From Japan to Ireland, Rosses i Torrades are always searching for the breweries around the world with the best beers. They put on beer tastings and pairings with tapas but if, for instance, you're a cheese and beer addict, then they'll be happy to organise a party tailored specially for you. And ask about their home-brew kits.

L'Espumossa

icon-location-pin L'Antiga Esquerra de l'Eixample

L'Espumossa es un bar, but it's so well-known and revered as a shop that other beer shops are crossing their arms across their chest and giving the ground a little jealous kick. Don't despair, at least the clientele can enjoy the best of both worlds.
