Living on the Cornish coast gives Rebel Brewing Co. founder Guillermo Alvarez all the inspiration he needs to craft some of the UK’s finest beer. As he watches the waves break against the shore a stone’s throw from his Penryn microbrewery, Guillermo’s mind races with thoughts of the flavours, aromas and possibilities he can draw from just four ingredients: barley, hops, yeast and water.
Getting hands-on at every stage of the process – from the mashing and brewing, right through to the bottling and labelling – coaxes tastes and smells as diverse as mango, brown sugar and lemongrass from the simplest of raw ingredients.
The quality of brews like Cornish Sunset and Penryn Pale Ale has been recognised with multiple awards, but what Guillermo finds most rewarding is seeing drinkers appreciate the creativity and attention to detail that goes into every bottle Rebel produce.
