Spanish term or phrase: setas plancha y un tubo de cruzcampo
This one is from a menu (supposedly from Andalusia). I´m not quite sure what cruzcampo might mean, neither have I ever tried setas plancha. Anyone from Spain? Thanks in advance.

Explanation:
Our dear colleague got right down to the point. I would even venture further to say that Spanish brewing tradition is not at all too strong (to put it mildly) and I wouldn´t recommend you ths one. :-))

grilled wild mushrooms


Explanation:
Cruzcampo is a make of beer from Seville in the south of Spain (a light bee, very similar to lager).
A tubo is the measure - a third of a litre where as a caña is a fifth of a litre.
The mushrooms are normally just grilled sprinkled with olive oil and garlic.
Good luck. This should get the appetite going. :-))

grilled wild mushrooms; small glass of Cruzcampo beer


Explanation:
setas are *wild* mushrooms (as opposed to champiñones--the cultivated ones).

Cruzcampo is a brand of beer--from Andalusia. A *tubo* is a synonym for a caña--the small-sized glass you order in a tapas bar.

Cruzcampo beer is excellent!


Explanation:
Cruzcampo beer has been produced since I remember (at least 50 years) and now it is owned by some German brewers, which means the brewing of Cruzcampo complies now with the standards of the most experienced brewers in the world. I would definitely recommend you this one as well as San Miguel, a SPANISH beer exported all over Europe.

tubo = less than a quarter pint


Explanation:
Honest, this size is very small. I've had beer in this size glass. It looks like a fruit juice glass. The idea is that you order a small glass of beer and an order of tapas, you swig down your beer, gobble your tapas, and start all over again, probably in a different tapas bar. Here is a price list from a Spanish bar, to give you an idea of the range of prices. N.B. A "jarra" = approx. a half pint:

... de 15 a 24 años, según la hora. Tubo 225 ptas, cubata 500 ptas, jarra cerveza 325 ptas, litro cerveza 600 ptas. Los puntos del plano indican la presencia de ...
