From the fermenter tanks straight to the bar
La Fabrica it’s an industrial style space: brick walls and elements of metal finishing evoke a stylish cellar. The tables and wine racks are created from steal pipes, the tap handles are large electrical throw switches.

It is here that the gold is produced, then pumped into straight in to the bar tabs.

From "El Dictador", the original beer that bears his artistic name, thought "Las Americas" that stands out for its aroma or the "Capunga", a lager-like beer, refreshing, tasty and one of the best sellers here in La Fabrica. Or the latest creation, "The Transporter", is a dark beer that comes to break paradigms.
The place has been praised by many clients - Denver tourist comments: “We regularly visit Panama City and take at least one drive out the Amador Causeway to view the city. As we approached I noticed a very shiny copper brewing conical tank serving as a sign for a brewery and eating establishment. There was a large "we're open" sign so we pulled in and asked if they served food. It was a bit early so we were the only people there and they served us quickly with the best 'pub food' I've ever had. Vegetarian burger, bruschetta, schnitelitos. The owner gave us a tour of the brewing area which is top notch. He couldn't have been nicer and we couldn't have been more impressed with everything. You have to see the "barracuda"...we'll let that be a surprise. Ask about it”.
