History of the Tropical
In 1924 Cástor Gómez Navarro founded the brewing company La Tropical , in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, but the beginning of the war drove it into bankruptcy, being acquired by a group of businessmen who created the Sociedad Industrial Canaria. The production of this new society went beyond beer, as it was also dedicated to other sectors such as coffee, chocolate and even fishing.
In 1960 the Barranco Seco factory was opened in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria. This marked the beginning of the company's expansion, becoming the main beer producer in the Canary Islands and one of the largest companies in the region. Its trade name was Tropical which continues to be marketed.
