About Spanish Beer

About Spanish Beer
Beer in Spain lags far behind wine in terms of production and what is brewed is often acceptable beer from one of a handful of commercial breweries.

Specialty beers do exist, but licensing technicalities have kept this industry down. What is produced is of very good to excellent quality, examples include amber lagers, bocks and pale ales.
