Estrella Damm – THE MEDITERRANEAN BEER

Since 1876, Estrella Damm has been synonymous with Barcelona, its taste infused with the city’s unique cultural expression of food, art and Mediterranean pace of life.

140 years ago, a young August K. Damm and his wife Melanie emigrated from Alsace to escape the Franco-Prussian war. Their journey took them to the Mediterranean to realize their dreams of doing what they did best: brewing beer. In 1876 they established their own brewery, having crafted a distinctive and evolved beer, suitable for warmer climates, so different to existing central European beers: The Mediterranean Lager.

To this day, Estrella Damm is brewed using their original 1876 recipe and only the best Mediterranean ingredients: barley malt, rice and hops. The quality of our ingredients is of the utmost importance and as such, we work closely with local Mediterranean farmers, supplying them with our carefully selected pure seed varieties. Our yeast is unique and it is stored under high security measures and our malt is processed to the strictest standards in our own malthouse, La Moravia.

It takes a minimum of 3 weeks for Estrella Damm to complete the fermentation and production process. This level of care and attention has been recognized through the acclaim and numerous awards won across the globe. Issues such as Oxidation and Microbiological Contamination are overcome by using the most modern packaging technology. And our brown bottle protects against ultraviolet radiation, this combined with appropriate cold storage ensures that the beer can be enjoyed as was intended: Mediterráneamente.
