We have fully embrace the craft beer revolution here at In Your Pocket, and you should to. The focus on quality over quantity has made beer a better drink all across the world, and Málaga is no exception. There is a great selection of craft beer bars in the city offering brews from the city, the region, the country and the world, from session ales all the way to sour beers that will make you pull faces you didn’t think you could pull.
With a rotating crew of eight craft beers on tap and fridges full of brews from all around the world, La Madriguera is a mandatory stop on a tour of beer in Málaga. You also get a free plate of crisps, serrano and bread with your beer, which should also be mandatory everywhere on the planet. The menu covers both the healthy and the hearty, but it is the beer that keeps us coming back for more.
Don’t expect craft beer to be as cheap as bog-standard lager, but do expect it to taste a thousand times better. Arte & Sana Craft Beer Café has an elite selection of craft beers from around the world on its menu and a down to earth atmosphere in which to drink them, with a much sought after window seat that is perfect for people-watching on Plaza de la Merced.
Craft beer bars can often be a little identikit, but why does that matter when the beers are this good? Central Beers focuses on beer over aesthetics and is all the better for it, with the best of Andalusia’s craft beer scene together under one roof. This is also a great place to check out live sport, or just have a good old chinwag about the future of craft beer in this part of the world.
We’re all for puns when it comes to naming bars and restaurants. We’re also all for great craft beer, if you weren’t aware. Saying that, we do love our staff to be friendly and our interior to be intriguing, not afraid of the unorthodox and bordering on wacky. Hop Scotch ticks all of these boxes, with local and international beers available in bottle and on tap.
If you aren’t sure where to find us in Málaga, the magnificent Recyclo Bike Cafe is your best bet. This is true no matter the time of day, as the coffee in here is as refreshing as the craft beer is crisp, the service as friendly as the interior is intriguing, the breakfast as nourishing as the dinner is fulfilling. With a keen eye on sustainability and the wellness of our planet, Recyclo Bike Cafe is everything we want a culinary, craft and caffeine establishment to be. And bikes, don’t forget the bikes.
