Imported American Hops
Our Head Brewer, Alan Sheppard, is rather particular about the ingredients he uses to brew his passion. We import thousands of kilograms of freshly picked American hops from the Yakama Valley in Washington State. During your brewery tour ask to take a whiff of our hops cooler. The aroma is intoxicating.
Live Liquid Yeast
If you want authentic American Craft beer there is only one way to go, live, fresh liquid yeast. Edge uses White Labs yeast exclusively. We fly it to Barcelona from San Diego, California on regular overnight international shipments. Our commitment to brewing awesome beer borders on an obsession. The yeast is kept happy and health via our quality assurance lab and specially designed yeast brinks for storage.
Top Notch Brewing Equipment
Yes, brewing equipment design can have a major impact on the resulting flavor and character of beer. It would have been almost impossible to make authentic American Craft beer without the proper tools. So we packed up six cargo containers of American design and built brewing equipment and brought it with us. You may have read one of our coasters or t-shirts, “Most people bring a towel and a toothbrush, we brought a brewery” well, it’s true!
Water makes up 95+% of beer. American Craft beer requires pure water, not just filtered city water. To accomplish this we brought water treatment equipment, specifically design for brewing beer, from San Diego, the birth place of American Craft beer. So regardless of beer style or incoming city water quality we can create that flavor and aroma craft beer lovers have come to expect.
