Since 2010 Gino braut of Reuwe seine Beers Isla Verde in Tijarafe. With great success: Dining room and beer gardens its brewery are always well attended, and at the international competition of craft breweries in Madrid 2017 brought the Ales of under La Palma living Belgian 120 Competitors two gold and one silver. eight "bierige Babies" Gino has now in the program - "normal" including gluten-free and even a Pils.
Beers Isla Verde in Tijarafe:
Gino and his beer-babies
The dark, top-fermentedDanza del Diablo is the oldest 'child' by Gino: 2010 sold it "Devil dance" for the first time at the same Fiesta in Tijarafe - and the BREW arrived. After this test run of the Belgians opened 2011 the Cervecería Isla Verde, whereuponPicarasaw the light of the world, and the blonde, top-fermented "rogue" tasted also. To the popular Carnival event Día de los Indianos 2015 in Santa Cruz de La Palma, Gino eventually created the wheat beerIndiana, 2016 followed by the two Julieta-Daughters - gluten-free barley juice in a blond and a dark version. End 2017 was La graja Pirípi lifted from the baptism: Indicates the name "tipsy Crow" with a wink, that the six months in the bottle gereife triple dark ALE eight percent is strong. And beginning 2018 the inventive Brauer presented the Isla Verde natural craft Pilsen:
This Pilsner is brewed according to the classic recipe of the Bohemian Urpils and has only 4,7 % By volume. In contrast to the commercially available that is "Isla Verde natural craft Pilsen" not filtered and pasteurised. Few years ago I would not have dared, such a beer to BREW. But now I and my staff Jorge and Samuel have much experience and new plants, so that's worked out well. We wanted to create the flavour PILS, and my guests confirm, We have taken the.
On the label of some of its Bright and Dark, as well as its logo Gino lässst a Graja fly. And his youngest, 2019 according to the recipe of India Pale Ales kreiertes youngest isLa Graja IPA. Why does this only on La Palma living subspecies of the chough with her bright red beak at Gino again before?
The graja is almost already so something like a symbol of the Isla Bonita and their beautiful nature. She is also very intelligent and a bit mischievous - as well as my beers (laughs)... Therefore this bird fits perfectly to the image of Cervezas Isla Verde.
"Green Island beers" would mean the name of the factory in Tijarafe in German. And Gino so not only produces natural Ales, but it is working in line with the Green Island:
I BREW with respect for the environment: On the roof are modules for the current- and hot water production from solar energy. Moreover, bio-diesel is used, the a company in Las Manchas from oil residues of restaurants on the island produces. The remaining power, We need the, are we a provider of renewable energy. For this conversion, we get even a certificate, the operation with 100 Percent confirmed renewable. Most importantly, it pleases me personally, in this way to do something for the island and the climate.
The creative man, the once moved from Belgium to La Palma, happy times at the front is not only in terms of environmental. Also at the international competition of the breweries in Madrid 2017 was he one of the at the end the best 120 Participants: His top-fermented beers of summer Picara won a silver medal, and there was gold twice: Once in the area of Weißbiere for Gino's wheat beer Indiana and once in the category "best Belgian beers" for his dark, gluten-free Julieta Negra. To the latter, the avant-garde Brewer tells a story:
I named this beer after my daughter Julieta. Because it is Zöliakierin and has repeatedly asked "Daddy, When do you time a beer without gluten?"So I've created one: The basis of Julieta is quite normal barley malt, but the gluten contained therein is eliminated at the moment of the fermentation. We had them check it four times in a reputable laboratory in Belgium, and it complies with the stringent EU standard for gluten-free beers. I BREW now "Julieta Rubia" - This is a so-called "Golden ALE" - and the dark, consisting of four malts "Julieta Negra". The latter is the first black beer in Spain by the way without gluten.
Tingly on the tongue runs also the sechsprozentige black ALEDanza del Diablo, that also consists of four high quality malts and some caramel- and brewed chocolate malt. The delicately bitter, rebelliousPicara comes with 5,5 Alcohol percentage therefore, one of the Golden ales and has a handful of wheat in the recipe.The first genuine wheat beer Alice craft-beer workshop calledIndiana Gets its special touch by some abrasion of Orange and coriander seeds:
Indiana is not as bitter as for example wheat beers from Berlin or Bayern. I BREW's Belgian style. Is the secret of all beers, the balance between bitterness, Body and flavors to find. It is easy, a strong beer with a lot of alcohol or to produce a bitter ALE, how it is fashionable in the United States. But you can drink only one of. I am, however, trying to BREW beers, the desire to do more ...
Gino's goal was to create from the beginning of "craftsmanship and honest" beers. And so his ales without accelerating production enzymes mature, Septic additives or foam stabilizers with a pleasant carbonic acid content. The industrial engineer has acquired the necessary know-how during his time in Belgian breweries, and accordingly, his recipes are based on the traditional "Witbier" manufacturing. Also his ingredients come in large part from a 200 Years old family operating in Belgium, where the head of the Cervezería Isla Verde more raw materials from La Palma will integrate in the future. However do they existBeers Isla Verde not only here:
Meanwhile, we sell them in the big supermarkets in Tenerife and Gran Canaria - such as Al Campo, Carrefour or Corte Inglés. On La Palma, they are available in all branches of the Spar Group, in the branches of Hiperdino and Max Coop. Of course in many restaurants around the island, in the bar of Laly in Puerto Naos, in the Carpe diem or the La Marmota and re-Belle in Tazacorte, at La Luna in Los Llanos or at Tasca Castillo in Garafía, to cite just a few examples. In some places, the beer from the barrel comes, in others out of the bottle.
Of course, there are the creations of Gino always in his tavern to buy in Tijarafe. There, guests can the equipment for brewing technology from Belgium, Italy, Look at Germany and Slovakia from the guest room through a glass window. A gag: A pipeline under the ground leads directly from the brewery in the counter drum, and from there the tasty ales bubble foaming in the distinctive Trappist chalice from Belgium. The success ofBeers Isla Verde of course last but not least is the Baker hearty cuisine of the restaurant, explain Gino and his wife Jolanta:
There are both palmerische specialities such as Conejo en salsa or homemade goat cheese as also excerpts from the German cuisine. For example our farmer sausage, that we ourselves produce. We got this recipe from a German neighbor, often comes to us and wanted to eat his favorite sausages to beer ... (both laugh).

On the other are two small outside beer gardens, where you can enjoy the varied cuisine as well as the devilishly good beers by Gino taste and with the spectacular views of the Atlantic Ocean.
