Moritz is a brand of beer originally created in Barcelona in 1856. It was started by Louis Moritz. For many years the brand of beer went by the wayside but in 2004 it was relaunched. In 2011 the old brewery re-opened with a new and updated look though the beer remains as it was when it was first introduced. The beer brand is the only one whose labels are written in Catalan.
The beer factory is located in its original location at La Ronda de San Antonio in Barcelona. The factory now serves not only as a brewery but also a gastro brewery. The architecture is authentic with lots of exposed brick, vintage Moritz ads and posters and some neon lights to brighten things up. The space is made up of a few different areas such as a dining area, bar area and even a magazine shop that also sells some baked goods and other Moritz products. in which our escorted tours would be more than happy to bring you to.
Zeis and I had been hearing so much about the Moritz Beer Factory that on our visit to Barcelona this summer, we decided to have our daily cervecita here one afternoon. I had never heard of the brand before but Zeis obviously had. The building is unassuming My never ending curiosity for design immediately had its fix upon entering the Moritz Beer Factory. We had a great afternoon enjoying a few beer varieties. One of the best things about this place is that it is a unique travel spot located right in the heart of the city. Unfortunately Moritz beer isn’t sold in the US…I guess that means another trip to Barcelona, Spain very soon.
