Monteverde Beer House
Craft Beer Swings Into Monteverde
We found evidence of a craft beer movement everywhere we traveled in Costa Rica, including in Santa Elena. The Monteverde Beer House opened in 2014 to shower home-brewed beer, Costa Rican craft brews, and simple Mediterranean food on the locals, wildlife watchers, and backpackers that pass through town. You'll usually find two home-brewed beers on tap, housemade ice cream, and a very solid menu that touches on Middle Eastern classics, including babaganoush and falafel. The well-executed patio out back is the perfect place to curl up with a book, a pale ale, and the neighborhood cat.
