Brewtal Box #7

Drinking Local

Let's support the local artisan movement!

It is no secret that the boom in the craft beer sector has been unstoppable in recent years and at Brewtal we want to support the local movement and its entrepreneurs.

For these last days of summer we come with a very special box, for the first time we bring 4 beers from the same house and it is that the Cervecera Península deserves it. Cheers!

Peninsula, the dream of a beer-loving family

Román and his father, Juan Ramón, have their first contact with craft beer in Colorado – USA, where they begin to experiment as home brewers.

After years of making his own beer, Román is doing more formal studies in California, in order to make his dream of opening a brewery in Madrid come true, where, as they say, they want to 'share beers that they like to drink and whose recipes have been carefully developed'

In 2017 they opened their brewery, with a capacity of 100. 000 liters, where they are dedicated to producing 4 line beers and their seasonal beers, all with a marked American type.

A very young company, but with a lot of experience, which has won the award for the best American Style IPA in Spain at the World Beer Awards 2018.

This month's Brewtal Box comes with 2 line and 2 seasonal beers. After trying them, you will surely want to visit the Peninsula family at their factory that is near Madrid and opens to the public on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays.
