Beers with the best mountain taste
Cervezas Alpujarra · Órgiva
Granada has traditionally been a land of beer and, for a few years, has also added itself to the trend of craft beer. The Alpujarra beer are is a good example of this.It is made in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada, specifically in the municipality of Órgiva, which serves as a gateway to the Alpujarra of Granada.
Its ideologist, master brewer and owner is Aurelio Blanco, who after two years making beer at home decided to convert his hobby into a profession .His passion for the Alpujarra region made the first step be to register the name and, from there, he produced his first beer.
Today, there are already six varieties that make up its catalog, although there are others that, on the basis of certain parties or moments of the season, go on the market throughout the year in a timely manner. Annual production is close to 20 hectoliters , thanks to a very traditional process that takes place in a small Órgiva workshop.
Immersed now in a process of renewal and growth, the different varieties of Cervezas Alpujarra are already well established in a local market where there are also other craft brands .In fact, very close, in Lanjarón, the Lánchar beers are produced and to the south, in Padul, the so-called Mammooth. Further on, next to the port of La Ragua, the Nazarí beers are based. All of them are examples of rich beers with all the flavor of Granada.
