Estrella Galicia

We've teamed up with Estrella Galicia to host six incredible dinners throughout 2019 that celebrate the fantastic gastronomy of Spain. Take a look at where they'll be, what's on the menu and why this Spanish beer is the perfect partner to good food.

It's no secret that good beer and good food can work together in perfect harmony. When it comes to Spanish food, it makes sense that a Spanish beer is well-suited to drink alongside it. That's why we're thrilled to be hosting a series of dinners with Estrella Galicia, Spain's largest independent brewery.

Originally founded in 1906 in the small city of A Coruña in northwest Spain, it remains a family-owned operation and still brews all its beer in the city thanks to the quality of the local water, so it tastes just as good as it always has. Throughout the year we'll be putting together a series of one-off dinners across the UK showcasing the incredible regional food of Spain with a roster of top-quality chefs. Kicking things off in London, we'll then be heading to Brighton, Cardiff, Glasgow and Liverpool, plus another location yet to be announced.

Read on for more information about our previous events, and keep your eyes peeled for details on the rest of these exclusive dinners.

11 September 2019: Pilgrim, Liverpool

Our third Estrella Galicia event took place at Pilgrim, a very special restaurant in Liverpool which takes inspiration from the pilgrimage routes of Europe. The one-off dinner paired Estrella Galicia's beers with dishes from throughout Spain, beginning in Asturias and ending in Galicia.
