Alhambra brewery was founded in Granada in 1925 and is named after the city's magnificent Alhambra Palace. Alhambra beers, like the Palace, are a by-word for tradition and craftmanship. This is evident in the premium Reserva 1925 – named after the year of the brewery's foundation and first brewed in 1997, inspired by the first recipes. The iconic bottle (awarded both Gold and overall best in show for packaging in the 2015 International Beer Challenge) is based on the original design. The finest ingredients are used: Nugget, Magnum and Taurus hops for bittering, Saaz for aroma; a specific yeast strain pitched fresh in every batch, and crystal clear water from the Sierra Nevada mountains. It is brewed and conditioned over a lenghty 35 days to impart the maximum of flavour and smoothness.
