Beneath the avant-garde Moritz Factory Barcelona, recently reformed by the famous architect Jean
Nouvel, hides Spain’s oldest beer factory. A brewery that’s been a witness, and that has often had a leading role in the most important chapters of the city’s history.
Founded in 1856 and operating until the 70’s of the 20th century, in 2011 it restarted its activity with a
transgressing and multidisciplinary proposal, where tradition and innovation create a unique experience.
The Moritz Factory is also a compendium of the incredible and tumultuous Barcelona’s history during the last 150 years. The guided tour we propose emerges from the many heritage elements that the factory includes, allowing us to travel in time.
This journey carries us throughout the dream of Louis Moritz, an Alsatian immigrant that arrived to
Barcelona in 1851 with the idea of producing beer, a drink that was hardly known in the city at that time.
