Raw Material Selection
The secret to the success of our beers lies in the meticulous care and attention to detail that we apply to every beer. We use top quality raw materials to create a unique beer, with personality and traits that awaken the senses: through taste, aroma, colour and brightness.

This ingredient is of utmost importance, firstly because it is the main component of the product, about 94% and also because it is one of humanity’s greatest natural assets. This is why we are committed to reducing consumption by using it consciously and investing in technology to optimize our production.
Malt: We use Pilsen malt and special malt to create a unique beer, with personality and characteristics that awaken your senses through taste, aroma, colour and brightness.
Corn: Some of our recipes can contain up to 25% corn, in order to bring notes of freshness and lightness to the palate.
Fundamental to define the characteristics of the beer: the bitterness, stability and quality of the foam. They all revolve around this indispensable material, since, thanks to its antioxidant properties, hops are a natural preservative.
