Barcelona Beer Spots - La Cerveteca

Perhaps the best located and easiest to find, La Cerveteca is one of the original beer bars in Barcelona. Located next to the Correos building in the old city, its small and ever-lively atmosphere is complemented nicely by the knowledgeable bar staff and a nice selection of beers. On tap they usually have 4 or 5, and at least one local brewer. The lack of seating is not as big a problem as it might seem initially as there is ample table space and it's very easy to forget about the time as you sample the fine selection of ales.

The prime location within walking distance of almost all the sites in the old city and I would recommend stopping at one of the local tapas bars or crossing the street to the happening Born district for dinner after tempering the summer heat and a hard day's sightseeing with a well-served ale.

I thought it was nice there. Good selection of beers. But the service was not super. There were only one person that seemed to want to help us. The other ones ignored us. Maybe they dont like tourists.

You should check out bar SF in the Raval. Its owned by a californian guy, and usually has a lot of American craft beers on tap. Should be opening up soon after summer vacation.

I love this spot. And while the service might not be hop-to American style I like it. Friendly but relaxed. I wrote it up for BCN Mes in case you wanna read: http://www.bcnmes.com/shortlist/la-cervecita-cerveceria-barcelona/
Cheers! Beers!
