The brewery that makes the best beer in all of Madrid. How do they do it? It´s a secret. It was one of the Tertullian’s in the 19th century that has become one of the undisputed beer bars of the capital. What they do tell us is the technical perfection to have the beer: moisten the glass to achieve the perfect temperature, tilt the glass 45 degrees from the tap spout, open the tap and allow the beer to fall to the wall of the glass and of course allow it to rest a few seconds until the foam disappears.
Although it is well known that the mature public frequents this local spot that’s over 200 years old, each time it is more common to see the terraces of San Bárbara with young people trying “the best beer in Madrid”, especially at the place they have in Alonso Martínez thanks to the offer The verbena of Santa Bárbara with beers at one euro. The mouth to mouth has always worked in Santa Bárbara.
