Barcelona & Spanish Beer

beerIf you enjoy the tangy dryness of Euro lagers check out the newly arrived Estrella from Spain. A shade earthier than my favourite Germans, but equally refreshing after a hard day on your blackberry.

Estrella Lager, Spain 113183 500ml/$2.25

Estrella is brewed in Barcelona where I took this photo of my hand while having fun at the wonderful Xampanyet tapas bar at 22 Montcada in the Born district. As we were leaving an American tourist asked “Is there a party happening in there?” Not a bad observation.

I highly recommend Barcelona’s Born district (around the church of Sta. Maria del Mar) …backstreets, cafés and all the little discoveries that make old cities so exciting and romantic. The tiny Cal Pep Restaurant on Placa de les Olives is a must visit. Afterwards meet the locals at Bar Mudanzas at 15 Vidriera.
