History of beer Alhambra

Let's take a brief look at the history of the brand Alhambra so that you can discover the origin of this beer, which is so outstanding at a national level.

Although in 1884 there was already a brewery in Granada that was named after Alhambra , its start as a brand began in 1925. The company re-emerged thanks to the initiative of a French/Catalan, a Basque and with the participation of the owner of La Moravia (Carlos Bouvard).

They started brewing the beer with medicinal water from a water spring and the Aynadamar ditch. The brand had its great success between 1960 and 1980. But twenty years ago it went through a bad period, from which it emerged thanks to a chemist who created the Alhambra Reserva 1925, along with other later creations.

The brand has had many ups and downs over the years. It had to sell part of its stock abroad and even went through a little bump with Heineken.

In 2006, it became part of the Mahou-San Miguel group (another well-known Spanish beer brand). The company concentrates its sales in Eastern Andalusia, although since 2000 it has begun to expand to other Spanish regions.
