Best Craft Beer in Barcelona - 40 Bars and Taprooms!
There's a craft beer revolution going on in Barcelona! Microbreweries, bars, brewpubs and restaurants serving craft beers are invading the city with the speed of light. If you're a craft beer lover you won't be bored here.
In addition to the bars there are also events on a weekly basis that attract both local and international breweries to town.
Here are our favorite craft beer bars and taprooms:
Bodega Fermin - An old bodega turned into a bar with vermouth, craft beer and tapas. Great atmosphere and the beer selection is on point. A must visit in Barceloneta. C/ Sant Carles 18.
Oma Bistró – A few rotating taps with a good selection of craft beers, bottles and cans too, and then amazing cake of course. Brunch and (craft) beer can be a winner combo! C/ Consell de Cent 227.
Garage Beer Co. – They have two locations: a brewpub in the city center and a brewery in Sant Andreu. Possibly one of the coolest and most international breweries in Barcelona. Keep an eye out for their beer releases at the brewery. C/ Consell de Cent 261.
Homo Sibaris – Somewhat off the beaten path but don’t let that scare you. These guys know what they do. Here you come for the beer, and they have a lot to choose from. Plaça d’Osca 4.
Ale & Hop - Many taps and vegetarian food (!) in the Born. A classic neighbourhood haunt. C/ Basses de Sant Pere 10.
Kaelderkold – Not far from Beer’linale above you can find this bar with plenty of taps and good cocktails, including beer infused ones. If you sit by the bar you will most likely find yourself engaged in a conversation with other thirsty beer lovers. C/ Cardenal Casañas 7.
Napar BCN - This brewpub is tremendously stylish, and the offer on tap is always very interesting. They frequently arrange craft beer events, football nights and have a good food menu. The space is very big and is great for groups. Read more here. Diputació 223.
Barcelona Beer Company Taproom - They make their own beers and recently opened a new, bigger brewery. Their Japanese style beer Nicotto is one of my favourites, with green tea and mandarin peel. Good sandwiches and tapas. Check out their fun art! Muntaner 7.
Olut - The team behind local brewery Nómada has their own bar in Sabadell, a short train ride away from Barcelona. Go here for excellent beers, a great terrace and tasting events on the agenda. C/ Marià Fortuny 17, Sabadell.
Humble Beer - A recent addition to the craft beer scene in Eixample (aka Beerxample). Good selection on tap, a curated selection of bottles and cans and a menu with local flavours such as cheese and cured meat platters. C/ Roselló 185.
La Bona Pinta - Might seem tiny from the outside, but you will be surprised when you go inside and see the big space in the back, and the large selection of bottles and cans in addition to the rotating taps. C/ Diputació 433.
The Pie Shoppe - An old-school bar turned craft beer haven with comfort food such as steak and ale pie and scotch eggs. C/ Pàdua 87.
Barna Brew - A unique brew pub with plenty of atmosphere located in hip Sant Antoni, offering Belgian inspired craft beers and good food. C/ Parlament 45.
Bar La Beata - A hotspot for craft beer in Gràcia, with good rotating taps and bottled can selection. Their IPAgana is worth trying. C/ Jesús 16.
La Piña Bar - Do not let the small size of this bar mislead you! In addition to great craft beers they also serve mind-blowing grilled cheese sandwiches, including a vegan one! This place is one of my favourites in the craft beer scene. C/ de Roser 3.
