Lake Arenal Brewery

Our brews are made with pure spring gravity water fed from the shoulders of Tenorio Volcano, imported German malted grains, American hops and French yeast.  We are very proud that all of our beer is brewed with care and powered by 100% solar PV electricity and bio-diesel.  We are Costa Rica´s first eco-brewery - check out our video to learn our brew process!

Our Brews

Public Service IPA

This India Pale Ale is double dry hopped with lots of Citra, Chinook and Mosaic hops. Named after the owner´s deep respect for Costa Rica´s public services. It is also a tangible manifestation of our support of the government´s 1948 replacement of its army with education, health care, renewable energy and environmental stewardship. We too, push forward. 

ABV 6% IBU 14

Paradise Pale Ale

This classic American Pale Ale is a LAB version of the Sierra Nevada classic with notes of sweetness, citrus, and a floral finish extracted from Nelson, Centennial and Cascade hops.  It's distinct hoppy flavor makes it the house favorite and as Jean Paul says, "It's the reason I have a brewery!"

ABV 5.5% IBU 30

Chili Birra

A hat-tip to the national rage of "chili guaro", this style is made with a classic blonde ale base instead of a sugar cane based alcohol.  We add campana chilis from our farm at a carefully prepared dosage to achieve just the right blend of blonde ale flavor with a spicy kick.  You won't be able to drink just one...

ABV 4.6% IBU 14

Black Ash Nitro Stout

This stout is smooth and sweet, designed to be a tropical stout that doesn´t need a cold climate to be appreciated.  Named after the rich volcanic soil on our farm, it is brewed with roasted malt, coffee,  and cacao.  It´s also Costa Rica´s first nitrogen gas infused ale, made extra creamy by its tiny bubbles! 

ABV 7%  IBU 8

Jungle Dunkel

This dunkelweizen was our first ever dark beer! It is brewed with deliciously complex malts, no bitterness and a touch of sweetness. It has a pleasant smooth finish.

ABV 5% IBU 14

Lava Red Ale

Red ale style beer brewed with caramelized malts, which add to the rich red color and is an excellent introduction to malt foward beer style. As our newest in the LAB line-up, it is our latest push for a greater variety of classic and innovative ales.

ABV 5.5% IBU 14

Piña Blonde

Our refreshing blonde ale, infused with delicious organic Guanacaste pineapples, is Costa Rica's first fruit beer and one of our most popular.  Due to its unique profile, there is insatiable demand and you will always find it on tap.

ABV 4.6% IBU 14

Rainbow Mango 

This creation is a modern version of a traditional Weissbier.   A smooth wheat beer, it is tropicalized with local mangoes, and has an almost even split of malted wheat and barley.  Savor the liquid rainbow - pura vida!

ABV 4.6% IBU 12
