Great depth of tropical fruits – mango. pineapple – plus orange and citrus. Initial sweetness is balanced by a crisp bitterness on the finish with final notes of resinous hops.

About the Brand

La Pirata

A group of home brew enthusiasts started out in 2004 and soon developed a strong following for their artisan brews. Realising that they could begin production on a larger scale, Cerveses La Pirata was born and these ‘Pirates’ were finally able to come out of hiding in 2012.

After three years living a nomadic life brewing in other factories, La Pirata opened their first brewery in October 2015 in Súria, a small village 70km from Barcelona.

They have collaborated with half a dozen international craft breweries including Brew by Numbers in London and Against the Grain in the USA. Since its inception, the brewery has won the National Award for the Best Brewery in Fira del Poblenou (Barcelona) twice, while also picking up other awards including two bronzes at the Global Craft Beer Awards.
