Over 140 years ago,

the young brewer August Kuentzmann Damm emigrated from Alsace with his wife Melanie, fleeing the Franco-Prussian War. Their journey took them to the Mediterranean coast, where they settled to fulfil their dream:

to brew beer.

In 1876

they opened their own brewery and created a beer that was adapted to suit the Mediterranean climate. Lighter than Central European beers that were designed for colder climates, we know it as a

Mediterranean
lager.

  • The First
    Estrella Damm
    Estrella
  • The Current Estrella Damm Estrella

Estrella Damm is still made following

the original 1876 recipe;

a blend of

malt, rice and hops.

100% natural ingredients.

The quality of these ingredients is our first priority, and that is why we work directly with

local Mediterranean farmers.

Once selected, the barley arrives at the malthouse, where first it germinates and is then dried and toasted. Unlike many brewers, we have

our own malthouse,

which allows us to monitor the entire process first hand.

Our yeast is another ingredient that makes us unique, and we have been using the same strain for many generations. If it were lost or damaged then the taste of Estrella beer would change, and that is why we have

three reserves of this yeast

stored under the highest security: in Barcelona, Valencia and London.

Good things require patience, as do the fermentation and ageing of beer. We keep our beer for

one week in fermentation tanks and two in ageing tanks.

That is how we guarantee a perfect result.

Once this is done, we use

the latest technology in the bottling process

in order to combat the great enemies of a beer’s taste: oxidation and microbiological contamination.

Mediterranean Beer since 1876

Tasting note
Estrella Damm is a golden colour with tones of amber and slight shades of green. It is bright and sparkling, with a cream-coloured, long lasting head. It is a beer with lots of delicate, lively bubbles. The generous aroma is of fresh spices. The flavours of toasted grains add to the beer’s personality. The mouthfeel is smooth, thanks to the fine bubbles. Estrella Damm is a fresh-tasting beer, with a lively acidity. The finish is bitter and long lasting.

Serving
It is best to drink this beer from a glass that is slightly tapered at the top, to enjoy it in all its splendour. Best drunk between 4 and 6 degrees.
