Bars and pubs for craft beer in Barcelona

Cerveza Barcelona - Beer Barcelona - Bière Barcelone

Craft beer is fashionable. The craft brewing is present in countless bars and pubs in the city of Barcelona and is acquiring a role that borders the one that plays industrial beer. This is due to the glaring inequalities between the two beers. The main ingredients in any beer are barley, water, hops and yeast, the difference lies in the treatment of  materials and the manufacturing process.

Craft beer uses no artificial additives or preservatives, and in its manufacturing process it does’nt use filtration or pasteurization for the beer to keep all its properties. There are two types of producers of craft beer, craft brewers and microbreweries. The first do all the development process manually, from grinding the malt to bottle the beer, while the microbreweries have more material and equipment, such as pumps or filters and do not do all the process homemade. In both cases beer is associated with bar or pub, unlike industrial beer that is associated to the brand.
