Water makes up more than 90% of our Toña, therefore, excellent physical-chemical and microbiological quality of the brewing water is essential. The purity of the water is guaranteed by our three deep wells, a new sanitation system and continuous lab tests.
Malt is the result of processing barley that has been cultivated specifically for the brewer’s needs.
Our Brewmasters give special attention to selecting and mixing the various varieties of barleys in order to guarantee the types of malt which guarantees the unique nature of Toña. Rice is also used, to compliment and “round” the flavor.
Hops, a plant from the Cannabinaceae family, contributes the delicate aroma and special bitter flavor to beer. Only the blossoms of the female hop plants and the finest hops from North America and Europe are used in brewing Toña.
The type of brewers yeast used is extremely important to the bouquet of the beer. It is a unicellular microorganism of the fungus family that, besides converting the fermentable sugars into alcohol and carbon dioxide, forms other substances that are responsible for the beer’s flavor and aroma.
