La Farga Centre d'Activitats
Mar 16 - Mar 18

A Party for Beer Fanatics

The Barcelona Beer Festival has become the meeting point for the entire beer craft sector of the country. There is a large bar with more than 100 handles where more than 450 national and international beers are served. It is the best festival of its kind held in Spain.

The festival works with a glass and coins that can be purchased at the sale points. The beer will only be served in the glass provided at the festival and will only be changed with the coins. The entrance includes a glass, a guide and the first two tokens.

You are sure to find some beer that you like!

Who Organises the Festival?

The festival is organised by the Association for the Culture of Beer Craft (ACCA) who aim to promote this marvellous drink and its culture. It is an non-profit organisation based in Barcelona. Around 80% of craft beer in Spain is produced in Catalonia.

If this is not enough for you, the festival has more than just drinks! There is quality food, activities, live music and above all, an unforgettable atmosphere. Fancy it?

Barcelona Beer Challenge

This is a international contest celebrated at the Beer Festival. In the latest edition, there was a competition with more than 750 beers from 17 different countries. The festival manages to generate and competitive and international environment which represents the current beer scene, which has not gone unnoticed by the national and international media.

Where is Barcelona Beer Festival 2018?

Last year, the location of the festival of beer changed to La Farga Centre d’Activitats in Hospitalet de Llobregat and the organisation decided to stay here for the 2018 edition. It is easy to get to by taking the metro using the Red Line (L1) or the Blue Line (L5) to the Rambla Just Oliveras stop. You can also get there by bus or taxi.

Germany follows with 106 litres per person, just above Austria with 105 litres. In Spain, the average per citizen is only 47 litres. Out of the European countries, they are only just ahead of Sweden, Portugal, Greece, France and Italy.
