Do you miss your special beer? Do you hate the spanish beer acid taste? Maybe you can find in Madrid's centre a place were you will find beers from all over the world. It is a cute place, no more than 8 tables, with classical Pub decoration, with all kinds of bottles from all over the world, and it is... More

The menu has a great list of beers from many countries, explaining their composition, taste, alcohol %, etc. I had the Alhambra beer and it was delicious. The bar also has a very good atmosphere of both young and older people. The only down side was that the pasta size was a bit small, but other than that, awesome bar!

Got my first Trappist beer in years here. A tiny place, but full of flavors, where people sitting around like family. Don't be shy go for it and try all the beers.....if you can (because there are more than 100). Cheers, Mayor

La Mayor is situated near the Royal Palace. It is a small, charming bar offering world class beers. We stopped here after our palace tour and ordered large plates of jamon iberico and manchego cheese, and (of course) Belgian ales. I wish Tripadvisor would create a category for bars and pubs because a little gem like this gets lost in... More

Thank you Ben for your opinion on Trip Advisor. We totally agree with you that Trip Advisor should create a category for Bars & Pubs because we cannot compete with restaurants. Let´s see if they consider your proposal. Greetings from Madrid. La Mayor More

If you are in Madrid and love beer and beautiful bars, this is your place. The owner is there almost every day and prepares excellent tapas for you. Great selection of beer and the is a real pleasure to sit there for a long conversation over some excellent beers

On the way home from touring the Palace, we walked by this spot and saw the display window full of bottle caps...AND a Trip Advisor sticker...so, in we went. It's just a pub, but has MANY brews, and lots to look at. if passing, stop in!

Dear Nicure, first of all we would like to thank you for your opinion on trip advisor. Duff beer is definitely a matter of taste but it has a very well known name :-) Regarding our furnishings we must admit that the Spaniard are smaller than the Russians so you might be too tal for our chairs. ;-) Anyway, so...

What a great find. I went here back in the spring and couldn't wait to get back again this fall. The place is all decked out in beer relics that we all wish we had. The servers are wonderful young ladies who KNOW their beer and serve it with a smile in the proper glassware. The barkeep is a fun... More
