BARLOVENTO

In 1811, under the Napoleonic Wars, the English captain George S. Goldroll, carried out the feat of transport aboard the merchant frigate Windward 800 gallons of Imperial Stout to the port of St. Petersburg, circumventing the Continental Block imposed by the French to the British trade.

After a random voyage, bordering the Scandinavian coast, capping storms and raiding enemy ships and icebergs, managed to reach the court of the tsars. This successful journey would give the Imperial Stout the strength of smoky and exotic notes that would make it exceptional.

Heir of those epic trips is born BARLOVENTO, the new beer of Althaia Artesana, a Smoke Imperial Stout intense and robust thanks to notes smoked and the special touch of tonka bean that give it that unique character. Designed for authentic sailors, made to taste in a good glass and to appreciate its thick cinnamon foam and feel as they reach the senses its complex, rich and deep flavour.

TYPES OF BEER

CORNAMUSA

Mary Read was born around 1690 in London, England. Her mother pretended to be a child in search of financial support from her supposed paternal grandmother. Under his male alter ego he enlisted on a ship as a sailor, later leaving him to enlist in the English army and standing out in battle, but later reenrolled on a ship.

During a crossing, Mary’s ship was attacked and captured by pirate Jack Rackham, and his pirate companion Anne Bonny. Still dressed as a man, Mary was recruited by the pirates. Over time his true identity was discovered, which was no problem for the dreaded Rackham.

While sailing through the Caribbean Sea, Read fell in love with one of the crew and they were married according to the rites of piracy.

On October 20, 1720, Captain Barnet’s troops, sent by the governor of Jamaica, captured Rackham and his crew, most of whom were drunk and offered no resistance. Rackham and his crew were sentenced to be hanged for acts of piracy. Mary Read and Anne Bonny claimed to be pregnant, and received a stay of execution. Mary Read died early in 1721 of a fever while still in prison.

In honor of Read is born Cornamusa, nautical word chosen to give name to this American Red Ale style beer, with 5.7% vol. and 40 ibus of bitterness. It is a fresh, copper-colored beer with reddish edges, prominent and creamy foam. In the nose, tropical aromas such as papaya and passion fruit prevail and in the mouth it is fresh and strong at the same time, with a balance between the freshness provided by hops such as Citra, Mosaic or Simcoe and the caramel notes due to the use of malts like the Crystal T50 or the DRC.

sidama

SIDAMA

SIDAMA – BROWN COFFEE PORTER It is a collaboration between two artisan worlds, D·Origen Coffee Roasters and Althaia Artesana. It is a beer of mahogany colour, with base of coffee and creamy foam, consistent and of vanilla colour. The characteristic aromas of this coffee recently roasted and milled have been integrated into this beer by means of a previous infusion in cold called – cold brew – adding this during its elaboration. The coffee offers us hints of red fruits, mocha and toffee which leaves us with a refreshing acidity on the taste buds thanks to the mixture of malts and the contribution of coffee with red fruits aftertaste like gooseberries. This is certainly a refreshing beer and a satisfying drink, with a fine bubble and very well integrated due to the natural fermentation.

MASCARAT

GIVE HIM TO MASK AND HE WILL TELL YOU THE TRUTH

Some time ago a bandit lived in the mountains that separate Las Marinas. In those days to cross them to go from Altea to Calpe, one could only go through a narrow road used by our beloved MASCARAT to rob the unsuspecting travelers. And in his honor we make this Black IPA with rye, black, creamy and very hoppy.

A beer that, with its color is very drinkable and with a predominance of hops. On the nose: citrus, resinous and pinnaceous aromas that contrast with notes of soft chocolate and toast.

Black and a good tan foam. Its flavor is the balance between the dark malts and the hops that bring a marked bitterness. The mouthfeel is creamy and refreshing at the same time with a medium carbonation.

With this beer we wanted to experiment and take a step further with one of the most risky combinations of malts and hops: dark malts, rye and dry hopping.

Ingredients Water from Altea, barley malt, rye malt, hops and yeast.

heliodora

HELIODORA

Heliodora restless waiting down the road. At the end of February her father always brought her sanguinelli oranges from the market.
With the snow-capped mountains, deep in the winter, those blood-red fruits seemed to announce the warm breeze of spring. And every year wondered how would the trees that grew so beautiful fruit.

The history of the orange trees is a long journey. They arrived in the Mediterranean from China a thousand years ago, when they gave a bitter fruit that was used as medicine and seasoning. They adapted so well to their new home that they spontaneously produced a multitude of new varieties until, in 1646, the Italian botanist Gian Battista Ferrari first described the red pigment in citrus.

The different varieties of blood oranges traveled for centuries in sailing boats and became popular throughout Europe thanks to their resistance to long trips. With the arrival of the steamer ships, the sailing time was reduced so that other varieties could be exported and little by little the blood oranges fell into oblivion.

But Heliodora never forgot them. The Mediterranean sun had reserved her gift in Altea, where she found the trees that intrigued her since childhood. Now, every February, he goes to his centenary garden with the illusion of a girl to pick up the sanguinelli oranges that are added to this Berliner weisse.

A wheat beer, brewed according to the ancient recipe in the early twentieth century was about to disappear. It is soft, refreshing and slightly acidic, with the touch of color and aroma that these very special citrus fruits provide.

Prussian tradition and Mediterranean character.
