In their heyday – brewpub

Welly is now not only the coffee capital of the world but making a name for itself with craft beer. Breweries or brewpubs are just popping up everywhere. I love the fact that even if you’re not a beer drinker, they offer spirits, all types of wine,  bubbles and booch.

Anyhoo you know where they are, in upper Cuba. GMB (doh that’s how you remember it) is the sister restaurant of Logan Brown’s. They have created a casual joint with a focus on sticky ribs, juicy burgers and crafted beer.
