hi everyone

Does anyone know what regulations apply to brewing beer in Spain (on a small-scale commercial basis)?
In the UK, small breweries ('micro-breweries') get a few tax breaks and a slightly easier ride from the state bullies, so long as they're below a certain size (measured in litres of beer per year)

what's the situation in Spain? I know there's quite a fashion for craft beers in the big population centres but I can't find much info on regulation of the brewing industry.

I can read Spanish but just don't know what search terms to use.

Hi Paul, you may have moved on in the 6 months since this was posted but I found an article for you here that might help.

http://www.consumer.es/seguridad-alimentaria/normativa-legal/2015/07/14/222193.php

They seem to be working on new legislation to cover microbreweries, or were last summer at least. Not aware if it passed.

For legal regulations in general, you probably want to use the word "normativa" in your search. And they seem to be wanting to regulate microbreweries under "fabricación artesana."

If you get set up, let me know and I might drop in for a caña.
