Artisan craft beers from Catalonia Spain.
After working in Germany and Denmark, two beer loving chemists came together to create the finest “live” unpasteurized craft beers they could. Using their love and passion for beer, applied knowledge of chemistry and beer crafting along with the world’s finest ingredients, Teresa Galvan and Arnau Rovera of Espiga make incredibly good and original beers, each one with its own character. They have established themselves in Spain as a force of porter, a lager lord and a master of malt! Espiga should have a crown on their beer’s head.
Nulla vita sine cerevisia!
(No life without beer!)
Wow! What a blonde! This is like no other, with big citrus fruits and hops without the bitterness of an IPA. By far the best Blonde Ale we've tasted in a bottle.
This is pale and golden in color, translucent, with a lingering white head. Its intense, clear, fruity aroma is particularly striking for its notes of citric and sour tropical fruits, hints of white grape together with notes of watermelon. It is fresh on the palate, with undertones of exotic fruits. Integrated carbonation with a slightly bitter farewell, inviting further tasting.
Pairing: Hors d’oeuvres, seafood, fruit salads, pizza, spicy dishes, hamburgers, white fish, olives
