I've been here twice so far during my six-week trip to Guadalajara, and will probably be back once more before I leave. The bottom line is that this is the place to get the best locally-brewed beer in the city, as far as I can tell.
The atmosphere is casual on the hip side. Service is friendly and prompt. Check out the cool sinks in the bathroom.
The menu is broad, but not what I would describe as Mediterranian. I had the Arrachera one night -- strip steak with some yummy guacamole and beans on the side. The next night I had the pizza Mexicanna -- beef, beans, and jalepenos. The latter was made in the restaurant's brick-fired oven. There was another yummy looking pizza that I'll probably order next time -- 4 cheese, one of which was brie! Some good wraps on the menu too, as well as tasty salads and pasta. Don't miss the chocolate souffle for dessert. It's to die for.
Beerwise, there's not a lot going on here, but what they've got is pretty damn good by Guadalajara standards. The house brewery is called Mineverva. Both times I visited they only had two offerings available -- "claro" and "obscura." The claro is basically a vienna style lager. It's about the only beer in town where you can actually taste hops! Nice and refreshing, if not mind-blowing. The obscura has a nice rich malt character, and beats the hell out of Negro Modelo et al. but wouldn't stand out in the states.
Anyways, a nice place to check out and hang out with some friends. Besides, I think all of us have are under a moral imperative to support microbreweries in this country. They *need* our help!
