Malt, water and hops are the basis of any beer. But at the same time all brands differ from each other in taste, color, aroma and ABV. What is the secret? Each brand of beer requires separate cooking and a special subsequent process procedure. Each brand is a unique recipe, developed by our experts in strict accordance with the traditional brewing. Composition of each brand requires a certain proportion of malt and hops. Hops are divided into several species – aroma and bittering, and they also differs by origin. Malt is still more difficult, as malt species are quite a lot, we can list only a few of them: barley – light, dark, caramel, burnt, as well as wheat and rye. Taste and color of the beer almost entirely depends on the type of malt used. Our brewers select the highest quality hops and malt for beer making so that each kind of beer is unique. Addition of unmalted materials, such as rice and corn grits, can bring various original notes of taste in beer. Usually their addition softens the taste of beer and makes it more refined. You can be sure that by choosing our product, you choose taste, quality and commitment to the long-standing traditional brewing.

Beer making is a complex and lengthy process, consisting of several technological stages: making of malt, making of beer wort, fermentation, maturation, beer filtration and bottling. Beer, produced by the BSP «KRYM», is made according to original recipes from natural high-quality raw materials and under special technology, which includes advanced scientific achievements and classical traditions of brewing. At the moment the facility is equipped with the most modern equipment; and annual investments in production allow to increase the capacity of the enterprise. Quality of the products produced by the facility is confirmed by numerous awards and victories in various competitions.

We always take responsibility for the quality of drinks we produce!
