Until a few days ago, I had never heard of Madri lager and I don’t think I was the only one. But all of a sudden, the new beer seems to be everywhere. So what is Madri lager and could it be your new favourite pint?
So where did the Madri Lager hype come from?
A perfectly valid question. And, until this week, you’d be forgiven for having never heard of the stuff. But after the LadBible tweeted out their appreciation for the lager, Madri has taken social media by storm.
The LadBible weren’t the first to catch onto the Madri hype though. Back in early April, a punter at Aintree races captured the moment that fellow racegoers opted for the fashionable new lager over the more traditional Carling in their masses.
Is Madri the new Birra Morretti?
Although brewed in the U.K., Madri tries to capture “The Soul of Madrid”, according to the British Beer Guild. But does it hold a candle to the other top lagers in the U.K.?
According to some, Madri Lager may even be the new Birra Moretti. However, it definitely depends on who you ask.
These Twitter users couldn’t get enough:
However, not everyone was as complimentary about Madri Lager…
Where you can get your hands on some
Although it may seem like a new craze, Madri lager has actually been available on draft since October 2020. As a result, it’s actually pretty widely available – meaning you won’t have to search far and wide to get your hands on it.
This year saw the introduction of Madri Lager in retailers, and you should be able to find it in most major supermarkets. Maybe this time next year it might have replaced your current favourite at your local!
Here’s our top tip, if you show up to predrinks or a house party this weekend with a crate of Madri under your arm, it’s bound to get people talking! If Twitter’s anything to go by, that is.
Have you tried Madri Lager yet? Reckon it’s a tad overrated or that it’s soon going to be the king of UK lager?
