Fàbrica Moritz Barcelona - Drinking in a nineteenth century Brewery


We visited a beautiful brewery in Barcelona. The people behind Moritz Brewery decided to take their passion for beer further than a simple sundown drink with olives. They decided to create a unique experience in a place of its own, by producing their own Moritz beer on-site in their microbrewery and giving visitors the opportunity to experience and taste the beer themselves.

Craft beer gives customers more option and better taste. But Barcelona’s Moritz craft brewery has decided to go one step further than that, impressive beer alone is not enough. The original nineteenth century brewery has been restored and renovated by French architect Jean Nouvel. Copper brewing tanks are on show inside glass display cases beside domed, dimpled stone roofs, illuminated by a lighting system that’s been specially designed in order to pick up on the beautiful contrast between materials. On the outside, climbing plants cascade up and over the walls, while there’s a 25 metre-long tin bar inside for you to put your feet up if all that architecture – or let’s be honest here, beer – goes to your head.
