Best falafel ever and great service (mind you I was the only one in!) Chilli beer is also worth a try. So good I went back for the delicious pumpkin soup on my last day.

Cute spot with an outdoor seating area. The brews were yummy, and they offer liquor / wine if you're not a beer person. Centrally located to the main hub of Santa Elena!

After seeing great reviews on trip advisor we decided to go. Unfortunately it was not a great experience. We were the only ones there and I think they turned the co2 on just for us. We ordered a flight and watched the server struggle to...More

After arriving in Monteverde after a long drive, we were so excited to land at Monteverde Beer House! Local microbeers on tap, and a really good selection of food. Everyone ordered something different and we all were very happy with our selections!

In Sept 2016 they had 6 craft beers on tap. A mango, a pineapple, a pale ale, a stout, a red, and a dunkel. No bottled beer listed on the menu and no cooler or bottles visible.
