Located in the neighbourhood where are most of the beer spots in Madrid. They seemed to have quite a lot Spanish micros on their list but not all of them available. Well, there was still enough for me. And would be enough for couple of more visits. I liked the interior which was kind of a mix of German Bierstube and American pub. Would definitely visit again when in Madrid.
I specifically sought out this place to try a new country, Andorra, and got there just before closing. The bartender said they don’t have the beer when I asked by country, then by brewer and he tried to push other stuff one me. Finally he found one. Kind of a strange experience. I couldn’t tell if he didn’t want to sell it or if he really didn’t know what he had. I tried a Spanish beer after that which was very disappointing. They have a large selection but I found little of interest beyond the new country tick.Lots of common UK beers on offer too.

Good selection, great food. Recently focusing on craft beers. A must in Madrid.
Updated Jan 2013: long time since our last visit, have noticed several changes in theír beer portfolio. New european and american craft beers addedd, also some spanish ones. Good for them!.
Update April 2015:
A beer visit to Madrid is not complete without L´Europe. Classical place, excellent and friendly service, as always.
German type place with very good (even great) selection of Spanish beers. The best at the time, maybe not so objective, but both Animal and Estribo were closed. Let’s say a bit pricey, 0,33 beers were 4.20€ and big bottles even more than 10€...Of course, you get some snacks with the drinks...all in all, worth a visit....
2 visit 4 months later; still good selection- but pretty much the same as my previous visit to Madrid + 5-7 new ones. Still quite good, but not as it used to..
Wifi availbale, very well worth a visit
