Über uns

The story begins in Buenos Aires in 2008. Two brothers are thirsty. They find nothing exciting in the market. They think ‘We should make our own beer’. And they do. Soon, their mom’s balcony is full of kegs.

Just like a chef combines ingredients to create new dishes, Ramiro experiments with recipes to make beer exciting, fresh, new. He takes every course there is. He learns and gets confident. Soon he realizes that his passion for craft is not only connected to innovation but also to the flavours and aromas of the ingredients. High-quality ingredients become Gorilla’s standard.

Gorilla starts growing and gaining recognition in Argentina. They open one bar, then two, then three. They open their brewery. They travel and win International Prizes. As they grow Nicolas becomes the numbers-genius making sure the beer is enough for each of the bars, the ingredients are there in time to brew, and that inflation doesn’t hit us hard(er). A hero.

Our story is a family story. And the family grew. Our cousin Lu met David, fell in love and moved to Berlin. We couldn’t wait to visit. Not only because we are family (and kind of like each other) but also because we were fascinated by Germany’s beer tradition. We fell for Berlin, the people, the freedom, the Spätis. Ramiro came back for a 6 months beer course and started dreaming about opening a brewery here.

In 2020, Lu and David took a 9 month sabbatical around South America and in that summer they met the Gorillas at the Annual Hops Festival in El Bolsón, Patagonia. It was one of those sunny days when the plans of opening Gorilla Craft Beer Berlin started. Little did we know that we were gonna arrive in Europe during a Pandemic. But we will survive, like always. With the help of our new CEO and German expert David, we are now proud to announce that we have started brewing in Berlin, planning the opening of our first bar and excited to share our beer adventure with you.
