HISTORY OF BEER IN COIMBRA
From the early 1800´s until 1924 we have several examples of brewing in a small scale, like for example small businesses.
From 1924 until 1934, there was a time of industrialization, and this was a time of fast growing on the demand, of the beer of Coimbra´s Brewery called “Fábrica de Cerveja de Coimbra”. It was located where it is today the Ibis hotel and “Galerias Topázio”, in Avenida Navarro. A very interesting detail was the oppened fermentation tanks they had, and the beer selling spot at the Brewery known as “Cervejaria da Fábrica”.
From 1934 until 1959 was the time of mergers, Coimbra´s Brewery Company made part of a movement with three other Breweries, to create one of the largest Brewery groups of Portugal called Sociedade Central de Cervejas. They kept its decision making authonomy, due to a long tradition on brewing, and its excelent products such as the brands “Topázio” and “Onix”.
4.º 1959- XXI Century
From 1959 until today, Coimbra´s Brewery changed location inside the city to a new plant inaugurated in 1959 at “Loreto”. The building still exists today, it´s considered Industrial Heritage, it has been abandoned for many years, but today is being restored to be a plant for a pharmaceutical plant, where there will also be a tribute to Coimbra´s Beer Tradition.
5.º Today | Currency
Today there is a 5th stage at Coimbra´s Beer History, carried on by Praxis, a Microbrewery that opened in 2006, after a long process of licensing, located at a very historical site of the city called Sta. Clara, next to Quinta das Lágrimas. Its production started with “The Special Beers”, being today the Coimbra´s Beer Tradition Keeper, for all the Heritage of a one and a half century. Praxis has a brand new facitlity with the last technologies available since the Industrial Revolution, but this will be a future story…
