Full description
For some years now, beer making has been a powerful trend in San Sebastián. Learn about the city’s beer culture as you taste 10 or more local craft beers paired with local food. Walk to local bars and discover the best-kept secrets of the beer-making process. Start the evening out at one of the most unique spaces in San Sebastián that combines a Basque bar, modern restaurant, and brewery. Taste three different homemade beers and visit the closed-to-public elaboration area to learn insider secrets behind beer making. Next, stroll down the streets of the relaxed surfing district, Gros, to reach the next stop: a small, family-run bar that has been open for over thirty years. This is the only place in San Sebastián where you can try the best local and imported artisan beers and lambics. Sample recommendations are carefully chosen by Gorka, beer freak and the family-run bar’s proud owner. Enjoy your drinks alongside hot pintxo. Then, head to the third bar on the agenda. Though this bar is a new addition to the city’s craft beer scene, the initiative behind it dates back to 2014 when a couple of American expats decided to challenge Basque breweries with their West Coast style pales and India pale ales (IPAs). Discover one of the most recognizable Spanish breweries in the European craft community that was founded by Americans. Taste three of their flagship beers including pale ale, session IPA, and IPA. Continue along Zurriola Beach to round out your evening at the “sea and wind” flavored bar that has around 150 beers on their menu including the owner’s own brews. Enjoy this simple, minimalistic space that’s always filled with a hip clientele. Finish your tour with tasting four carefully selected beers paired with local selections of cheese and ham, a 100% Basque beef burger, and chocolate.
