Reconnecting with Jaime and The Best Beer in Spain
Brabante Cervesas is the best beer in
Spain. I’m biased because my friend and classmate at Fuqua, Jaime, helped found this company that brings premium Belgian style beers brewed for Spanish palates to market. Brabante Cervesas’ portfolio includes the ever present pilsner (but in lighter, mire refreshing and refined form), a wheat beer, a double brun, a double blonde, and a triple. Jaime took us to dinner where were able to sample the full monty of Brabante beers. The beers were all smooth & refreshing and held good flavor across the respective styles.
Jaime remarked that it seems as though little time has passed since our 2006 graduation each time he connects with a fellow classmate. I agree with him. We had pleasant dinner conversation where Jaime indulged us by answering our questions about Spain. We further were treated to some exquisite mixed gin and tonics that were careful balances between specific gins paired with specific tonic and accompanying accoutrements (pomelo rind, rose bloom, and cinnamon stick) at L’exquis
