La tortilla, una opción súper saludable!

Tortilla de patatas, una opción sabrosa para cuidar la piel y la visión

Una porción de tortilla de patata aporta 400 kilocalorías. Este sabroso tentempié ofrece múltiples beneficios para la salud, ya que uno de sus principales ingredientes, el huevo, además de ser una gran fuente de proteínas, que se encuentran principalmente en la clara, contiene Vitamina A y E en la yema, que son perfectas para mantener la piel cuidada y tener una buena salud ocular, además de beneficiar al sistema inmune y proteger a las células del estrés oxidativo. La Vitamina D que aportan los huevos contribuye a la absorción del calcio manteniendo fuertes los huesos y los dientes, por ello consumirlo se recomienda especialmente a niños, ancianos y a las mujeres en menopausia.

Por su parte, la patata es perfecta como fuente de energía gracias a los carbohidratos y el potasio que contiene, además no aporta apenas sodio, por lo que si no añadimos mucha sal en la elaboración de la tortilla este rico plato es también apto para aquellas personas con problemas de tensión elevada. Por otra parte, las patatas no contienen gluten, siendo una deliciosa opción para los menús de los celiacos.

A Cornish craft brewer is selling the highest-rated beers in England today based on reviews from beer drinkers.

Specialist beer ratings website Untappd acts as a TripAdvisor for beers, allowing drinkers to rate and share their favourite brews.

A list of the top 20 rated brewers, based on those with more than 10,000 reviews on the site, ranked Verdant brewery in Falmouth as the best in the country.

The brewery, which was only launched in 2014, specialises in hoppy pale ales, IPAs and double IPAs and they’re known for their eye-catching cans.

This week it was announced that the brewery has won a £20,000 investment fund from London-based wholesaler and retailer HonestBrew to expand their production capacity.

They’re also investing in a new canning line and are recruiting an extra brewer to enable them to more than double their brew capacity to up to 8,000 litres a week.

CRAFT BEER: Nueva NEIPA en barril / Oppigårds New Sweden IPA /

Acabamos de pinchar a otra de las grandes: Oppigårds New Sweden IPA. Ven a probarla a nuestro local de Calle Cava Baja, 42.
Os dejamos una review de Mundo Birruno:


Si había una cervecera sueca de las grandes que aún no había pasado por el blog esa era Oppigårds, que ha entrado por la puerta grande con la New Sweden IPA de hoy. Creo que con ésta tenemos ya el panorama sueco bastante cubierto.


Los de Hedemora, ante el aluvión de cervezas New England IPA que nos están llegando, se han pegado la vacilada de bautizar su cerveza con el nombre de New Sweden IPA, al más puro thug life style.

Elaborada con los lúpulos Chinook, Mosaic, Ekuanot, Citra y Simcoe. Turbia, de color amarillento y carbonatación perfecta, sin irse de madre.


Al olfato es un festival del cítrico. Colosal. En boca la cosa es aún mejor. La sensación es como de beberse un zumo de lúpulo. Muy intensa, sedosa en paladar, con sabores que nos recuerdan al zumo de naranja, la mandarina, el pomelo, la piel de naranja y el mango. Me ha parecido deliciosa y es un gran comienzo para un idilio amorosobirruno con esta cervecera. 6,2%. La compré una noche en L’Artesanal después de cenar. La vi en la nevera, la cogí y les dije: “apuntádmela en la cuenta”. Si queréis emular mi experiencia gastrobirruna que sepáis que la han vuelto a traer y está fresquísima.

Queremos celebrar el cervezón que tuvimos a la venta en nuestro Pez Tortilla de La Latina estas semanas, con una review muy buena de nuestros amigos de :

Tree House Beer Company Julius

Print Shelf Talker


What the brewers say

“Bursting with pungent American hops, Julius is bright and juicy, filled with flavors and aromas of mango, peach, passion fruit, and a mélange of citrus juice. It has a soft, pillowy mouthfeel and rounded bitterness.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Peaches, oranges, mango, passion fruit, tangerine, grapefruit, and even a touch of pine—it’s a punch in the nose with a fruit cart. I think I consumed a serving of fruit just through the aroma.”

Flavor: “Peach and pine carry through from the aroma and are augmented by some dank-ish notes. Some moderate malt sweetness is there, but the emphasis remains ever on the hops goodness. Pleasant bitterness backs up the ensemble and delivers its own tangerine-like notes as it washes down the throat.”

