If you are a beer lover, this is your moment. We kick off the season of the best festivals for craft beer lovers across Europe.
Paris, the capital of love, has become one of the ideal destinations to enjoy your passion. From June 1 to 10, the PARIS BEER WEEK, is the first festival dedicated exclusively to craft beer, where the main protagonists of the French scene meet, as well as distinguished international breweries; in a week full of events, contests and many surprises.
This year it celebrates its 5th edition, organized by the non-profit association Bières et Papilles, a group of volunteers, which includes independent professionals, craft beer lovers and local associations. Whose main objective is to help the development of the Craft Beer movement in France and Europe, as well as to share the gastronomic and cultural impact that this movement brings to the scene.
This association has been a precursor to the renewal of the “Parisian craft beer movement”, organizing all kinds of events related to the world of craft beer throughout the year. These events are known as: “Soirées Maltées” and bring together a dozen Brewers carefully selected for the quality and originality of their products. Attendees have the opportunity to meet the brewmasters personally and take note of their experiences.
With the presence of more than 75 national and international breweries, Paris Beer Week becomes, in short, the best option for the weekend. As Frederich Chopin said, "Paris responds to everything the heart desires" and in this case, to everything the heart of any beer lover was waiting for.
For Spain, we will have the participation of the breweries Garage and La Pirata, both from our much-loved Barcelona. La Pirata was with us at Brewtal Box #1. We are very excited to see them expanding abroad, and to know that like many others, they have trusted us to be part of our great little initiative, bringing the "Craft Beer" experience directly to their doorstep in Spain.
Our friends from “Time Out France”, prepared a detailed calendar of each of the activities to be carried out during the festival. You can consult it directly here. Our favorite is “Running for Beer”, a 10K around Paris, with a mandatory stop at 6 of the most important craft beer bars in the area. Registration is free and includes a complimentary beer at each stop.
Follow our social networks and our blog, next week we will continue talking about more festivals.
