Join us on this ultimate craft beer experience where you will not only taste your way through the best local beers from Pale Ale to Imperial Stout but above all be the witness of ongoing Basque beer revolution!
WHAT TO EXPECT
Start the evening out at one of the most unique spaces in San Sebastian that brings a Basque bar, a modern restaurant and a brewery together. We will taste here three different home-made beers and visit closed for public elaboration area where you will discover the best kept secrets of beer making process.
Next, we will stroll down the streets of the relaxed surfing district Gros to finally reach our next stop – the mecca for true beer connoisseurs! This tiny, family-run bar has been open for over thirty years and is the only place in San Sebastian where you can try the best local and imported artisan beers & lambics carefully chosen by Gorka – beer freak and a proud owner in one! You will sample some of his recommendations accompanied by a delicious hot pintxo.
The third bar is a new addition to San Sebastian’s craft beer scene but the initiative behind it dates back to 2014 when couple of American expats decided to challenge Basque breweries with their west coast-style pales and IPAs. That’s right! One of the most recognizable Spanish brewery in the European craft community was founded by Americans! You will taste three of their flagship beers including: Pale Ale, Session IPA and IPA.
We will continue along Zurriola beach to round out our evening at ‘sea and wind’ flavored bar that has around 150 beers on their menu including the owner’s brews. It is a simple, minimalistic space always filled with a hip clientele. You will enjoy four carefully selected beers paired with some local selection of cheese & ham, 100% Basque beef burger and chocolate!
