Meet your guide at Bilbao Metro Station (line 1 or 4) in central Madrid to embark on your fun-filled journey through the world of Spanish craft beer. Up until the early 20th century, beer held less popularity in Spain compared to other parts of Europe. The country has since come a long way, producing several mass market beers, such as San Miguel and Mahou, that are popular throughout Spain and abroad.
The act of brewing may be as old as the wheel, but beer consumption has been mostly limited to industrial breweries, not only in Spain, but around the world. Not anymore! This tour will show you how Spain's adeptness at beer brewing matches its winemaking skill.
