Spanish Beer?

The Golden Lion at Stonea Tel: 01354 680732 The Golden Lion, Sixteenfoot Bank, Stonea, March PE15 0DU

Traditional fenland pub with a great welcome, real fire and real ales! Find us alongside the Sixteenfoot Bank adjacent to Stonea railway crossing. We have visited Malaga in the South of Spain several times but always failed to find anywhere selling decent beer despite long internet searches. This is hardly surprising as this is wine country. A visit to Torremolinos, just down the road, did yield a Dutch bar called “What Els(e)” selling Orval, Duvel, Palm, Westmalle and a couple of others. This year we stayed at the far eastern end of Torre, at the Carihuela beach end, and here there are several Dutch bars offering small selections of Belgian beers. It was, however, back in the centre of Torre, in the Dutch bar mentioned above that use of my only Flemish phrase, “De rekening alstublieft”, ie “The bill, please”, got the owner chatting and details of a bar down the road with over 100 bottled beers. La Cervezateca doesn’t open until 8pm but is well worth a visit if you are in these parts as it does indeed sell over 100 beers from around the world (60+ bottled beers from Belgium, together with Kwak, Kriek and Cerveza ‘TK’ on draught).
