What was the inspiration behind your brewery? 

Four years ago, I took a trip with my wife to NY. At one point, my wife went to a mall to buy underwear. As every man knows, you should never accompany a woman to buy underwear. Then I saw a bar serving craft beer and I entered. Knowing almost nothing about craft beers, I ordered a Russian River.At that moment my life changed. I discovered what beer really was. Its flavor, its aromas.When I finished that beer, I decided that I wanted to have my own brewery. Thus began the Barcelona Beer Company.
