The Design Heritage of Granada’s Alhambra, Brewed into Craft Beer
High on the hilltop, surveying the ancient and beautiful city of Granada stands the Moorish palace of the Alhambra. When Cervezas Alhambra searched for a name that would convey our philosophy of craft beer made with great care and time, the founders could think of no better symbol than the Alhambra itself.
To this day, enormous fortress walls and military installations stand as a testament to the military history of this place and the way that the kings fought for the place they loved.
Over the years the Palatine city, or collection of palaces, was built and various conquering monarchs changed pieces of the Alhambra to suit the fashion of the day. However, these changes did not persist. In the 19tt, 20th, and even the 21st centuries, extensive restoration efforts brought about a return to the original style, art, and architecture of the Alhambra.
Preserving this history became important to Granada and also to Spain.
Now, it is possible to see details throughout the Alhambra that indicate its continuing majesty in the world scene. Courtyards, gardens, and the imposing buildings throughout its monumental complex, require hours to tour. In fact, many people choose to visit multiple times and see new things each time. Its collection of Moorish, Islaminfluenced architecture and art is second to none and has meant that millions of people visit it each year.
Cervezas Alhambra aspires to a high level of craft, and it only makes sense that their beers are made slowly and carefully. After all, the bulk of the Alhambra took from 1238 to 1358 to build. The Nasrid King knew that good things come to those who wait.
Cervezas Alhambra takes the time to use the hops, malt, and excellent Granada water needed to make a high-quality, beautiful beer that is a pleasure to drink. This company recognizes their roots in much the same way Spaniards have recognized the historical significance of the Alhambra. Protecting great craftsmanship matters, in both architectures and in excellent beer.
Just like it takes contemplation to truly take in the many aspects of the Alhambra, craft beer is best savored and understood over time. Cervezas Alhambra’s philosophy advocates for reclaiming our time, and that starts with choosing artistry over a quick fix.
Craft beer connoisseurs aspire to find the next truly well-made beer for their palates, and Cervezas Alhambra delivers these brews. Whether you’ve seen Granada in real life, or have simply had the dream of visiting to see the iconic red rammed-Earth walls of the fortress, a bottle of Alhambra will transport you to a different time.
