New brewary annouced for Almería

A 50 year old ex-real estate salesman called Juan Torralbo has managed to scrape up 4,5 million euros worth of investment to launch Almería’s first beer brewary since the Romans.

It will be called Bayyana and will be brewed in a 2,000 square meter warehouse in Viator. The firm hopes to launch it’s new beer next summer, at the Almería feria.

It will be a rubia , a blonde lager. “The malt will be from Castilla; the hops from Madrid; the water, from the Enix river; the yeast, from whoever sells it the cheapest” joked Juan in an interview.

25 people will be employed by the firm, which will join other regional brews such as Alhambra from Granada, Victoria from Malaga, Alcazar from Jaen or Sureña from Cordoba.

Juan managed to get the funding from private investors through the Idea innovation agency, a government agency which helps people get funding for business ideas. I just hope it’s better than Almerían wine….
