Nicaragua is not known for its innovative brews and you won’t find many craft brewmasters in this part of the world. In fact until recently, you’d be hard pressed to get your hands on anything other than a Toña or Victoria. Occasionally a seasonal variety would find its way to San Juan’s popular bars, but really Nicaragua is ‘rum country’ and Flor de Caña pretty much has the monopoly.
But we’ve got good news for beers lovers. All that’s changing. The craft beer scene is slowly, very slowly, finding its way down to our beloved beach town. And San Juan del Sur Cervecería owners Brendan DeBlois, Matt Greenberg and Bobby Hottensen are leading the way.
