Playa’s New Microbrewery
Carmen Beer Co. showcases two primary or classic beers brewed on-site. There’s a Clara or Tropical Ale and a Negra or a dark stout, with a significant coffee flavor. The Black & Tan, which is a blend of the clara and negra, is really good. Beer is served in a snifter or goblet to let you enjoy the aromas.
The future looks bright for this place! The craft brewery affords the opportunity to play with many flavors. Creating unique specialty beers such as chocolate stouts or fruity ales is their plan. Eventually the brewery will have 5 or 6 other classic beers on tap that will become staples and will make up their sampler. Their standard beers will range from 4 to 4.8% alcohol content.
Carmen Beer Co. has a nice seating area, bar and some high tables as well. There are also a few games you can play such as Foosball and the tailgating classic, bean bag toss. A wall of glass that lets you gaze through at all of the brewing facilities.
Feel like ordering a pizza to go with that beer? The microbrewery has teamed up with Perché No restaurant / pizzeria, located right next door. A delicious forno-oven pizza is delivered to your table in minutes!
The Carmen Beer Company is located in Plaza Xaman-Ha, beside Office Max. This trendy new strip mall is right on the federal highway, across from the Centro Maya Mall. Business hours are Tuesday – Sunday from 2pm to 10pm.
