“Traveling the Spanish countryside with Shelton Tours was a once in a lifetime experience. We explored remote areas, visited a centuries old Cava producer and got a chance to hangout, drink beers and check out the Godfather of Spanish craft brewing with a visit to Agullons in the countryside outside of Barcelona. The breadth of knowledge that was shared made it a totally unique and unforgettable trip. I would highly recommend taking part in their excursions. ”

Barcelona & Beyond

October 19 – 24, 2020

With its tantalizing mix of world-famous ancient and modern architecture, tasty tapas, local wine, sunny weather, and most importantly, friendly people, Spain has long been one of the world’s top tourist destinations — with Barcelona being by far the country’s most popular go-to, for reasons well known.

SEVERAL YEARS AGO DAN SHELTON BEGAN CHECKING OUT THE FLEDGLING BEER FESTS POPPING UP IN CATALUNYA, THE NORTHEASTERN REGION OF SPAIN FOR WHICH BARCELONA IS THE CAPITAL. AT FIRST, THE ENTHUSIASM LEVEL FAR SURPASSED THE TECHNICAL. BUT WHEN IT GRADUALLY BECAME CLEAR THAT THESE DO-IT-YOURSELF OLD-WORLD PIONEERS COULD BREW BEERS TO RIVAL THOSE OF BELGIUM, BRITAIN, GERMANY, AND THE U.S., THE SHELTON BROTHERS RAN WITH IT, BECOMING THE FIRST AND TO THIS DAY, ONLY IMPORTERS TO OFFER THE NEW BEERS OF SPAIN TO AMERICAN DRINKERS.

THE PASSION OF THE NEW CATALAN  BREWERS IS INFECTIOUS, AND THE SHELTON BROTHERS  MAKE IT A POINT TO GET TO SPAIN AS OFTEN AS POSSIBLE TO SOAK UP AS MUCH SUN, GOOD VIBES, AND GREAT BEER AS WE CAN. NOW, AFTER SEVERAL YEARS OF TOUTING THE VIRTUES OF SPANISH CRAFT SOLELY VIA IMPORTING IT TO THE U.S., WE HAVE DECIDED THAT WE NEED TO BRING OUR COMPATRIOTS OVER TO THE OLD COUNTRY TO EXPERIENCE THE WORLD’S LIVELIEST AND FASTEST-GROWING BEER SCENE FOR THEMSELVES.

Great people, great food, great beer (and wine, and cava), great bars, the ocean, mountains, and one of the world’s greatest cities? You gotta see and taste this.

HERE’S A LITTLE OF WHAT YOU MISSED IF YOU DIDN’T GO ON OUR LAST TOUR TO BARCELONA.
