The Beer Scene in Catalonia

Surrounding the Mediterranean, there is an abundance of wine and spirits and a passion for the history and terroir associated with them. Reds, whites, rosés, sparkling, still, sipping cocktails, pastis, absinthes… and the list could go on. The one player that doesn’t usually make its way onto the list  in these regions is beer. Beer can now be found nearly everywhere in the world so why does the Mediterranean not have their own classic style? There are many reasons as to why this might be the case, but more importantly is that the lack of a great beer scene and style will soon be a thing of the past. With this unclaimed product available to any who will take it, the Catalan region has tested the waters and is now trailblazing their way to owning this piece of what will become history.
