¡Salud! Beermad 2022 is back and better than ever, kicking off this Saturday, May 14.
As the name suggests, this weekend long festival is all about cerveza— the perfect beverage to sip on in the hot sun.
Held at the Pabellón de Cristal at Casa de Campo, Beermad boasts an impressive selection of beer from 35 participating craft breweries for beer-lovers and first-timers alike to
This is the seventh annual festival and, notably, the first Beermad without capacity restrictions since the beginning of the pandemic. The festival’s website explains that they are aiming to host
15,000 guests, a high number much closer to the festival’s capacity pre-pandemic.
Beermad’s founding goal is to celebrate the small, local breweries in Spain’s often overwhelmingly large and lucrative beer industry.
This year’s festival is held in collaboration with five breweries: La Virgen, Chula, Factoría de Cerveza, Founders Brewing and Nómada Brewing. A festival like this provides great exposure for these smaller businesses, bringing excited customers directly to their product.
But there’s more than just beer to enjoy at Beermad 2022. Visitors can also fill up on food from street trucks— molletes, paella, samosas and burgers are just a few of the many dishes for festival-goers to choose from. Beermad-goers also have three days of live music to look forward to, with nine bands on the lineup playing music throughout the whole festival.
Beermad 2022 lasts from May 14 – May 16, with two time slots (11:30-17:30 and 18:00-24:00) on Saturday and Sunday and one (11:30-19:00) on Monday. Guests can purchase tickets on
Fever, for €2,50 per time slot. Bus lines 31, 33, 36, 39 and 65 will take guests to the site, as will lines 10 (Lago) and 6 (Puerta del Ángel and Alto de Extremadura) on the metro.
