We will show you part of our barley crops and organic hops, we will show you the best agricultural practices we use, the different phases of the crop, how to train the hops, what treatments we give them, how we reproduce the plants. And if you like, you will even be able to buy some of our hop plants.
The hops are harvested between the end of August and the beginning of September and the barley, at the beginning of July.
In the case of barley, the harvester that does the harvesting is rented, while for the hops we have our own machinery. If you would like to see the harvesting of our ingredients and participate in it, you would be best advised to come at these times.
The ingredients we grow need to be treated after harvesting so that they are suitable for producing beer. You can see our hop dryers and our maltings, all of which use renewable energy (biomass).
When they hops are dry, they are pressed into pellets or vacuum packed for better storage. In the case of the malt, it is stored in 25-kg packages. If you want, you will be able to buy any of our products.
To finish the production circle of ingredients at Lo Vilot, we have a biological reactor to propagate yeast.
There, we multiply the different yeast stocks we use for each of the varieties of beer that we produce, reusing them and reproducing them efficiently.
At the brewery, we offer free tasting of one of our beers.
However, if you would like to taste all of them you can also do so, as we organise tastings, appetizers and pairings of 3, 6 and 9 different types of beer. Please ask about prices and modalities privately.
