Where to Drink Craft Beer in Barcelona

This blog post was originally posted on October 2, 2014 and was updated on September 7, 2017.

Craft beer in Barcelona is something that has been, for many years, sidelined next to popular local brews like Estrella or Moritz.

Not to say these beers aren’t tasty served in a crisp caña on a hot summer day, but sometimes you’re in the mood for something a little more elaborate. The craft beer culture in Barcelona has grown substantially in recent years, and nowadays you can enjoy regional and international brews all over the city. Check out some of our picks for places to drink craft beer in Barcelona.

Grab a cold one! Here's where to find the best craft beer in Barcelona.


The people at Ale&Hop know what’s good. One of the first bars of its kind to open up in the Born neighborhood, they have a wide variety to satisfy your ale and hops needs, as well as delicious snacks and tapas plates that are very vegetarian friendly. They also do weekend brunch and a Thursday night happy hour with 1 euro pintxos, to boot. Happy hour isn’t something we always see in non-tourist-trap bars, so get on it!

Address: Carrer de les Basses de Sant Pere, 10

Ale&Hop is one of the best places to drink craft beer in Barcelona. Their inexpensive yet delicious pintxos are the icing on the cake!
Pintxos AND beer? You’ve convinced us!


Joining the ranks of its kind just this year, Chiuvos is not only dedicated to supplying the neighbors of Gràcia with an excellent variety of craft beer, but also offering up a simple menu of delicious “slow food” a la Americana. Homemade barbecue sauce a top their pulled pork sandwiches has all their new customers craving for more.

Address: Carrer Torrent de l’Olla, 175

Chiuvos is a great place to drink craft beer in Barcelona while enjoying a home cooked meal.
There’s no combination quite like the classic burger and beer!

Homo Sibaris

Many would argue that the neighborhood of Sants is quickly becoming a new haven for foamy treats. One of the most popular bars that locals frequent is Homo Sibaris, a cozy tavern that serves up some great craft beer on tap, including one from nearby municipality Hospitalet de Llobregat.

Address: Plaça d’Osca, 3

Cervecería Jazz

Find lots of delicious local beers at this lovely little tavern that moves to the beat of Chet Baker. On a small street in the Poble Sec neighborhood, at Cervecería Jazz you can also pair your beer with one of their gourmet burgers or sandwiches.

Address: Carrer Margarit, 43

La Més Petita

Not contrary to its name (“the Smallest”), La Més Petita is a tiny bar in the Eixample district that knows how to do a lot with just a little. They do a great job selecting craft beers on their eight taps. The exceptional service will make you feel right at home. Cozy up to the bar and get to know the people behind it—they’re sure to charm you!

Address: Carrer de la Diputació, 30

Right at the bar is the perfect place to drink craft beer in Barcelona!
Drink like a local: grab a front-row seat right at the bar!

    We just got back from the Barcelona Beer Festival .which was interesting.
    The third time my girlfriend and I have been to.
    We managed to obtain a Barcelona craft beer map. Yellow in colour.
    Which is very helpful but now out of date.
    We quite liked the Cat Bar serving Vegan food
    We were told about another beer festival in Barcelona in June which is served by the brewery staff.
