Preacher Brewery. Craft Beer in Salta

Preacher Brewery is a craft brewery located in San Lorenzo, just 10 minutes from the city of Salta at 1450 masl.

A craft brewery (or micro brewery) is a brewery that produces a limited amount of beer. The term is typically applied to breweries that are much smaller than large-scale corporate and have independent owners9.

These types of breweries are generally characterized by their emphasis on flavour, fermentation technique and use of quality ingridients.

Preacher Brewery produces 5 types of beers.



artisan beer


la belgaWHEAT: Witbier or wit blanche (white wheat in Spanish) is a wheat beer typical of the region of Belgium and Holland. This beer originates from the medieval tradition of preserving wheat beers with fruit and spices.

It is characterized mainly by being made not only with barley malt but also with a high proportion of wheat malt and peeled wheat, which give it its characteristic whitish hue.

The wheat gives a characteristic acidic profile and the citric flavors are thanks to the use of coriander and orange peel. It is a soft and refreshing beer, ideal to drink in summer.



inglesa morenaENGLISH MILD: It is one of the oldest styles of beer in England. It was born in the 18th century when, due to the population increase, some brewers began selling beer before it was ready.

Originally the term Mild, or soft, referred to a young or unripe beer. Today it refers more to beers that contain less hops, which are also lighter beers, with a low alcoholic content.

Fifty years ago, almost three-quarters of the beer brewed was of this style. In the last decades they lost ground in favor of other styles of beer and today, thanks to the craft beers, they are living a small renaissance.



la vaquitaMILK STOUT: Stout is the name for a very dark, high alcoholic beer style. English day laborers used to drink beer during their rest and some returned to their work day under the influence of alcohol, tired and even asleep.

To remedy this, the breweries sought to create a beer that was not only refreshing, but also nutritious and energetic. Since milk is a drink that has these qualities, the idea of ​​using it in beer is born.

The style is very similar to the typical stout style, with roasted aromas of cafe and chocolate. Lactose is the ingredient that creates this style; As depending on the amount used, neutralizes the bitterness of the beer or can sweeten its flavor.



el pirataPALE ALE: Pale Ale is a subtype of ale brewed by temperate fermentation using mainly a specific variety of malt known as Malta Clara (Pale malt).

Originally it was a draft beer served very fresh, without pressure (gravity only or hand pump) at basement temperature. The style was created as a barrel alternative to pale ale made in the field around the early twentieth century.

Nowadays the use of different types of preparations and the different hops varieties have given rise to beers pale ale of a wide diversity of flavors and intensities.




la ladrona del lupuloINDIA PALE ALE: During the British colonial period in India, there were a large number of troops and civilians who missed the beer of their country of origin. The trip to India was too long and hot to keep the typical beers from England traveling in barrels.

Prior to refrigeration, the solution was found in alcohol and hops. Alcohol provided a hostile environment for microbes and hops prevented the growth of bacteria that cause acidity.

The result was a very bitter, alcoholic and frothy Pale Ale that could withstand the challenges of travel and storage in India.




At Preacher Brewery you can enjoy all these varieties of beer on tap and even buy bottled beer or your own re-fillable growler.


The Preacher’s brewhouse, where these premium beers are made, is the best in Northwest Argentina and has modern brewing technology.
