Over 140 years ago, the young brewer August Kuentzmann Damm emigrated from Alsace with his wife Melanie, fleeing the Franco-Prussian War. The journey took them to the Mediterranean coast, where they settled to fulfil their dream: to brew beer.
In 1876 they opened their own brewery and created a beer that was adapted to suit the Mediterranean climate.
Lighter than central European beers that were designed for colder climates, we know it as Mediterranean lager.
Since then, Estrella Damm has been brewed using only 100% natural ingredients, with no additives or preservatives.
