Cerveza Nao is the brainchild of Miguel Lasso, a local of the Island who in 2016 set up his state-of-the-art brewery and brew pub in a refurbished warehouse in the old fishing district of Arrecife. After owning a successful marketing and advertising business, he sold out and combined his passion of marketing and great beer! Since 2016 his project has gone from strength to strength, driven by the quality of his award-winning beers and his drive to put local craft beer into the mainstream in the Canary Islands. Never scared to experiment and collaborate, the product range has evolved and changed over recent years. In the past year Miguel has successfully collaborated with UK brewery Mondo Brewing, both here on Lanzarote and back in London. As an Island in the middle of the Atlantic, nothing is straightforward in Lanzarote and that is the same inside the brewery. The brewing water is filtered and remineralised seawater and to give an additional Canarian twist, local unmalted grain is added alongside the malt in all the beers to add to the persistent head characteristics.
