Barcelona Beer Festival

Barcelona Beer Festival
Although Spain isn’t among the countries famous for their beer, it does have a decent brewing industry. The Barcelona Beer Festival was created to showcase brewers from all over Spain and to promote local beers.

The Barcelona Beer Festival was founded in 2012 and has since become the meeting point for craft beer lovers from all over the country. The three-day festival is held at the Maritime Museum of Barcelona located inside the Barcelona Royal Shipyard at the Port Vell area of the Port of Barcelona.

One of the main goals of the event is to spread the culture of high quality craft beer by bringing it into the spotlight and helping people discover it. The festival showcases over 300 craft beers from Spain and abroad and is considered a mecca for beer lovers from Spain and neighboring countries.

Like most beer festivals, the Barcelona Beer Festival has a token system. All attendees are required to purchase a festival glass and festival coins. Beer is served only in the festival glass and visitors can only pay in coins. Entrance to the festival is paid, the cost of the ticket includes a festival glass, two coins and a booklet. The booklet features reviews of all beers showcased at the festival.

The Barcelona Beer Festival has a large bar with 60 taps and 300 craft beers. There are volunteers who are always eager to tell visitors all about craft beer and provide recommendations on what beer to sample. Next to the bar there are food stands offering different kinds of dishes to go with beer.

The festival isn’t limited to beer tasting. Its program includes an array of activities for the general public and professionals alike. There are lectures on brewing and craft beer culture, presentations, professional sessions, the Meet the Brewer program featuring the finest brewers from different countries, and more.
