Barcelona’s Five Best Craft Beer Bars

Barcelona’s Five Best Craft Beer Bars

Barcelona is a city famous for so much. Its football team has long been regarded as the world’s best, typified by the GOAT that continues to lead them, it is the home of modernist architecture and Gaudi’s infamous cathedral, the Sagrada Familia. Transformed by the 1992 Olympic Games, the Mediterranean city is a hub of tourism, but somewhat surprisingly, it is also an international hub of craft beer, as Caña magazine has revealed in their recent Barcelona craft beer guide.

1. Biercab

A 30-tap craft beer bar that leads the way for this part of Barcelona’s Eixample district to be known as Beerxample, Biercab is ranked third on Rate-Beer’s list of top international beer bars, pulling in kegs from around the world with names like Crooked Stave, Omnipollo, Cantillon and Evil Twin regularly arriving alongside well-regarded local breweries on their revolving beer list.

2. Garage Beer

A stone’s throw from Biercab, Garage Beer is the original brewpub of the well-known brewery who have since expanded to a major facility on the edge of the city. Retaining much of the party atmosphere that made Garage what it is today, the bar is full most nights, with visitors from around the world diving into their world-renowned hazy IPAs.

3. Ale&Hop

Ale&Hop is more then your typical craft beer bar, boasting 10 rotating taps that change on a weekly basis, bringing you the best that international beer has to offer. On top of all that though, the El Born bar is also famous for its vegetarian and vegan menu, which can be washed down with blondes, wheat, stouts, IPAs, and more from some of the world’s leading breweries.

4. Mikkeller Bar Barcelona

At the height of Barcelona’s craft beer revolution, the historic city welcomed the iconic Danish brand with open arms. Here 24 taps, with fresh beers shipped from Mikkeller themselves, keep fans hydrated in a hip space which has a bold orange and blue palette. Its menu is inspired by rustic Catalan cooking, and should assist in keeping some of the stronger beers from going to your head. Expect to find oddities like Spontanpeach and 1000 IPA, as well as selections from Mikkeller friends To Øl, Omnipollo or Warpigs.

5. Kælderkold

The odd name means 'cold basement’ in Danish and the tiny bar was founded upon a desire to bring the spirit of Denmark to La Rambla. One of the city’s most well-established craft beer bars, not only does Kælderkold boast 15 taps, this bar just off Barcelona’s most famous street was a pioneer in creating a menu of beer cocktails.
