Numu Costa Rica
Taproom and Bistro

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.

Numu's beer menu and the great selection of IPAs.
  • Chorotega - IPA 6% ABV 68 IBU - Deep golden color with hints of citrus.
  • Liberiana - Kolsch 4% ABV 26 IBU - Lighter in color then the Chorotega but still retains that beautiful golden color.  Hints of fruit.
  • Sabanero - Ale 5% ABV 36 IBU -  Medium golden in color.  A nice fresh and fruity tasting beer.
  • Edulis - Pale Ale - 4.2% ABV 21 IBU - a lighter and refreshing tropical pale ale.
  • Manzu - Coffee Porter - 5% ABV 25 IBU - Made with Costa Rican coffee, this is a really smooth tasting beer.
  • Colab, New England Hazy Double IPA - This is a collaboration with Collective Arts Brewing.  Special artwork was created just for this beer and reflects what Costa Rica is all about.  This is my absolute favorite.

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.
