Spotlight on… Cerveses La Pirata Brewery (Part 1)

This blog is still in its early days, so I’m still playing around with formats and content. This blog is the first of a series of bitesized blogs focusing on a Barcelona based brewery, Cerveses La Pirata! Which, by the way, is a fantastic name for a brewery! I’m very excited to get to try some craft offerings from a bit further afield, credit to Beer Central for stocking such a eclectic selection!

I managed to get my hands on a selection of 4 beers, and the first one I tried was Eau D’Houblon which is a collaboration with DouGall’s.

I particularly like the bottle design for this one, even if it is a tad disturbing!

The pour was extremely lively, making me slightly concerned it would be over carbonated but it turned out just right.

This beer struck me as almost a Brut Pale Ale, with it being quite fizzy and very dry. This isn’t a bad thing though, as it is tremendously drinkable and very light. Slightly hoppy and just a tiny bit bitter right at the end. Can imagine it would go down very nicely on a nice warm evening by the sea!

Overall I would give this a solid 3.5/5, nice easy drinker that has a good depth and lasting impression.

Tune in to part 2 for a look at more beers from Cerveses La Pirata!
