3 craft beers from Tenerife that you have to try

Today we review 3 craft beers from the Island of Tenerife that you must try on your visit to Tenerife.


As we have already seen in some of our previous blogs, the Canary Islands is much more than sun and beaches. Tenerife is also a great place to expand your beer culture. Thanks to the influence of tourism and foreigners who decide to stay and live on our island, an interest in creating craft beers in the Canary Islands began in 2001.


The use of barley, malts and hops grown on the islands provides a particular flavor, linked to the volcanic character of the soil and the mild temperatures of the archipelago. Experimentation in search of memorable flavors, their minimal impact on the environment and support for the growth of the local economy, make them a very interesting gastronomic and social choice.


We offer you a selection of the 3 most important on the Island of Tenerife.

La Jefa is a microbrewery based in Santa Cruz de Tenerife.


We let them describe its operation and its way of being:


“At La Jefa we are dedicated to making craft beers in the traditional way, taking care of all the processes in a delicate way, selecting the best raw materials, pampering them and treating them with great affection to obtain the best results and offer a rich and unique beer.


But in La Jefa we want to go a little further, our intention is not only to make good beer, we want to take advantage of it to reclaim a space for women that history has silenced and hidden. We want to give them the opportunity to be The Bosses that they should have been. Each of our types of beers will be dedicated to one of those Bosses ”.

Tacoa is a family business that was founded on June 15, 2001 and that has its roots in the exciting story of a Canarian who, due to the hazards of life, one day landed in Berlin, and that we could summarize as follows:


Teresa, a woman almost “addicted” to infusions, arrived in Berlin in September 1989. There she experienced by surprise one of the most important events in history: the fall of the wall and the reunification of the two Germanies. She too there she fell in love doubly, on the one hand with Jochen and on the other with the BEER! And after many years in that incredible city – which she defines as captivating – she decided to embark on the adventure of returning to her island to make the exquisite beer that she met for the first time in the Teutonic country and that changed her palate. Beloved Berlin!


And it is precisely at this point that she begins a journey that began in June 2001, years full of pure brewing history.


The Tacoa brewery offers a wide range of craft beers, brewed in their premises in full view of the public, they also personalize their beers for all kinds of events. If you prefer, they also offer visits to their facilities and tastings with pairing. Do not hesitate to contact them for a visit and try one of the best beers in Tenerife.

Agüita, that popular Canarian expression that is used as a tagline when something especially impresses or attracts attention, either because of its novelty, curiosity, irony, or simply because it is scandalous or shocking, gives the name to this new Canarian craft beer, made entirely in Tenerife.


With a second fermentation in the bottle, naturally carbonated, unfiltered, slightly cloudy, and without additives or preservatives, it comes in five varieties: La Picona! (Indian Pale Ale), La Rubia! (Belgian Blonde), La Morenita! (Irish Dry Stout), Dead Bully (Pale Ale) and Hoppy Pilsen.
