The craft beer fairs you shouldn't miss in Madrid
With the first measures of spring, craft beer fairs spread throughout the Community of Madrid. The beer phenomenon, which in recent years has taken root in the capital, directs its heavy artillery to these events. Beyond the local breweries, Madrid is a meeting point for the entire peninsula.

This summer's lineup brings together 52 brewers; of which 8 are foreign brands: Kozel, De Molen, Mean Sardine, North Brewing, Oedipus, Pilsner Urquell, BrewDog and Founders Brewing. In addition, it will have a bar where only Madrid beers will be played.. Beermad It integrates live music, food stalls and workshops related to craft beer.
A week before, from June 1 to 3, we discovered the San Sebastián de los Reyes Craft Beer Fair. The La Marina Fairground also hosts Foodtrucks and concerts. Spanish craft beer is the protagonist of the event.
It coincides in dates, on June 1 and 2, theFounders Madrid Beer & amp; Music fest. The festival will take place at the Conde Duque cultural center in Madrid. The organization boasts of bringing together more than 40 breweries from around the world at its taps, apart from Founders brand references. It will also have Foodtrucks and live music bands.
If we look back, we find theUFO Fest organized by Cervezas Yria at the premises of the Compañía Cervecera Valle del Kahs, whose factory and taproom is located in Vallecas. Beers from Europe and the USA welcomed a maximum capacity of one hundred people.
In terms of the thematic weeks, we have theArtesana Week de Lavapiés, which in its fourth edition twinned 31 Madrid brewers, 12 of them with 29 stores in the Lavapiés neighborhood. Cervecera Independiente, the new business unit of the Mahou San Miguel group, also organizes thea Madrid Beer Week, in which the participating venues propose a series of activities around craft beer.
Although Madrid is not short of fairs and festivals, the capital still cannot find a benchmark such asBarcelona Beer Festival, organized by Beer Events and Install Beer. Little by little, certain events consolidate and improve their offer in consecutive editions. The future is promising for the Madrid craft beer scene.
