Volcano Brewing Company

For many years we operated Witch’s Rock Surf Camp, stoked on the awesome surfing but wishing that Costa Rica had some quality craft beers for everyone to enjoy. By 2011 we were tired of waiting and decided to take matters into our own hands. We started Volcano Brewing Company and became Tamarindo’s pioneer brewer, producing epic craft beer on the beach.

Located beachfront within the surf camp complex, our craft beers are available on tap in both Eat at Joe’s and the El Vaquero Brewpub. We offer growlers so you can enjoy our beer at home, and we can set you up with a simple draft beer system and personal kegs for your house, business, wedding, event, or special occasion

Witch’s Rock Pale Ale

This medium bodied, balanced brew is perfect after a surf session, or to cool you down from your day in the sun. Containing tropical, floral, and citrus undertones, this beer is drinkable and refreshing, with a gravity of 4.5%.

Witch’s Rock Pale Ale

A traditional southern brown ale with a classic malty taste, this brew contains hints of toasted malt, chocolate, caramel and coffee. Perfect for dark beer lovers, with a 5% gravity.

Witch’s Rock Pale Ale

Like the pale ale, but turned up a notch. It still contains the tropical and citrus taste of our pale ale, with a hoppy balance and a 6% gravity. All proceeds from sales of this beer go to the Tamarindo Lifeguard Program.

About the Brew Master:

Nikki Hurren came from the UK to Costa Rica in 2004 to surf, and has worked for Witch’s Rock Surf Camp pretty much since the day he got here. He met his wife, Andrina, in Eat at Joe’s Restaurant “at table #11”. He and his wife now have two beautiful children, Olivia and Ozzie, that are growing up enjoying the Pura Vida Costa Rica culture.

You will easily recognize Niki by his English accent, his contagious personality, and his uniform of knee-high rubber boots, board shorts, and no shirt. Niki loves his family, Costa Rica, Witch’s Rock, surfing, and brewing amazing beer at our local brewery. His knowledge and passion for beer is something amazing. He is truly someone who knows how to lead a happy life!

The Brew Master’s Plan:

Niki plans to brew a hefeweizen and a saison in the near future, to add some delicious variety to your beachfront beer drinking experience.

He also plans on launching a Witch’s Rock surf and beer boat tour. Stay tuned!
