Best Craft Beer Spots in Barcelona

Known for its sangria and sterling selection of wines, Spain hasn’t typically been considered a craft beer hotspot… until now. Craft beer production in Barcelona is growing at an enormous rate. Pubs, restaurants, bars and breweries devoted to artisanal beer are popping up all over the Catalonian capital. You’ll discover nearly every menu you come across has a section devoted to craft beer or “cervesa artesana”. So, if you’re planning a trip to the city, then fear not. We’ve compiled a list of the best craft beer spots in Barcelona.

1. Barna-Brew

Moving from London to Belgium, Alex discovered the joys of Belgian beer and began toying with the idea of brewing his own. He later moved to Barcelona and began guest brewing Barna-Brew’s range of Moreneta beers, distributing them to local bars in the city. After enjoying much success, he decided to open up his very own bar on the stylish Carrer Parlament in the Sant Antoni neighbourhood. Not only a bar, Barna-Brew now has an industrial-scale brewery where Alex and his team produce a range of Belgian-Catalan inspired brews. 

2. Barcelona Beer Company 

In 2013, founders Carles, Oriol and David began Barcelona’s craft beer revolution. Now, having made their mark on the Catalan capital with their revered range of “honest microbrews”, they welcome the arrival of their first taproom. Located on Carrer Muntaner, the space showcases their latest creations with 10 of the 16 taps dedicated to their own handcrafted beers. 

3. Blacklab Brewhouse 

Opened in 2015, brewers Matt and Jing’s Blacklab Brewhouse signalled the beginning of Barcelona’s craft beer explosion. The brewhouse offers a choice of 14 taps of their own beer, as well as favourites like Claudia (American IPA), Terraplane (porter) and Punto de Rocío (session IPA). And of course, there’s always something new. The spot’s spacious outdoor terrace offers the perfect place to try some new beers and enjoy the city’s long and lazy summer evenings. 

4. La Cervecita 

Considering this cosy craft beer bar boasts over 200 different brews from every corner of the globe, it’s no wonder their motto is “a beer a day keeps the doctor away”. Located in Poblenou, La Cervecita was opened by husband and wife duo Kim and Angie who wanted to share their knowledge and passion for good brewing. They run regular tasting sessions and are always eager to share their latest finds with customers. Be sure to ask for recommendations at the bar and prepare to taste everything from classic Belgian Tripels to Catalan IPAs and sour American wild ales.

5. Garage Beer Co. 

This UK-style brewery is one of Barcelona’s most popular spots for high-quality brews. Opened in 2014, Garage Beer describe themselves first and foremost as a “beer company”. Currently, they produce seven craft beers, including Riba lager, Blacksmith imperial stout and deliciously hoppy Garage IPA. However, they add to their selection by offering a wide range of beers from other brewers too. Their brewery-come-brewpub also serves a great selection of delicious tapas to accompany the beer.
