You might think of wine when you think of Spain, but the truth is that this European country also makes a fair share of beer. In fact, despite having little fame outside of its own borders, some of the most popular Spanish beers are downright delicious. Here are four of Spain’s top beers.
This beer is one of the trendiest of Spain’s lagers, and it’s easy to see why. Brewed in the northwestern region of Galicia, Estrella Galicia is a tasty and versatile beer that’s nice for summer sipping and enjoying with heavier dishes when the weather gets cooler.
Alhambra Reserva 1925
Looking for a more potent beer? Alhambra Reserva 1925 comes from a company based in Granada, whose beautiful Alhambra palace gives its name to the beer. It’s a stronger version of a Bohemian pilsner and works well when paired with food.
This beer comes from the northeastern city of Zaragoza and is a classic pale lager that is loved throughout the country. Perfect for sipping with seafood or outside on a warm evening, Ambar is a Spanish favorite.
Basqueland Beer Project SSD
We would be remiss to not mention a craft beer on the list, and Basqueland Beer Project’s SSD double IPA is my favorite one from Spain. Coming from the northern Basque region, this beer is bursting with citrusy and piney hop flavors that will make your mouth water.