Overall: “A big citrus/tropical fruit bomb with enough malt sweetness to temper the bitterness. A beautiful IPA, both visually and on the palate. I can almost picture someone cramming hops into the bottle or can. A wonderful use of hops that doesn’t try to get too fancy with anything else and just delivers an amazing hops-forward beer.”


CRAFT BEER: Galaxy Dry Hopped Fort Point Pale Ale!

CRAFT BEER: Galaxy Dry Hopped Fort Point Pale Ale!

Hace unos días nos hemos hecho con unas cuantas latas de Galaxy Dry Hopped Fort Point Pale Ale y su “prima” la Double Dry Hopped Fort Point de Trillium Brewing, una joya de craft beer!. Para que os hagáis una idea de la maravilla de cerveza que es, os dejamos una review de nuestros amigos de –> Ven a probarla al PEZ TORTILLA de la C/ Cava Baja, 42 – 28005 Madrid

January 15, 2017
Over the past couple of years, New England has propelled itself into the upper echelon of the craft beer world. This surge is due in large part to a specific style of beer, the India Pale Ale. In fact, the phrase “New England-style IPA” has become synonymous with unfiltered, hazy beers that assault the palate with fruitful, tropical, and juicy flavors. This style of beer has turned a nation of casual beer drinks into fervent and zealous hop-heads, eagerly anticipating the next big New England IPA to hit the market, the way Apple groupies wait for each iteration of the iPhone.

One could make the case that this all started with the Alchemist’s Heady Topper DIPA, but I would make the case that two breweries in particular really put this style of beer on the radar of American beer drinkers, Tree House and Trillium.

Located in a neighborhood of South Boston from which the titular beer takes its name, Fort Point, it is the city slicker to Tree House’s country kid. Trillium Brewing Company was founded back in March of 2013 by the husband and wife duo, JC and Esther Tetreault. The beers brewed at Trillium represent a feeling of love and passion the Tetreault’s have for their community, which is apparent in the quality of their offerings as well as the names they give to their beers. So many of their beers are named after actual streets or places in the city of Boston, paying homage to the support the community has give to the Trillium Brewery. Most would agree: it sure is easy to support a local brewery when they are putting out spectacular beers like their Galaxy Dry Hopped Fort Point Pale Ale.
Trillium’s pale ale has several different varieties including regular Fort Point Pale Ale, Double Dry Hopped Fort Point, Mosaic Dry Hopped Fort Point, etc. Their Galaxy Dry Hopped Fort Point Pale Ale (which will hereby be referred to as GDH FPPA) is a version of their base Fort Point Pale Ale that is dry hopped with Galaxy. Dry hopping is the equivalent of Emeril Lagasse taking a bit of a spice and doing the whole “BAM!” bit. It’s a extra dose of what gives the beer its fruity and tropical flavor thrown in towards the end of the brewing process.

GDH FPPA, per Trillium’s website, comes in at 6.6% ABV, uses American 2-row Barley, White Wheat, C-15, Dextrine malts, and contains Galaxy and Columbus hops. If that doesn’t mean anything to you, then I don’t what to tell ya.

Anyway, this beer comes in 16 fl oz. cans which was a recent change from the massive bottles the beer used to come in. This has been a welcomed change by many (me) as they are now more conducive to taking into the shower and packing into your golf bag. Pouring the beer into their arch rival Tree House’s glass results in a series of chemically-induced flashes of eternal hellfi… a completely opaque, deep orange looking beer. It’s like grapefruit juice in the glass. There is about half a finger of head on the pour as well. You care about this for some reason.

The aromatics of GDH FPPA are Jamba Juice in nature. There is a lot of orange, mango, and pineapple scents tickling the nostrils. When you’re recreating this tasting with guests or a loved one, just say things like “tropical aromas” and “emitting from the glass” and “why are you leaving so soon?”.

All kidding aside, this is, in my opinion, the best pale ale I’ve ever had. The beer is perfect. It is full bodied, even for a pale ale, and has a smooth, creamy mouthfeel. To the casual beer drinker (or any beer drinker who was just handed a glass of this), it feels like an IPA. Melodic notes of mango and other citrus flavors excite the taste buds. Basically, it tastes like it smells: FREAKING DELISH! The finish is dry, but it leaves you with a quick, hoppy, herbaceous bon voyage, like a kiss from a loved one as they embark on an open-ended journey, reminding you of what will make the wait worth it. Trillium’s GDH FPPA is simply one of the best. It’s the type of beer you share with friends in order to suck them into craft beer fandom.
