The Cibeles beer, located in the Madrid town of Leganés, began its journey 18 years ago, by July 2010, the result of the initiative of a group of entrepreneurs, led by David Castro to which they joined the passion for beer, the business world and the attachment to history, and his love for the people of Madrid, with the aim of offering the market a series of craft beers of high quality and low production volume.

Prior to the start of the company, David had been brewing beer at home for many years, which helped him learn an important part of the trade, and to refine what would become part of their brewing formulas.


This beer from Madrid on all four sides has received in recent years a series of distinctions in its different types of beer, for example its

Strong Ale

This beer is striking because of the mixture of red and very dark amber colors.

A very dense body almost gives the feeling that instead of beer there honey, it is an explosive combination of flavors.
