Spain has a flavorful cuisine, beautiful beaches, and lots of wine. Did you know there are amazing Spanish beer options right alongside famous Spanish wines?
If you’re lucky enough to spend some time traveling around Spain, you have to try some Spanish beer brands. However, as with most things, it’s easy to get overwhelmed by the sheer amount of options.
Here are five of our favorite Spanish beers you have to try when you’re there.
1. Estrella Damm
Estrella Damm is one of the most popular and beloved beers in Spain. As the oldest beer brand in Spain, originating in 1876, it’s become a classic all around Spain, but especially in Barcelona.
This brand beer has a rich taste, uses home-produced malt, and is a must try on your Spain vacation.
Here we have another Barcelona-based beer for you to consider. Brewed right in Barcelona, Inedit’s sleek black bottle and rich flavors will make you feel like you’re living a life of luxury.
It has hints of orange, herbs, and licorice with a creamy and smooth flavor. So whether you’re indulging in Barcelona Exclusive Private Tours or you’re passing through on your travels, take the time to order an Inedit beer.
3. La Virgin
Let’s move away from Barcelona for a minute. La Virgin is an amazing craft beer option brewed near Madrid. La Virgin offers a few beer options including a pale lager, a pale ale, and an IPA.
All La Virgin beers have a sweet and fruity taste which fits with a Spanish vacation. You can even visit their brewery for tours, tastings, or beer and food at their restaurant.
4. Cruz Campo Gran Reserva 1904
With a name like this, you know that you’re in for a luxurious treat. Deemed a roasted lager, the Cruz Campo has hints of citrus and florals all wrapped in a delicious malty tasting beer.
5. Rosita Negra
Rosita Negra is another craft beer option for you to consider. What’s special about this brand is their fruity tasting beer. We’re used to hints of citrus in beer, but what about banana and apple?
Rosita Negra says their beer has hints of both along with another hint of molasses. This sounds perfect paired with a good book on the beach or with a nice plate of paella at dinner.
Try and taste these fruits in their honey-colored ale, their brown ale, and their pale ale options.
