Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We found this brewery when we were searching for craft beer in Costa Rica. It looked great and did not disappoint. It has a great selection of beer including black lager, east and west coast IPAs Also has lots of other drink options. The staff...was helpful and the atmosphere was terrific with lots of seating. There are also food options available. Great was to spend an afternoon.More

The beers are top notch, the staff are super friendly, the environment is chill but not sleepy and there are food options right next to the brewery. I will go back again and again. Get the black lager!

Thank you for being a great host to a Surprise, "We All Are Here" Party for a family member. Ask for Helen, she is great bartender! The Wheat Mango is smooth and if you get hungry walk across the courtyard and pick up some surf...& turf tacos.More

Helen and Crew are the Bomb! We hosted a Surprise Bday party there and it was epic. We could not ask for better service and vibe. This is a must visit if you are in Potrero.

My husband and I were vacationing in Playa Portrero and walked from our hotel to make a stop at this gem! The atmosphere here made me feel at home. Couples, families, kids playing, excellent music… We enjoyed the variety of draft beers, and ordered food...from both of the box car style restaurants. One of my favorite meals while in Costa Rica was here! My husband and I played foosball, chatted with some locals, and just enjoyed being a part of what this place has created. If we lived here this would be my spot! Don’t miss it!More

Our family recently traveled to Costa Rica to celebrate a wedding. We had the most wonderful time with family friends and new friends made along the way. Portrero Brewing company went way out of their way to make this the most exciting and memorable evening...it could be. The staff the atmosphere , the management and the excellent beer all wonderful.The the owners went way above and beyond to make this the most memorable event. If you want to bring your family, they are more than welcome. There are activities, games and nonalcoholic beverages for others to enjoy. It was a wonderful, wonderful place to be! I will be back.More

Great local brewery with cool vibe of second hand vintage t-shirts for sale, nostalgic 80s board games and cool bartenders with awesome beer. Try both the mango-wheat and blueberry flavors if available. Food places in the same courtyard are awesome as well.

We've been going to the brewery since it opened. Fun, and family friendly service. Make sure to take your Yeti along to keep your beer cold. A nice selection of craft beers plus wine and a few cocktails, I believe. The food court has the...best and freshest burritos. Great chips and guacamole.More

My friends an I had an amazing time at Potrero Brewing Company. This is a great place for everyone with fun staff and great beer. My favorite was the Pitaya Wheat. It was nice and light (refreshing in the humidity of Costa Rica) with a...balanced flavor. Can't wait for my next trip to Potrero so I can return to PBC!!More
