Casa Bruja Taproom

I saved the best for last… Casa Bruja is my favorite locally brewed beer in Panama and they have recently opened a small taproom at their brewery in Costa del Este. It’s only open Thursday & Friday from 5pm – 9pm and Saturday morning for tours so be sure to stop by for the best beers on tap!

    The Londoner is now charging $7.00 for good local(brewed in Costa del Este) craft beer on tap. That would be 'Chivo Perro IPA' and 'Fula' which is a pilsner, both made by the local brewery: "Casa Bruja Brewery", both really great. But as the price has gone up I will not go there any more. The Blarney Stone still charges $6.00 for a pint of those same beers on tap. And TGI Fridays(of all places) 3 blocks away charges $5.00 for those same great draft local craft beers.

    Atlas or Balboa at these places will set you back at least $2.50 it can go as high as $5 in fancy shmansy places. But yes, i completely agree with this article. As a beer lover myself, these are the places you can find me when I go out at night.

    Good article on beer joints in Panama. It would have been even better if you'd ordered the same brand of beer in each place and reported on the cost. I have no idea what a bottle of Atlas or Balboa costs in Panama City.
