Beer Abroad: Tribulosi (Taull, Spain)

In the small mountain town of Taüll in the Spanish Pyrenees a quaint beer bar can be found. Nestled in amongst a stonewall and other shops, Tribulosi Cerveseria Gastrnomicia provides an extensive list of Belgian beers.

Tribulosi is located right along the main road that takes you into Taüll. A large flag with a beer on it helps you spot it and by night the sign glows bright as a way to lure you in for a tasty beer.

Walking in, wooden stools line the bar top with their symbol printed on each stool. The symbol is a T with the face of the Christ pantrocrator that was once vibrantly painted in the Sant Climent de Taüll and can now only be fully seen during the video projection- see post.

A large T supports the three taps and a fridge full of bottled beers makes the decision process a difficult one. The large wooden covered menus list the bottled beers with their country of origin, style, and a short description. There is no English menu but if you know some Spanish you can get that version of the menu (normally it is in Catalan). Or you can blindly choose based off of the style- I do not think you will be disappointed!

On my first visit while I was scoping the menu, I saw them making a Siren Shattered Dream Imperial Stout chocolate ice cream float which made my mouth salivate. Filling full I chose to resist ordering it but noted it for a possible dessert at home 😀

The inside is nice and cozy but we sat out on the terrace. The weather was cool at night but I bundled up with my scarf and sweater. From the terrace you have a perfect view of Sant Climent and the WHOLE town 🙂 By night the church glows in the distance with a silhouette mountain backdrop.

The word Tribulosi is a Catalan word that does not translate to English. The best I can conclude is that it means an energetic setting.

Even in the small town of Taüll I was able to find good craft beer! 😀
