Never been to Madrid, but Barcelona is awash with great bars and bottle shops, or at least it was pre-Covid.


Both cities have plenty of beer places. My favourites in 2018 were La Rovira in Barcelona and Be Hoppy in Madrid.

My favourite places are around “Barrio de las Letras”

  • Be Hoppy (Bottleshop). Ask for Lambic.
  • Peninsula Centro. A new place, associated with the local Brewery “Peninsula”
  • Brew Wild Pizza Bar. Associated with the local brewery “La Quince”. Tasty pizzas also.
  • Fogg Birras & Cheese.

Out of this route you also have plenty of options, being my favourites:

  • The Stuyck Co. (Malasaña District)
  • La Osita. Associated with local brewery “Oso Brew Co.”

Thanks! Super handy guide.

For Madrid I would recommend this taproom

A bit outside the city center, but realy nice 10 taps and deliciouse spanish food.
