Northern Spain? Completed it mate. ✔️ (good game, will play again.)
Sam + Alex headed out on Sunday afternoon to begin a week of collabs and events in one of our favourite places in the world, Northern Spain.
They started Monday of with a brew with the draw dropping Basquery Bilbao. A cafe/bakery/brewery just next to Bilbao’s river. They lent a hand in cooking up a NEIPA ft. Mosaic, Citra + Sabro! Oh yeah!🍍🥥
The next day they were back at Basquery to present awards to the talented home brewers of Bilbao at #BBEER2020 (and even made it into the local press the next day!) 📰
Wednesday they headed to the mountain to brew with the mighty Laugar Brewery; 100% beautiful people & imperial stout wizards. Here they made a shmexy WCIPA ft. Azzaca + Bru-1 hops! MUCHOS TASTY!🌲
After, they ran over to Bihotz Café to takeover the taps and, my oh my, what a partay! NO WE DIDN’T DO TEQUILA + BIG HOUSE WALTZ BOMBS?… That’d be stupid?… ☠️
THURSDAY! They coached over to San Sebastián to take over the taps of the infamous Bar Desy with the LEGENDARY Gorka! (What. A. Dude.)🕴💚(They also went to a local Cidery and revsisited our friends and Brew Gross but that was a little blurry… 😬)
The final day was spent at our old pals house Basqueland Brewing making a 6% Gose with Lime, Ginger + Coconut. OOOFT!
What a trip eh? Thank you to every single person who hung out and showed the best hospitality! Seems like there’s not single bad egg in the north of Spain?
It’s been an incredible trip and we are eternally grateful for our friends in this wonderful corner of the world. Gracias Bilbao; eskerrik asko San Sebastián!
