While Cervecería Etxeberria in the old town of San Sebastian caters to international and local brews, Pub Drop also features a fiercely local tap and bottle list. Located close to the main shopping district on the pedestrian street Reyes Católicos, this bar has a more younger, modern feel. It’s a great spot to watch some La Liga matches.
The tap list is truly dazzling, meaning it has beers I’ve never heard of with weird and wonderful names. So many beers, so little room in my belly. The sadness comes when this deliciousness can’t be found in America.
Here’s what I got to enjoy:
— Mugalari Pale Ale from Bidassoa Basque Brewery: Has an intense amber color. Mild , but great personality . Barley malt has a soft touch , dark nuances , making clear the nature of the species , with hints of citrus and pine . Floral and fruit aromas.
— Vanilla Black Velvet by La Quince Brewery: Russian Imperial Stout style. Color black with creamy foam color, aromas and flavors of chocolate and vanilla from Madagascar Vanilla.
— Plain Porter by Black Bitch Brewing Co.: Black Bitch Porter is smooth and dark, with a thick dense brown head, roasted malt nose, medium bodied, strong malt up front with lingering coffee and some hops to finish with a low carbonation.
