History

The intensity of our land in a beer

Since Keler's founding it has used tradition, heritage and vision to create a unique beer which carries the character of its homeland.

The Kutz brothers came to Donostia in the mid-19th century and started making beer in their Ategorrieta house. They opened their first brewery in 1872 at Chofre 19, and a decade later, they established the Antiguo factory.

In 1888 keler won its first silver medal at the World Exhibition in Barcelona, in recognition of the beer's purity and original taste.

Its recipe has stayed the same throughout the years a taste which continues to receive international recognition.

A taste which brings the intensity of our land to the entire world.
