When moving to Lisbon, I actually had no idea the city would be this full of craft beer. There are several breweries and quite some craft beer bars to be found across the whole city. Don’t worry – also the offering is rather extensive and does change quite often. I definitely had a good time checking out on Untappd to see whether they launched a new beer at one of my favourite places. Visiting Lisbon and a craft beer fan just like me?

Cerveteca was definitely my favourite craft beer bar in Lisbon. They have an extensive offering of fine beers on tap (around 15) and the offering is quite international and original. Next to that, almost every day and at least once a week they update their tap list. You’ll never be bored and always have something new to try here.
Cervejaria Artesanal Adamastor is a very small beer bar in Bica and was actually located right around the corner of my house. The owner / bar tender is great – you often get a little snack and nice conversations about beer included. Especially when it is quiet, he might have a nice more special beer or new release for you to try.
Fabrica Musa is my favourite tap room. Both Fabrica Musa and Dois Cervois are a little further out, but you’ll be there with an Uber in 10 to 15 minutes and it is a 45 minute to an hour walk from Praço do Comércio. They host quite some events and sell most of their great beers on tap. The vibe is rather industrial and you’ll see it becomes packed on a late afternoon or evening on a Saturday. They also have a new craft beer bar opened in the city centre (Bica), which is called Musa da Bica. It wasn’t there when I lived there, but I bet it is worth a try.
The second brewpub, located on walking distance from Fabrica Musa, you’ll find the brewpub of Dois Cervos. Try all their beers (I remember their Milkshake IPA best, that just came out when I visited, amazing!) and enjoy your afternoon with one of the board games lying around.
Duque was one of the first beer bars in Lisbon with an extensive beer offering on tap. It is a cosy brewpub located in the centre of Lisbon (in Chiado) with both inside places as well as a terrace. They also offer some ‘Duque Beers’ and their tap is changing often. They are often referred to as the best brewpub in town.
The Beer Station is a small beer bar located closely to Rossio station. Their tap might not be as extensive as most of the bars in this best craft beer bars in Lisbon list – however, they do offer an extensive offering of cooled and bottled beers. I’m sure you can find a craft beer you like in here.
Crafty Corner is a hip beer bar that is located closely to Cais de Sodre train station and therewith the waterfront. You’ll recognize the bar soon enough by their neon-logo outside. They have 12 beers on tap and rotate the tap on a weekly basis, where they always make sure you are able to discover a new brewery or a more exciting beer.
This one might not be the most exciting one, as it is more of a chain. However, Delirium Cafe is also based in Lisbon and perfect when you are looking for an extensive beer menu where the Portuguese beer don’t have a central place on the menu.
It is a shame I’ve never visited this brewpub during my stay in Lisbon! The place is located a little bit further out of town, but fairly close to LX factory. The place is located in a cave, which gives it a special vibe!
A.M.O is micro-brewery in Lisbon which is also has a very small taproom. It is small and people are mainly enjoying their beer while standing on the street and their opening hours are less extensive then the other places in this list – but when you are looking for a more authentic place; this is definitely your place to go!
I’m a big craft beer fan, however Lisbon is definitely more diverse than just craft beer. There is a wide offering of wine bars and cocktail bars in the city too. Do you want to know more? Check out the article about my top 10 favourite bars in Lisbon! Next to that, it has been 2 years since I’ve visited Lisbon, so some new craft beer bars have opened such as Musa de Bica, Outro Lado, Sputnik Craftbeer and Libeerdade (crazy right, SO many options!). I always use Untappd to retrieve an overview of all verified locations in a city (and their with a good overview of craft beer bars in Lisbon, Portugal) which also allows you to check out their current menu.
