Beer Abroad: BierCaB (Barcelona, Spain)

Though avoiding Estrella while in Barcelona is highly unlikely, luckily, there are a decent amount of places to find craft beer in Barcelona with BierCaB being a great choice. With a large number of both draft and bottled beers, a good selection of food, and a cool vibe, BierCaB is definitely a place to visit.

BierCaB is located in the eixample district. With the awesome metro, I never felt like anything was too far. Just make sure you pay attention to when the metro stops at night! 🙂 The bar is pretty neat with a unique decor of wood kindling across the ceiling. The bar top was very cool looking with an angled base but honestly, a little awkward to sit at with long legs!

The beers on draft were displayed up on the screen with beer type, brewery, and country of brewery with a corresponding number for making it easier to order in spanish 🙂 Also, while I was sitting there having a look around I noticed my picture come up on the screen. At first, I thought I was seeing things but then I noticed that it was the tweets coming through on the screen which was pretty cool 😀

As it was around dinner time, at least my dinner time (not necessarily Spanish dinner time!), I decided to take a look at the menu. This place is definitely on the pricier side for both beer and food. However, they had a burger for 5.50 euros that looked pretty tasty. It was the poblenou burger with pork (yes, a real hamburger!), Havarti cheese, fried onion, and bacon. It was very delicious and hit the spot! The housemade nachos and bravas also looked good for a decent price.

Overall, this was a great spot for drinking craft beer in Barcelona! They had an english menu available which was handed to me after they heard my crappy spanish! lol With a tight budget as a handicap, I did not stay here for more than a couple beers but I enjoyed finding another good beer spot 🙂 Next time I am in Barcelona I will definitely visit again.
