A three day event celebrating the really rather excellent beer coming out of Barcelona and the surrounding Catalonia region (we've also done two showcases of Basque breweries and we didn't want anyone to get jealous).
We kick off on Thursday afternoon with a lineup featuring six beers from Garage Beer Co
, who brew some of the most exciting modern hoppy beers in the world right now out of their small unit in Eixample in the centre of Barcelona, supplemented by beers from Edge Brewing
, Nomada and a little teaser from La Pirata…
The lineup will (we hope) then segue into a slighly more hook for a hand, wooden peg for a leg, parrot on the shoulder affair culminating on Saturday 13th in a five beer strong showcase (again supplemented by beers from other Catalan breweries) of beers from Cerveses La Pirata
, from the Catalan town of Suria. Suria is about as far from the sea as Sheffield is, but just as that hasn't stopped them having a Pirate themed brewery, it doesn't stop us having a Pirate themed party. So dress in your finest buccaneer garb, tri-cornered hat, skull and crossbones et al for a night of pirate based fun (with added rum) on Saturday night!
Expect Catalan inspired food on the menu for the duration of the showcase, too!
