The Cervecería Naturbier is almost always one of my stopping-off points when going for a night out to Plaza Santa Ana and Calle Huertas. It is in the heart of Plaza Santa Ana and features probably the only microbrewery in Madrid – the beer includes a light cloudy lager and a dark Viennese beer. In fact, you can actually view the large vats towards the back of the pub.
You can also select a great variety of cheeses, cold meats, smoked fish, etc. The downstairs features brickwork vaults where, since July of this year, you can serve your own beers from a tap at your own table (see picture above) – now, that’s cool!! There are also tables outside which look on to the busy Plaza Santa Ana. You may be interested to know that they give guided tours in the morning.
Address: Plaza Santa Ana, 9.
Opening Times: 10 am to 2.30 am.
Metro: Sol and Antón Martín

One thought on “Naturbier – a Micro Brewery in the heart of Madrid”
I was in Madrid three years ago to celebrate a friends 40th birthday and read in a guide book about Naturbier. We visited on our first night for some beers and a sandwich. We also went there on our last night before flying home and had a delicious meal at the restaurant area downstairs.
The “serve your own beer” taps built into the tables are great fun and I have never seen this anywhere else.A board on the wall lets you know how much you have poured and you settle up at the end.
The beer was delicious and the food likewise.The bar is located near the centre of the area where it all happens in Madrid. All the restaurants and bars are open late and the arrangement seems to be- you order, drink then settle up as you leave.
I can recommend a visit to Naturbier.I would certainly go back.
