Best Spanish Beer?

Fri Mar 19, 2004 5:59 am

I'm just curious to what you guys consider to be the best spanish beer? I picked up half a dozen San Miguel's today (It's the only spanish beer that i found here in the swedish state owned 'System Bolaget'). I'll save them for a party on saturday...really looking forward to tasting them!  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

Well, San Miguel isn't my favorite...

I prefer:

Estrella Damm-



Ambar-




But it quite difficult to find them outside Spain... (in fact is difficult to find Estrella outside Catalunya, and Ambar outside Zaragoza-Teruel region...)

Interesting fact about Ambar is that lot of people prefer it, just because is the only really spanish beer (La Zaragozana S.A.), all other brands belongs to foreing companies.

Enjoy those San Miguel's anyway  Smile

Best Spanish Beer?

Mahou 5 Estrellas (bottled), without a doubt.

I really don't understand why so many people, specially English people on holiday in Spain, always order San Miguel. It's terrible!

Easy,

They read about Earnest Hemmingway.

San Miguel was apparently one of his favorites.
