The Catalan Microbrewery movement

The other day I walked into a shop in Barcelona and saw literally dozens of (mainly Catalan) microbrews from around the Spanish peninsula. It was great, and reminded me that this blog was designed to be about promoting the growing brew culture in a land where beer is all-too-often overlooked. But from the time we started this blog to now we have witnessed the explosion, and dramatic increase in selection and quality throughout the region. It's slowly catching on in other places as well, but a recent trip around Spain showed me that the revolution is still widely overlooked. But I see no signs of a slow down in the process here. If anything, it's growing faster than ever. Tonight we have a beer tasting featuring one of the most promising microbrew-meisters at The Drunk Monk. Should be a good time!
