Numu Costa Rica has some of the best IPAs that you will find anywhere in the world. The main tasting room and brewery is located in the Solarium directly across the highway from the Liberia Guanacaste airport. Numu has a great selection of beer as described below.
The Numu brand was so successful that they have now teamed with executive chef Nicolas Devenelle to create an additional restaurant, the Numu Taproom and Bistro located in Playas del Coco about 20 minutes from the airport. They have combined great tasting beer with a lineup of amazing tapas. The restaurant is extremely comfortable with an indoor and outdoor dining area. It is spacious and beautiful and a great place to get together with friends.
