Taste of Spain

Tapas, Alaro Craft Brewery

Sacramento’s heat makes small, shareable bites much more appetizing than a heavy full meal. Alaro Craft Brewery has a fantastic tapas menu including traditional Spanish dishes such as Papas Bravas ($8) and Croquetas de Jamón ($9). The Papas Bravas is a surprisingly large serving of crispy chopped potatoes nestled atop a spicy tomato sauce and drizzled with creamy aioli. The Croquetas are fried in seasoned bread crumbs with a smooth, melt-in-your-mouth harmony of creamy dough and ham on the inside. Take yourself on a trip to Southern Spain for some classic tapas without even straying from Capitol Avenue. 2004 Capitol Ave., alarobrewing.com.
