Over the past year all around the world the demand for home crafted and special crafted beer has been increasing rapidly. Of course Barcelona could not stay behind and many beer lovers started to create places where people can enjoy amazing craft beer in Barcelona with delicious tapas and other food. Below you will find a selection of 10 bars of which I think they should be on your list to visit while you are in Barcelona.
As it is the first craft beer bar I stumbled on to I must say that this is my favorite place to enjoy a good craft beer in Barcelona. As I walked into this bar I directly noticed the cool designed ceiling which is covered in wooden sticks. The bar offers 30 beers on tap which can be found on a screen which can change per day. Besides the 30 beers on tap the bar also offers another book with bottled beers which can be more expensive than bottles of champagne. Also Biercab has an amazing food menu. The last time when visiting the bar we ended up ordering up to 12 tapas dishes for 4 people. I would definitely recommend the IPA beers ( they are amazing )
Location: Calle Muntaner, 55, 08011 Barcelona
Belchica offers a wide range of Belgian beers for a fair price as most beers will set you back about 2 to 5 euro’s. Belchica is loved by Belgians, locals and tourists. I would recommend visiting Belchica with some friends to watch a football game or enjoy open mic and rock concerts. This is the place to be for Belgian craft beer in Barcelona as I even heard Belgian visitors saying that the quality and taste was amazing. One of my favorites here is the IPA PUNK.
location: Carrer de Villarroel, 60, 08011 Barcelona
BrewDog offers an amazing atmosphere inside the bar. With some amazing drawing on the walls and an amazing selection of craft beers. The staff in brew dog knows what they are doing and can help you with choosing the right beer for you as for first timers this can sometimes take quite a while. If even their assistance won’t convince you to chose a beer there is always the option to take the 5 taster glasses at the bar.
location: Carrer de Casanova, 69, 08011 Barcelona
La cerveteca is perfect to stop for a quick beer or if you want to chose a nice beer to enjoy at home. The bar offers a wide range of bottled beers from all over. One of the downsides of the bar is that they do not offer any real food BUT of course they have TAPAS!
Location: Carrer d’en Gignàs, 25, 08002 Barcelona
NaparBcn offers more than just beer, NaparBcn offers a wide range of craft beers, amazing food and also an incredible atmosphere as the bar is decorated beautifully. The decoration in the bar is modern with an authentic brewery touch as in the bar you can see the actual brewing process going on. I would really recommend taking some friends here or maybe even a date if you want to impress her with your knowledge of craft beer.

Ale & hop as said above is located in El Borne, the bar offers a small area in the front where guests can enjoy some beers while standing at the bar or in front of the bar in the street. Further in the back of the bar there is another area where you can sit if you also want to enjoy some diner in combination with your beer. During after-work hours the bar is usually crowded as students and professionals come here to relax.
