craft beers



Barcelona Beer Festival has borned with the aim of spreading the craft beer culture. It does by tasting and also with activities that help to understand this amazing world.

We divided them into three main activities: Lectures attended by several brewers in Europe who will explain their experiences and the situation in the countries of the craft beer revolution has gone before. The meetings - round tables where talk about the current scene from different prisms. And finally guided tastings.

We hope you appreciate it and find yours. Registration soon, stay tuned!
