Es difícil no enamorarse de uno de los lemas de esta cervecería madrileña: “la cerveza es libertad”. Con esta máxima, que quien más quien menos ha sentido en sus carnes alguna vez en la vida, presentan una carta de cervezas interminable, repleta de referencias sorprendentes. Porque antes de entrar a El Sainete conviene tener claro que en su carta no tienen vino. Nada. Solo cerveza y agua, y muchas ganas de hacer pedagogía sobre un brebaje que ha decidido al fin reivindicar el lugar que se merece.

El chef Fran Vicente, ex concursante de Top Chef y curtido en los fogones de Coque, es el encargado de elaborar una carta pensada para maridar con las mejores cervezas del mercado internacional. Y lo hace sin temor a nada ni a nadie, pero con mucho respeto. Espumas, gelatinas, ingredientes de aquí y de allá y mucho rock’n roll es lo que vamos a encontrar en una carta que incluye desde un bao hasta unos callos, pasando por un ceviche o una picanha. Es perfecta para compartir, y está pensada hasta el milímetro para maridar con un surtido de cervezas que se encuentra entre los más completos de Madrid. Nada menos que unas 150 referencias en botella y 22 grifos forman la oferta de un establecimiento que presume de tener la cerveza perfecta incluso para todos aquellos a quienes no les gusta.

INSIDER tip

La súper gilda de bonito en escabeche merece por sí sola una visita al local.

    Como siempre, servicio y comida de 10. El Sainete siempre está a la altura. Eso sí...sigo reclamando la vuelta a la carta de la supergilda de escabeche y el postre de chocolate y galleta.
