And yes, you know: the main protagonist of the festival is … beer! To do this, the space that makes up the Barcelona Beer Festival stretches along a huge bar with more than fifty taps of beer (it really is like being in a dream of Homer Simpson …).

Best of all is that not talking about just any beer or typical reed ate at a bar … the Barcelona Beer Festival is a tribute to the artisan beer and more than 300 types of beer.

300 different beers are rotated on taps (ie, not all are available simultaneously). Yes, quieter than to situate and know what we drink there are information panels that will explain what beer is being served in each beer tap.


For the second consecutive year, the Barcelona Beer Festival will take place in Drassanes, specifically in the Maritime Museum, a place that greatly improves the previous scenario, located at the top of Las Arenas.

While the above scenario was kind of clear and rather dark, cold room, the current scenario the Maritime Museum gives an even more pleasant atmosphere Brewer event.
