In February 2019, they opened their brewery and "taproom" in Rupià (Girona), which they built themselves with mostly recycled materials and paying attention to every detail.

ANZAC (Australian and New Zealand Army Corps) is an acronym for a joint Australian and New Zealand army in times of war. The term originated in 1915 on the occasion of the landing of allied forces that fought in the Battle of Gallipoli during World War I. Similarly, ANZAC Spirit marries Australian hops (Galaxy) with a New Zealand hop (Motueka) in a beer with hints of grapefruit and passion fruit and a light, dry finish.
Beer: Pacific Pils
Style: New Zealand Pilsner
Pacific Pils is a modern interpretation of a beloved classic. A unique hop variety, Motueka, gives it a subtle hint of citrus and pine. The result is a balanced, smooth and easy-to-drink beer that, together with its artwork, will transport you to the Antipodes!
