Mallorca is the perfect island for beer lovers. The power of tourism on the islands has caused a large number of locals to export European beers of the best brands: German, Czech, Belgian... and of course, in Spain we also have high level beers, such as the Galician Star or the Alhambra. In fact, in recent years, the island has been promoting the production of local natural beers. From MLL we tell you which are the best places to drink a beer and which factories are coming out in Mallorca.
The best places to have a beer
MLL has its hotels located in ideal locations for beer lovers. In the Arenal you can find the Mediterranean Bay and Caribbean Bay, and in Playa de Palma, the Palma Bay Club Resort and the Sahara - Nubia - Gobi Bay. Very close to our hotels in the area you will find the famous ham street, where a good number of places are located where you can enjoy the best nightlife and the best German beer, brought in barrels from Germany.
In the ham street you will find the famous Bierkonig, located in the heart of Playa de Palma with a typical German beer garden design. The establishment covers an area of 3800 square meters of leisure with various internal and external terraces. We assure you that space will not be a problem. You can't miss live concerts, live shows and above all football matches when the German national team plays. A few days in which the atmosphere is quite spectacular.
Another of the liveliest places in the area is the macro disco, the Megapark. One of the most spectacular discotheques thanks to its dimensions, animation and atmosphere, which make it the Cathedral of the nightlife in the whole area.
In Megapark you will find a place of big dimensions, but which is always full. If you want to enjoy a cold German beer and the best music, with the best DJ's, you can't miss this spectacular place. It has several rooms with different types of music and a giant 4x14 meters mega television, where you can broadcast what is happening in the discotheque.
In Palma you will find a large number of places where you can enjoy imported beers or handmade beers. One of the most famous places is the Tramuntana Brewery. A craft brewery, where you can taste a beer made by themselves or one of the 200 beers they have on the menu, accompanied by a good tapa.
In the Molinar area you will find the Forastera brewery, where you can taste the home-made beer prepared by Sven, with good body, long drink and creamy foam. At present, 8 very different types of beer are brewed in the brewery. From blond to black, toasted or wheat beers. A delight on the palate.
One of the fashionable breweries in Palma is Lorien, where you will find a huge variety of imported and handmade beers. Probably in this place there are beers you've never tasted before. On tap or in bottle, there are about 200 beers to try, including the large number of Belgian beers that we can find.
In addition to these premises, the Beer Palma beer fair is held in Palma once a year, usually between the end of May and the beginning of April. Located in the Ses Voltes area, in front of the Cathedral, this beer fair brings together more than 70 varieties of beer from all over the world.
In addition, the famous Oktoberfest, the German beer festival, is also held in Palma de Mallorca in October. Oktoberfest is a well-established celebration in the German town of Munich. A big tent opens in Palma, with long tables and typical German atmosphere, where you can enjoy the best German beer, the Paulaner, and its typical music with live concerts.
Handmade beers made in Mallorca
In Mallorca you can find different types of handmade beer, which are becoming very famous on the island. We've already talked about the Stranger, but there are many more.
Cervesa des Pla is an artisan beer from Algaida, which does not use any additive. Its most famous varieties are Primium Larger and Stout, a dark beer.
One of the most powerful factories in Mallorca is Beer Lovers, located in Alcudia. In Beer Lovers they produce five varieties of beer, all of them handmade. From wheat beer to toasted beer or beer with American yeast. Also famous is the beer of Sóller, Sullerica, with a great peculiarity, this beer is seasoned with orange blossom, typical in Sóller. We advise you to try a rare taste, the Sullerica 1561, a beer made with green olive of Sóller.
Apart from these beers, there are also the Boscana breweries in Sóller, 4 Alqueries in Mancor de la Vall, Talaiòtika, made in Felanitx or Cas Cerveser in Galilea.
