Drinking good beer in Porto
In our recent visit to Porto, we discovered really nice places and good craft beer to enjoy in a beautiful and young city as Porto. In a city, when the wine culture is so ingrained, can be difficult to find good beers, but it wasn’t the case.
We always recommend to eat something if you ara going to drink, so we can start near the city center, As 7 Maravilhas, some taps with craft beer but excellent selection of Portuguese beers on bottles. This is a cosy place, well decorated with nice food. The ambient is quite and the staff is friendly. The food menu is international, they had good toasts and good dishes. Comparing Porto, it’s a bit pricey but the food is wonderful.
After visiting a little bit Porto, is probably a good idea going to Letraria Craft Beer Garden. Managed by Cerveja Letra , relaxing place with a excellent selections of craft beer on 20 taps. Good spot to be relaxed inside of the garden and avoid the hustle of Porto. They also have some good kitchen with food and snacks.
The night is coming, and in Portugal people like have fun. It’s time to go to more beer places. For example, Cervejaria do Carmo. With 12 taps mixed with local beers and popular German beers. Small place with terrace and good staff. After have some local beers in Carmo, we can go to Picaria. Different taps with 2 beers brewed at the same place. Good prices in a non touristic area.
To finish our beer route, we can go, to my opinion, to one of the best beer places in Porto, Catraio Craft Beer Shop , 12 taps with local beers and some internationals too (In my visit I could find some Spanish beers on tap). Also, the bottle menu is awesome, with different beers for everyone, like Lambics, Imperial Stouts, etc. They have snacks but didn’t check the food.
