Hello, my name is Jesus and this is the story of Beerbay.
It all started in 2016, while living in Copenhagen (Denmark), cradle of the craft beer revolution in Europe. While at first glance it seemed that all the bars in Copenhagen were serving the same beer, I slowly discovered places where upon entering you could see a blackboard with 30 different beers that changed every day.
At first it was hard to know what to order, so many times I chose the beer that had the name that sounded best to me, or simply drew lots to see what number it touched. But little by little terms like IPA or stout became familiar and soon I was surprised to naturally ask for a Oatmeal Stout or a Milkshake IPA.
Then came the idea of home brewing, which at first sounded like an American after-dinner movie, but ended up becoming a hobby.
One May afternoon while the sun was setting in Christiania and holding a beer in my hand, I started to think about how to combine my passion for web design and the world of start-ups with beer. Shortly after, I was moving back to Spain and Beerbay was born as an online store that wants to be a reference for fans of craft beer in Spain and throughout Europe. I hope you like it!
