Moritz is the beer of Barcelona. Do enough eating, drinking or walking around in the food-crazed city of Barcelona and the signs are hard to miss: a big, blue "M" on a canary yellow background, announcing the return of Moritz beer to Spain's Catalonia region.
Originally the creation of an Alsatian brewer who swapped his native Alsatian taste buds for the Spanish going from choucroute to suquet, one might say.
Moritz first got going in 1856
