You know me, I have a 'when in Rome' attitude when it comes to travel. I try to eat and drink like a local. Most of the time it works out really well. Sometimes not as much...like when Matt ate seal in Greenland. Anyway...right before Christmas I went to Panama for vacation. Many hot locations are all about a light, refreshing beer. Not a lot of hops, flavor, or intricate recipes. While this was true of Panama, I did find some really great craft beer. Two breweries were flat out amazing. La Rana Dorada and Casa Bruja were outstanding. I drank great beer, met some interesting people (including a couple living in Panama who are from Sequim) and had a really fun time. Panama is an incredible city. A lager or pilsner is fantastic in the hot weather, but check out all the beers I had below!
