Los Muertos Brewing

Bienvenido, loyal reader. Please join Bruce and Mary as they once again explore the Puerto Vallarta Old Town hospitality scene with their first visits to the brand new micro brew pub and pizzaria, Los Muertos Brewing.

001Mary is at the main entrance to Los Muertos Brewing located on the corner of Calles L. Cardenaz y Constitucion.

Los Muertos 002This is what brought us in the first time. We’d walked by this sign many times and didn’t really believe that this lunch offer was legit, but this day we decided to put it to the test.

Los Muertos 001These are today’s micro-brew offerings.

We’re on no particular schedule and Mary is just relaxing, waiting for our beer and food.

Los Muertos 005Across the room you can see the beer tanks and yes that is a Foosball table to the right. They have several flat screen TVs with games on, there is a definite sports bar feel to the place.

Accenting that “Let’s Play” ambience are the tables – this one celebrates Trivial Pursuit…

Los Muertos 016

And this one, the Game of Kings. Looks like Salt lost. BTW, they do actually have game pieces available. Los Muertos 012

We’d been sipping on our very tasty beers, an Amber for me and Blond Ale for Mary (they have pints, here!) when our food arrives. The FFs are ok but my Hawaiian as well as Mary’s Cheese Pizza are muy excelente.  A pint of artesanal crafted beer, FFs and a large slice of Pizza for 50P? This has gotta be one of the best deals in town!

Los Muertos 008Our meseros muy amables have been Juan…

Los Muertos 009And Bernardo. We ask him what’s the deal on this lunch special and he says it is designed to get people back to try a whole Pizza and it is a great promotion because…


It works, here we are again! This time we decide to check out the upper level. The balcony seating wraps around the corner.


Mary is guarding our beers.

005I have a great view from our table.

014This visit, Mary has the Amber and I decide to try the Anillo de Fuego, a Chile beer which is remarkably tasty. And I never thought I’d be doing this to a beer.

010Teresa is preparing our Pancho Villa Pizza with fresh ham, artichokes, mushrooms and drunk onions.

012Now it’s time for the oven.

013The ever-attentive Jorge is our server today. All the servers that we have dealt with speak excellent English.

016Whoa, that is one big Pizza! I dig out my trusty tape measure (you never know when you might need one) and this bad boy measures 17″ across. It is the best Pizza we have ever had in Mexico and among the best ever, anywhere. And, as of this post, we are still eating off it. Bien Hecho, Los Muertos Brewing!

Thanks for visiting, gentle reader. As always Bruce and Mary welcome any and all comentarios. Hasta proximo Domingo!

    What kind of flour are they using? I had to ask…

  2. Bruce - June 23, 2013

    Hahaha, Joe, of course you did! And that gives us an excuse to return soon, to find out if they use the best, General Mills’ high gluten Pizza flour.


  3. Rosemary - June 23, 2013

    wow! we walked past a few times and didn’t go in, will for sure next trip!

  4. Bruce - June 23, 2013

    Hola Rosemary,

    Yes, you should, you really can’t go wrong, especially during happy hour.


  5. mark johnson - June 23, 2013

    wow looks great will have to go next time in PV

  6. Bruce - June 23, 2013

    We highly recommend it, Mark.


  7. Debbie - June 23, 2013

    Is the pizza thin crust or is it thicker? Is thin crust offered? Yours looks great! I’m not a beer drinker, but I see plenty of “drink mixins” at the bar. This place has been getting positive reviews on some of the other PV boards that I follow. Thank you for trying it out. But my anality (is that a word?) comes through in that you ask them to please re-write “cervesa” on their lunch board. LOL

  8. Bruce - June 23, 2013

    Hola Deb,

    Doggone it, we meant to put that in the blog, all pizzas have thin crust only, which is the way we like it, but I know that many enjoy the thick.

    Hahaha, we’ll have to show them how to spell such an important word.


  9. Sandy - June 23, 2013

    Thanks for the update! When we were there in Feb., they only had 2 choices for the in house beer, and didn’t love either.. will try again next year. We have heard that the pizza is excellent!

  10. Bruce - June 24, 2013

    Hola Sandy,

    We had the Blonde, Amber, and Chile beers and had good luck with all three, so hoping you will as well.

    Our pizza was excellent, I only wish they had more custom pizzas w/o goat cheese as we are not a fan. But of course we always have the option of building our own pizza.

    Thanks for reading.


  11. Debbie - June 23, 2013

    Thanks! I prefer the thin crust also. Otherwise, I just end up scrapings all the toppings off of a thick crust. Can’t wait to try it out.

  12. Bruce - June 24, 2013

    We’re in the same Pizza camp, Debbie. 🙂


  13. Tom - June 24, 2013

    Now you’re talkin’. Twenty-five pesos for a pint of craft beer! I’m from Portland (Oregon), where breweries almost outnumber churches, and they all have happy hours. I was fretting a winter of light lagers in PV next year (when we’ll be there) but now I see a salvation. All hail Los Muertos Brewing (and seventeen-inch pizzas)!

  14. Bruce - June 24, 2013

    Hola Tom, always fun to hear from you!

    Yes, dark lagers and great pizza, life is good.

    Dear Bruce and Mary,

    Hello. Just came across your blog, and have been enjoying it. I appreciate not only its informativeness, if that’s a word, but its upbeat tone, as well.

    I spent two weeks in PV in Dec. of 2009, living with una familia y estudiando espanol. I enjoyed it but wondered if I could deal with the H&H (heat and humidity) of the PV summer. Wondering if you all have spent a summer there yet, since moving from Merida, and how you’ve found it.

    Which brings me to another question: How does one start at the beginning of your blog posts? I can see links for recent and related posts, but not how one might access specific months or years.

    Thanks, et que todo les sigua yendo bien.

  16. Bruce - June 30, 2013

    Hola Tay,

    Glad to welcome you aboard and thanks for your kind words.

    Yes, we have been here in PV a little over a year now and we get along fine, the heat is actually less than what we were accustomed to in Merida. Our little flat stays pretty comfortable with just fans in the heat of the summer, but we have friends who complain of the heat quite a bit in the summertime, so perhaps we have gone a little native in that regard.

    Good for you, spending time with the locals, I bet your Spanish is quite a bit better than mine.

    Again, thanks for reading.


  17. Tay - June 30, 2013

    Thanks for getting back to me, Bruce, and thanks for the word on the weather in PV. I’m encouraged to give it a try.

    I did enjoy staying with the family in PV, and it gave my Spanish a shot in the arm, that’s for sure.

    I look forward to your blog from the beginning.

    Congrats on your new grand-child!


  18. Bruce - July 1, 2013

    Thanks Tay!


  19. sandie - October 28, 2013

    We spent many meal times at Los Muertos and we were never disappointed. Can’t wait to return in Jan…mmmmmmm good stuff!!

  20. Bruce - October 28, 2013

    Hola Sandie,

    Yes, when we talk to people about pizza in Old Town, Los Muertos is regarded as the gold standard. Love their lunch specials!

    Thanks for reading.
