The idea of starting a brewery came out of frustration at the poor quality of mass produced Costa Rican beer. The selection had always been limited and I wanted my guests to enjoy a good beer while relaxing in the garden or chilling by the pool. We wanted to show our visitors that Costa Rica has more to offer than the commercial beer you can find at every store and bar. Our brew master Alonso has been making beer for over 10 years and has already made 216 different types of beer! The quality of his produce and his pursuit of perfection in his craft really shine through at Nicoa. The water we use comes from the mountains of Nosara giving it a unique taste that will be hard to find in any other beer. Nicoa Brewery is located inside hostel Nicoa which not only makes it the first microbrewery in Nosara but also makes us the first hostel in Costa Rica to make their own beer! Come join us for a beer and enjoy the vibes that Hostel Nicoa has to offer!
