Spain’s evolving craft beer scene: supping ale at Madrid’s La Osita Pub



I discuss the growing craft beer scene in Spain with David Ross and Patrick Tuck at their new Madrid pub La Osita. (The little bear)

David and Patrick are craft ale brewers, pub owners, friends and business partners. I head along to meet them at their newly-opened craft beer pub in the heart of Madrid.

We talk about about the growing popularity of craft beer in Spain, how the scene compares with the UK and USA and what Spaniards make of this new flavoursome arrival competing with Spain’s more traditional beers.

I sample a pint (or three) of one of their own house beers, ‘Citrus Cream Ale’ which the pair brew at their sister brewery ‘Oso Brew Co.’ and Patrick talks me through the craft brewing process and how they develop their ales.

WHAT IS WHEN IN SPAIN?

The When in Spain show is a weekly podcast show, recorded in Madrid (and other parts of Spain) where l talk about my ‘warts and all’ observations and insights on life and culture on the Iberian peninsular.

I cast an eye on everyday life, people, places, politics, culture and history and attempt to give an honest opinion from a Brit who has a love-frustration relationship with Spain. I shall attempt to dispel or indeed confirm Spanish stereotypes through my ramblings and see if I can delve into the Spanish psyche.
