Mahou San Miguel is born
Mahou acquires San Miguel, a company that was founded in Manila in 1890 and which had been established in Spain since 1957. Thus the first 100% Spanish owned beer company is created:
Mahou San Miguel.
Construction begins at the Alovera Brewery
Work begins at our brewing centre in Alovera (Guadalajara), a project that involves the most modern industrial techniques at that time. That same year Laiker is launched, today's alcohol-free Mahou.
Launch of Mahou Cinco Estrellas
In order to satisfy the most discerning palates, Mahou Cinco Estrellas, our flagship brand, is launched. A high quality and extremely popular product, characterised by its aroma and character.
Introduction of draft beer dispensing systems
The installation of modern beer dispensing and refrigeration systems increases the sales of draft beer. It is worth noting here that Mahou was the first Spanish company to introduce aluminium barrels, replacing wooden ones.
First beer brewed at Paseo Imperial
On the 15th May, 1962 – feast day of Saint Isidore, the farmer - the first batch of beer is brewed at the new factory. Designed to produce 500,000 hectolitres annually, it was already producing
one million by 1970.
Construction of the Paseo Imperial Brewery
The Amaniel brewery could not meet the growing demand so construction of a new production centre begins in the Paseo Imperial, in what was then the outskirts of Madrid. The old brewery stops activities three years later.
Hijos de Casimiro Mahou becomes Mahou, S.A.
After the difficult post-war years, Mahou experienced a spectacular revival and in 1957 it became a public limited company under the current name of Mahou, S.A.
Mahou beer is brewed for the first time at the Amaniel Brewery
On the 1st February 1891, the brewing of beer begins at the production centre in Amaniel Street in Madrid; construction had taken just over a year. The technology used then was
mostly of German origin.
"Hijos de Casimiro Mahou" is founded
Our origin is in Madrid, where the siblings Alfredo, Enrique, Luis and Carolina Mahou Solana establish the company "Hijos de Casimiro Mahou", dedicated to the production of beer and ice.
