The keys to unlocking Costa Ballena

Where can I wet my whistle?

In a country better known for its rum and ‘Guaro’ production, visitors might be surprised to know that Costa Rica’s craft beer industry is as rich and foamy as the coastal surf that embraces the Costa Ballena region. In fact, the annual Costa Ballena Craft Beer Festival is a tribute to that industry and draws beer enthusiasts each January to the Goathouse 169 restaurant, near Uvita.

The single day event provides an opportunity to indulge in, learn about and support the making of Costa Rican draft beers, with regional brewers such as La Bodega de Chema, Calle Cimarrona, Treintaycinco, La Troja, La Familia and Fercas Brew House represented. Tickets cost $20 and include entry, parking, five tastings and a full day of live music and other entertainment.
