  • Cerveza de Bodega
    Estrella Galicia Especial

    The Cerveza de Bodega is a fresh beer that allows the properties of a freshly-made beer to be appreciated, and which maintains the level of carbonisation throughout. It is a natural beer, which does not create a feeling of fullness.


    • PLATO DEGREE: 13º P
    • ALCOHOL CONTENT: 5,5% ALC. VOL.
    • IDEAL SERVING TEMPERATURE: 5º C.

    Fresh and natural beer.
    The freshness of this beer is fundamentally due to the absence of pasteurisation. This is one of its main features and one that differentiates it from beer in a bottle, can or barrel.

    Freshly-made beer.
    The Cerveza de Bodega is kept in perfect conditions without the need to pasteurise, as the cold chain is unbroken during the whole process.

    A beer which does not come into contact with any gas.
    During both its transportation in a tanker truck and its storage in beer tanks, this beer is kept in a single-use sterile bag which allows constant temperature and pressure to be kept. This allows the same level of carbonisation with which it leaves Hijos de Rivera to be kept throughout its consumption.
