar popular with locals. If you want to keep the evening going, your guide will recommend other nearby spots where you can savor the best beer San Jose has to offer.

Vineetio was amazing. He was by far the best tour guide of our trip and so knowledgeable! We had some great craft beers and learned so much. We went to 4 different local places and had some great food as well. These were not what I would call samples more like half glasses. Really great tour and loads of fun where you get to meet new people and discover new places.

This tour was fantastic!! Guide Steven was very friendly and knowledgeable. Great beer selections at each stop with a small bites included at 2. Several stops had a huge selection to choose from. - Suggest booking agency add a way to text the guide that we were running late to meeting place.

It wound up just being me and my two guides on this tour and they were the BEST!!!!!! I had so much fun, they had lots of Costa Rican knowledge and got a fun walking tour in between pubs.
The best part was the alcoholic ice cream shop they took me to. Yes... booze and ice cream together. Yay!

Not only was this a beer tour but a San Jose history lesson! Our tour guide Jorgen was fantastic. Jorgen has a great knowledge of not only craft beer but of Costa Rican history as well.

Excellent tour. Great way to see the city and the various breweries that are keeping the craft beer scene alive and growing in Costa Rica. Tour guides were very friendly and knowledgeable about the different historical sights we passed on the way to each pub. We even stopped at a local coffee shop to try different types of Costa Rican coffee. Plenty of beer to try and the food was great as well. Definitely a must do tour for avid beer drinkers or those just looking to learn more about beer.

Beers were large tasting portions. It was just 2 of us and we learned a lot about San Jose neighborhoods and local bars. A lot of walking for us seniors but had a great time.
Tip : you can use Uber in San Jose!

Our tour guide, Manuel was very good and informative. This is a walking tour. Manuel not only explained about the various beers that we tasted, but also pointed out and told us about different places of interest as we were walking.

Very informative tour. The beers were awesome. I recommend this tour to anyone who enjoys craft beer. I was the only one on the tour and that made it even better, no having to worry about others. It really felt like I was hanging out with someone I knew for some great craft brews. When I go back to CR, I will do this tour again. Great job Manuel! Also great job Urban Adventures! I really enjoyed it. Pura Vida!
