ourMaster Brewers

Just as graffiti is not “just painting a wall” and rap is not “just rhyming”, a master brewer doesn’t just “make beer”: he or she is the Maestro of fermentation and hops. The master has to know what’s going on in each of the steps in the brewing process: the selection of grains, of the aromatic hops, the fermentation times and temperatures… it’s a job for the experts! That is why, in a place that is as demanding and creative as La Fábrica, we can only work with the best.

Paco Ferrete placed his trust in Jorge Varela and Juan Navarro, and so they came to Malaga. They are the soul of our beer and it is their job to transmit the purest essence and best-kept secrets of the elaboration process of craft beer to gastropub’s customers. Inspired in Malaga, in its people and in Soho’s urban art scene, they will be creating seven unique varieties of beer that you can’t help but drink artfully. The #beer_culture has arrived!


"The Galician Walter White of Beer"

After studying Chemistry he managed to achieve what everyone dreams about doing: he turned his hobby into a job. His passion for beer has led him to get to know this beloved liquid extremely well, and his infinite creativity has inspired him to experiment, coming up with more than 350 of his own creations. Now, at La Fábrica, he is giving form to his art with the dream of creating new varieties using the raw materials of Malaga’s countryside.


"The Cyrano in Love with Hops"

He says he found his match in hops, malt and yeast; which makes him the perfect “polyamorous brewer”. Since then, his love affair with craft beer has done nothing but grow. After studying Biology, he went on to pursue a master’s degree at the School of Beer and Malt, immersing himself in the best of brewing science. Our young but experienced MB recognises that “to make an IPA you have to be brave,” and our MBs are exactly that. With their ability to incorporate the essence of the environment into their beers, they have come to Malaga to make the streets their muse and create experiences full of flavours, aromas and connotations.

Paco Ferrete

"The Yoda of Master Brewing"

Don Francisco Ferrete – Paco – is our Cruzcampo master brewer in Seville, and since 1979 he has been devoted body and soul to creating what he calls “bottled happiness”. It all started when his father asked him if he knew anything about chemistry… And thus began his #deep_love of beer. He has become an eminent figure in the world of beer, and the fact that one of the guardians of Cruzcampo’s brewing craft is involved in La Fábrica is not just news, it is also a great honour!
