To continue brewing beers, branch into the canned beer market and connect the local community in the Northwest Argentinean countryside

Who are we?

A sibling business living in our beautiful hometown in San Salvador de Jujuy in Northwest Argentina. As a relatively economically deprived area of South America, with little opportunity for young people, we saw a vision to change that. Providing another industry for people, hospitality businesses the opportunity to lower their costs by buying local produce and also, just providing a delicious beer for the people.

We started brewing back in November 2017. 

The story so far...

With private investments of £30,000, within one year we increased our production five-fold and tripled our infrastructure. We proudly send 80% of all the beer we produce to local bars in Jujuy.  We aim that by the end of 2020 we can reach 5000+ litres of beer per month and will be on the shelves in the local supermarkets too! 

Your support

Our business is surviving the pandemic lock-down, but we realise how many other organisations do not have the same fortune. We want to adapt our business and lower our expenses so we can provide more support to our community. 

Earlier this year, we acquired planning permission to build a factory on premises we already own.  We intend to move our brewery to these larger premises and buy a beer-can-filler machine:

- Beer cans are growing increasingly popular in the market, they are easier to recycle and can reach a wider audience of craft beer lovers. 

- Relocating the brewery onto our own premises means we will be safe when another crisis appears but more importantly, it will lower our expenses so we can pledge a 5% per can donation to the local food shelter"Octavio Herrera". They serve food to 200 people including children and seniors. However, at present they only have enough funding to open just two days a week.
