Beer Events SL is a company founded in 2012 by 4 partners linked to the craft beer industry since the 90s. Originally, Rubén Río, Joan Fiol, Mikel Rius, and Salva Marimón joined forces to organize the ‘Barcelona Beer Festival,’ but progressively, the project has expanded and specialized in managing events related to craft beer at all levels.
The services offered include event production, specialized consulting for sector companies, and specific training—all aimed at spreading our passion for high-quality craft beer.
Our Beer Events team is complemented by Judit Càrtex, director of InnBrew, in the commercial and projects department, and Anna Portavella, responsible for the Barcelona Beer Challenge and production.
Within the framework of the BBF, many very significant things occur at the same time. Sometimes, even for us, it is hard to give everyone a voice as much as we would like. To put a little order to the entire event, we make a distinction between the three main activity areas:
The Barcelona Beer Festival is the origin of this revolution and the most gastro-recreational part of the dissemination of beer culture. We started this in 2012 at the Convent de Sant Agustí and in 2023 will take place the 11th edition of this festival. We estimate that, in total, approximately 3300 artisans have been welcomed and that more than 200,000 people have attended.
InnBrew is an event exclusively for professionals that has been designed to meet the needs of companies specialising in the beer sector. All of the organisation’s activities have been grouped together under this name in order to maximise opportunities for the professionals in attendance and make the InnBrew experience as fruitful as possible.
The Barcelona Beer Challenge began in 2015 and is currently consolidated as the main state competition, while at the same time, it has a wide international reach. The main objective is to add value, visibility and recognition to higher quality beers through prestigious awards.
