About Fàbrica Moritz Barcelona…
The Fàbrica Moritz Barcelona started off when Alsatian Louis Moritz came to Barcelona to create his own beer in. He soon became one of Barcelona’s most important producers. His beer created such an impact that beer demand rapidly increased, as well as Moritz beer’s prestige, which made him open the Moritz brewery in 1897. In the years following Moritz’s death in 1920, his heirs created the Moritz Beer Factory, the beer’s reputation was strengthened, and by 1933 the company controlled 34% of the Catalan market. In spite of the beer’s success for decades, the 1970s gas crisis directly affected the Moritz Factory, forcing its shut down in 1978. However, the family had ever since been planning to re-open the factory, and they finally did in 2004. From this moment on the Moritz beer is back on track and is once again considered Barcelona’s beer, strongly connected to the city for both its production and the cultural activities that the beer has encouraged. Nowadays the Moritz Factory is restored into a meeting point for Barcelona’s citizens. The factory is not only a place where they produce freshly made beer, but it’s also a socio-cultural space where gastronomy plays an important role in the different activities directed to the citizens of Barcelona.
