About The Blue Goat

I started La Cabra Azul – The Blue Goat – back in June 2014 and has been one hell of a ride. I have always loved beer and in Amsterdam, where I used to live, there was so much variety. German weizen, Belgian Trappists, American IPAs, Dutch triples. Once I moved to Andalusia, suddenly there was no more special beer. Just very non-special beer.

If I was lucky they might have some Alhambra, or Victoria, otherwise you’d think there’s only one beer in Spain, i.e. Cruzcampo. I quickly began brewing my own. I wanted to brew the beer I was missing and that’s exactly what I did.

The long and the short of it: Word got out about my beer, people got excited, I started selling to local bars and things took off from there. I get a real kick out of  introducing people to styles of beer they have never tried before. A big part of my brewing process is to use as many local ingredients as I can get my hands on, including the Comares spring water, local mangoes, Almond Blossom from the slopes of the Montes de Málaga and as of this fall: our own hops! Very excited to see that hops actually seem to grow very happily in our climate.

I’d love to hear what you think and CHEERS!

    If you can get a Coopers Micro Brew kit I would go for that, otherwise head to your nereast home brew store and they will be able to tell you which ones to get or avoid
