!Important update! On the 2nd floor , far to the end of the store, neighbouring the english bar, there is a deli. This deli have about 30 to 40 beers for sale, that are NOT in the supermarket in the basement. The bottles are micros from mallorca, spain and a few selected goodies from germany,belgium,england etc. So now You need to check out two places when in el corte ingles.
Beware, there are two el corte ingles stores in Palma, and only one of them have a large selection of foreign beer. Directions : out of the train station, watching the plaza from the train station, walk left, down the big road, for about 500 metres, then the store is on your left.
To get to the beer, go to the basement and the supermarket in there. This supermarket has the largest selection of foreign beer i’ve seen in mallorca. Probably also the largest selection of local beer. Also has about 5 ciders. (not much, really). These ciders rotate from time to time. They had lots of german, some british, some belgian and a few bottles from about 20 different countries, and loads of spanish, some of which can only be found in el corte ingles. prices are cheap, about 1 to 2 euros each 33cl bottle for foreign, and less than 1 euro for local beer. i found 52 beers and ciders i never have rated, lots german and some spanish, was charged 67 euros for them.

To Pinball’s excellent description (see below) I can only add that it took me 5-6 minutes to walk from the railway and bus station in Palma to the basement of the store. When inside the megastore at the ground floor there are signs showing the way to the supermercados. You’ll find two beer shelves, one for Spanish and one for foreign beers. The Spanish section consists mostly of different beers from the macro breweries, so this is great for tickers. However, I also found more interesting beers from breweries like La Cibeles, Sagra, Montmira, and Tyris. Look around the wine area as there might be special offers also for beers. I stayed in Port de Soller within a 40 minutes bus trip to Palma de Mallorca (visited 09.07.2013).
