Madrid, Spain

Hey all,
I am a US homebrewer who has recently moved to Madrid, Spain with the military. I want to keep brewing, but I can't find a local source for ingredients. Some online US homebrew shops will ship to my APO box, but the postage is outrageous. It also seems silly to order a European-made product that's been shipped to the US only to have it shipped back to Spain.

Are there any members out there who can offer advice on buying local in Madrid or shipping within Europe?

Thanks,
Radome

I just typed "Home brew stores in Spain?" into Google and this was the 2nd link: http://www.the-online-homebrew-company.co.uk/index.php granted I know NOTHING about these people but I think Google will provide faster results...

Well I'm stationed in Germany and I feel your pain. The shipping can be outrageous. If you plan ahead and are willing to wait a while you can opt to do parcel post instead of priority. I know of a few shops here in Germany and one in Belgium but the prices in euro and the selection just doesn't compare. FYI Midwest has mil discount as well as hop tech.

Two possibilities, both in Spanish
first one near Madrid:
http://www.cervezasdelmundo.com/pages/index/informacion
second in Bcn:
http://www.masmalta.com/153-materias-primas

I don't know anything about them. I just moved to Spain, and I haven't brewed here yet

Cheers!

I know this is an old thread but if you have problems with a company shipping international there are many people who are willing to buy it local and ship it abroad for a small fee. This doesn't get around the outrageous international shipping and VAT fees, but if you are looking for something not in your market there are always options.

I can't believe it, here at the other side of the world, castle malts are cheaper than in Spain.

Well those to site are the most expensive.

You should try cerberus or cal arenys or cervesa artesana. I never get my supplies from them.

For APO addresses only USPS ships cheap. When I was in England I would ship to my friends and have them take it to the post office. Shipping to APO from the states is the cost to New York. After that military planes take it, for free.
