Real Ale. in Quesada.

Real Ale. in Quesada.

Postby Nikon » Fri Aug 16, 2019 7:51 am

Does anyone actually sell real ale on draught ( or is there a local real ale brewer ) near by I have never seen or heard of a local brewer near Quesada. I guess its a expensive start up and probably. tax implications. also does the heat have some bearing on this idea of selling real ale in a Hot part of spain but there is a lot of men and women who would like a glass of real ale for a change so perhaps the idea of a Pin is not a bad idea. yes a PIN is 4 gallon barrel. is suspect anything bigger would be a issue. and as with cast the shelf life once opened is 3/4 days in uk climate so all these issue have to be taken into account you could have a ice pack around the barrel but should be served cooler not ice cold sometimes with this issue in the uk the beer is served via a python and is to bloody cold and takes all the taste out of the beer not good practice and also the pull of the pint is way to long there can be at least 4 pints in the line not good the shorter the better and kept cool I am sure some bars would relish this beer and some of the ex pat would like a real pint of beer in there local you only need a small place to brew beer but must be a clean place one concern is WATER in spain bottle water is not ideal maybe that's a problem but the big brewers like Estrella Damm. don't have this problem maybe they have well on site. would be intersting to find out if they do.

I’m sure it was mentioned on here recently about a bar on the row where Jolly’s is, is now brewing their own beers. I can’t find the thread now though.

Regarding the Dog and Firkin, and the mini brewery near Jolly’s, do they brew bitters and ales or just the usual lagers?

Morning All,

Appreciate it’s not in draught but the Breeze Bar in Benimar sells “Spitfire” in bottles.

Have a good one :-)

A friend and I researched this a couple of years ago when thinking of setting up a brewery in, probably, El Raso. It was fun as we visited several Spanish and German breweries not least to understand any issues they had and the supply chain for necessary ingredients (we also tasted many beers). Then, by pure chance, I came across a real ale in a bar at La Finca; the bar has since closed. This led me to Another Planet Brewing in Torre Pacheco - Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/AnotherPlanetB ... KGUm2Sqaav or website https://anotherplanetbrewing.com/- and several meetings with its founder / brewer. This is the only 'British' real ale brewery on the Costa Blanca. Its nearest 2 outlets are the Dog & Firkin already mentioned and Illy's in Villa Martin. Visits can be arranged for Tuesday afternoons and bottled beer bought. I have spoken several times about supplying a Quesada bar but production capacity has to increase for this to take place. Hope this helps your quest.

Thanks for your reply so in essence it’s a non starter and the investment wouldn’t be worth it and it’s a big gamble to get it to the beer pump people want cheap beer and good which you can’t blame them , so John smiths smoooth is the answer or Guinness. There is also greene king in kegs , I expect the tax on brewing beer would be quite high , maybe one day some one will try this and set up a working brewery and a few months ago a guy did this in France it really taken of and he has little or no experience in brewing but it was a success , there is micro breweries for sale at some good prices but the cost of buying pins or cask it all adds up and would it work also buying the bottles and filling them well it’s a issue to look into perhaps one day

There's the "Amber Brewery", (I think it's called) overlooking the sea in Torrevieja, which I've passed but not yet partaken, but I have enjoyed a glass of IPA at 'De Bassus', at la Zenia. The only other, locally, which I'm aware of is in Catral - already mentioned. Just to rub it in a bit, I'm on a long weekend back in Brum, making up for my Real Ale.
