Estrella Galicia: September is Gastronomy Month


Following a sell-out success in 2021, premium Spanish beer brand Estrella Galicia is bringing its Gastronomy Month back this September for an even bigger and better second year. 

The month-long exploration of Spanish gastronomy will be celebrated in locations across the UK and Ireland at over 90 of the nation’s best loved Spanish pubs, bars and restaurants.

This year, consumers will be able to book an even wider variety of unique experiences to suit all budgets and occasions, including Tapas Tours, intimate masterclasses and exclusive tasting menus. Other offerings include Estrella Galicia’s ‘Beer and a Bite’ initiative, whereby diners at select venues can visit at any time to enjoy an Estrella Galicia beer perfectly paired with a delicious tapas dish for an equally delicious price.

An exciting Beer Masterclass will be taking place at Piggs, Edinburgh, on 1st September, offering guests the chance to sit down to a guided Beer Tasting hosted by Estrella Galicia Brand Ambassador Miles Ley and owner of Piggs, Daniel Campos. Attendees will learn about the story, inspirations and flavours from four Estrella Galicia beers whilst enjoying each with perfectly paired tapas, for just £30.
