San Miguel 1516
This golden coloured lager named and brewed in accordance with the German beer Purity Law (or Reinheitsgebo) decreed in 1516 by William IV of Bavaria. This is the name of a series of regulations that states that the "only ingredients used for the brewing of beer must be barley, hops and water". San Miguel Brewery is present in the Spanish market since 1953, and it was acquired by Mahou in 2000, becoming Spain’s largest brewer, the Mahou-San Miguel Group. San Miguel 1516 was chosen as the best European pilsner lager in the World Beer Awards of 2011.
