A New Craft-Beer Culture
Corona Lite, it is not: cerveceria La Rana Dorada (“The Golden Frog”) is a craft-brewing operation that’s distinctly Panamanian. Their four distinct beers—a pilsner, a pale ale, a white beer, and a porter—are created at its Casco Viejo location, then served both there and at an accompanying pub in the northern end of the city. Despite its convivial English-style brewpub atmosphere, there’s a specific Central American pride brewed in with the hops—the operation even draws its name from a rare, endemic species of toad.
