Meanwhile, here we have a brief introduction to beer in Spain to make your mouth water.
Beer in Spain
Beer is probably one of the oldest drinks that humanity has produced. The ancient Egyptians already made this drink and even had festivals in which beer played a key role. Its production spread throughout the world over the years and today there are few countries that do not have at least one national beer.
Of course Spain is not the exception as it is one of the most popular drinks. In fact in, here we have several breweries that stand out for their quality and variety. Estrella de Galicia, Alhambra, Cruzcampo, Estrella Damm, Ambar, San Miguel and of course Mahou from Madrid. These are the most famous Spanish industrial beers but there are also other lesser known ones that we would like to recommend.
At WabiHost we like to always recommend the best local food and drinks. So if you visit Madrid, do not miss out on a cold Mahou in summer. We especially like Mahou Maestra, which is a toasted lager. However, if you prefer not to drink alcohol for whatever reason, we recommend you try the Mahou 0.0 Tostada that is delicious. It’s got good body and great taste.
But since we also want you to try something special, we would like you to try La Virgen. It is a beer made in Madrid, relatively young but that already has a very interesting range of beers. You can taste them as well as some delicious dishes in El Callejón de la Virgen in Malasaña.
