“If you love beer, this is THE place to go in the gothic quarter”
Reviewed 8 March 2014

Love beer ? Tired being offered a choice between Estrella and Estrella (or Estrella and other insipid lagers) ? Missing dark beers ?

If the answers to these questions are yes, yes and yes, this is the bar to go to. Grungy but amiable, with a vast variety of beers on the offer. Gentleman manning the bar was even kind of enough to offer a taste of the two beers on tap which looked tempting to me (a porter and a strong and dark fruity Belgian, which I both had, and were great).

“A beer bar in wine country”
Reviewed 26 November 2013

Wandered into La Cerveteca after dinner to check it out, since I like beer. A nice place that seems to be just getting established as a beer bar. They have about 9 beers on tap, a few craft brews, but mostly European. They also have a couple glass door coolers with bottle beer to buy and try, either on site in a clean glass, or to take home. The bottle beers are all craft brew type beers, with a big selection of Rogue Ales, a couple Italian craft beers, a few German beers. The prices on the bottle beers were pretty high, but then again where are you going to find some craft beer in Spain? Draft beer seemed a little more reasonably priced, and is probably much fresher.

The small crowd was mostly gathered in the well lighted front area hovering around the barrel tables and the beer bar. There happened to be a pair of musicians with a guitar and a bongo drum making some nice noise, that added to local feel of the place. A cool place for a beer, I'm sure it will improve with time, and their ability to source good craft beer from around the world and maybe someday in Spain.

“This place has the best beer”
Reviewed 13 October 2013

I have never tasted that kind of beer before but it has a sweet taste and it;s really light and cool. I loved it while walking in the city.

“Better Average”
Reviewed 18 August 2013

Nice selection of beers, normal prices, kind bartender, small toilete, crowded by locals and turists (but we still got the table as the others prefer to stand by the bar). There was nothing about this place I particularly liked or disliked and so if you want to try some interesting beers, go there.

Reviewed 9 August 2013

Convenient location to the Barri Gotic and the waterfront area, this craft beer location is excellent. Many styles to choose from and so so good! Great atmosphere too!
