San Jose is the cultural center of Costa Rica and that extends to more than just theatres and museums.
Craft breweries have recently popped up across the city, challenging the local love affair with mass-produced lagers.
Visit a few of these pioneering breweries and sample their fresh creations along with tastefully paired tapas. Owners and master brewers will explain their product as you tour around their facilities.
While the country’s climate requires importing most of the barley and hops, creative brewers are incorporating local flavors like coconut, cacao, guava, and mango, which gives their brews with distinctly tropical tastes.
