About Us


Constantly following the law of German purity "Reinheitsgebot" of 1516 we diversify details and textures according to the national taste: Perfect relation between the brewing tradition and the charm of Ecuador. Our beers are handmade and made in small cooking portions. We do not pasteurize or use any flavoring or other artificial element. We exclusively use malts and hops of distinguished quality, combined with pure water from our city of San Francisco de Quito. The Cherusker were a Germanic tribe that inhabited parts of the Rhine River and the northern plains and forests of northwestern Germany. Its name refers to the horn of a deer. These horns were used as a pitcher for drinking, specifically for beer, since the old Germans were thirsty, very thirsty! Detailed reports about the behavior and also about the beer of our ancestors can be found in the works of the Roman writer Cornelius Tacitus. What impressed Cornelius the most was the marriage fidelity of the Germans, as well as their habit of drinking. In his work “Germania”, it tells that often they were lying in bear fur and in there they would drink mead and beer from their pitchers of giant horn. The Cherusker gained popularity by one of the most important battles of German history, in which the Roman Empire underwent a serious defeat. In the Teutoburg Forest in September 9, d.C. an alliance led by the Cherusker and their leader Arminius exterminated three Roman legions led by the governor of the province of Germania Publio Varo. Legend has it that when the emperor of the Romans, Julius Caesar Augustus received the news of the defeat, he was disheveled for several months, banging his head against a door and mourning: Varo, Varo, give me back my legions!
