Mucho gusto, BrewDog: Craft beer movement reaches Spain with launch of BrewDog Barcelona
Maverick brewery opens its first bar in Spain with launch of BrewDog Barcelona.
- BrewDog, Scotland’s largest independent brewery claimed another milestone in the craft beer revolution today with the launch of BrewDog Barcelona.
- BrewDog’s first Spanish site is also the first bar to be launched by the maverick brewery this year, bringing the total bar count to 26.
- Located at Carrer de Casanova 69, Barcelona, the bar serves as a testament to the global advancement of the craft beer movement.
- BrewDog Barcelona is located in a former bank building, and the bulletproof glass showcase serves as a vestige to the building’s prior use.
- The bar has capacity for 100 people and will serve 20 beers on tap.
- As is traditional in every BrewDog bar, the brewery will give a nod to its host city, serving a selection of craft beers from Barcelona and the rest of Spain, as well as renowned breweries from around the world.
- Regular “Meet the Brewer” events will also be held in the bar, allowing customers the chance to meet some of the most exciting and forward-thinking brewers in Spain and the rest of the world.
BrewDog co-founder James Watt commented:
“Barcelona needs no introduction. Its reputation as a cultural epicentre precedes it. It’s vibrant, it’s artistic, it’s experimental, it’s proud, it’s unapologetic, it’s BrewDog. From Gaudi to Messi, Barcelona is a city of rule-breaking and record setting and this perfectly encapsulates the BrewDog ethos.
“The demand for craft beer in Spain has been growing year on year, and our exports to the country also reflect this trend. We have listened to the fans and set up our first outpost in the Iberian Peninsula.”
James Watt continued:
“The craft beer revolution cannot be contained by borders or language. Wherever there is a thirst for difference, wherever there is the eschewing of mainstream substandard beer, wherever there is an upswell in the belief that beer can be more than what is plastered on billboards, the craft beer revolution will thrive. Everywhere from Brazil to Sweden, from Italy to Japan, and now in Barcelona, Spain, we have shown the revolution will not, and cannot, be stopped.”
