Basque Craft Beer
Get to know the Pagoa brewery with our guide.
The brand of beer created in 1998 by Joxe Anjel Arbelaitz, was the first to produce craft beer in Basque Country and throughout Spain. Located in the quiet neighborhood of Ergoien in Oiartzun (Gipuzkoa), its manufacture is completely natural with top-quality ingredients and without any additives.
Pilsner • Horia
Low fermentation pilsner beer. It is a bodied beer, soft, fine and clean, with a nice sweet fragrance to hops and fine malt. Its golden color and delicate and harmonious taste make it ideal on all occasions.
Our Ipa is not like the others. We have bedded our aromatic hops in classic pale ale malt but with a touch of caramel malt to round the intense aromatic flavour of our hops from the northern and southern hemispheres .We have used the sutble tropical fruit flavour of Australian hops to compliment the strong grapefruit flavour of classic American hops to produce a softer aromatic flavour and drinkability we think is a perfect marraige of hops and malts.
Red ale • Gorria
The typical “Red Ale” with a traditional hop flavor to compensate the fruity character of the yeast and the appetizing flavor of natural caramel derived from the malts used. Appertains to the group of beers with high fermentation.
Stout • Beltza
Stout-porter beer, high fermentation, made from strongly roasted matter. It has an aromatic, roasted, rich, clean and dry character and a bittersweet flavor. No doubt, it is thought to take more than one.
