ALICE THE DOG
India Pale Ale
The beers | The catalogue.
With a 100% natural process, our beer is the result of the biochemical process made with traditional ingredients from the land: water, malted barley, hops and yeast. Each stage of this process has a totally artisanal effort and dedication behind it, which rejects industrial methods. Our goal is the pursuit of a singular and quality product, coherent with the environment that surrounds it. These are the beers of our catalogue.
The Walking Coeliacs
Hoppy and wheat aromas with a herbal flitch. Golden colour with a white and creamy foam. Light body with fine mouthfeel, and medium low carbonation. His flavour begins with soft malty shades linked with a low bitterness, dry and lingering. It's fresh, easy, but with character.
First Aid Kit | 3 Elixirs for psychotherapies.

A bottle of original Medical Stout, (Imperial Stout 8.5%, 90 IBUs), another of the Svensk Vodka Stout version, (Original Medical Stout blend Svedka Vodka 11.3%, 90 IBUs) and the last the Irish Republican Stout (Original Medical Stout blend Bushmills Whisky 10%, 90 IBUs).
Wood series | The itinerants.
The Wood series are beers aged in oak barrels of all types, red wine, white wine, sweet wine, whisky, rum... We achieve a range of fermentations that are more alcoholic, acid, spontaneous and subject to time and maturing. It is a line of beers that fuses all types of styles with the character of wood and a wide range of flavours and nuances.
Saison Barrel Aged
Aromes de cereal, nous,fusta de roure,i amb una petita guspira a sofre.... De color daurat palla, amb una escuma blanca i fina, lleugera. Té una carbonatació baixa, un punt d'agulla fi, i una retenció mitjana. El seu sabor és dolç, amb tocs afruitats que es fusionen amb una amargor lleu, i que finalitzen en matissos lleugerament àcids i especiats. Cervesa dotada d'una considerable complexitat degut a la seva maduració en bóta de vi blanc, on mostra un caràcter cremòs i combina les notes de fusta, la fruita i l'àcid.
AROMAS OF FRUIT, CEREALS AND WOOD. WITH A WHITE AND CREAMY HEAD. OF GOLDEN APPEARANCE, IT HAS SWEET FLAVOURS OF MALT AND VANILLA COMBINED WITH NUANCES OF WOOD AND SLIGHTLY ACID TOUCHES. THE STRONG PRESENCE OF THE WINE TANNINS GIVE IT GREAT COMPLEXITY. IT IS A SMOOTH BUT INTENSE BEER. COMPLEX BUT VERY PLEASANT ON THE PALATE.
Cognac Barrel Aged
Aromas of COGNAC, CEREALS, OAK, WITH MARINE NOTES. IT IS DEEP BLACK WITH AMBER-RED SHADES. NOT MUCH HEAD, AND A VERY LIGHT, ALMOST INEXISTENT PRESENCE OF GAS, WITH A VERY FINE AND SLIGHTLY CARBONISED BUBBLE. SENSATION IN THE MOUTH OF BEING FULL BODIED, WITH A CREAMY TEXTURE, AND A HIGH ALCOHOLIC PERCEPTION. ITS FLAVOUR BEGINS WITH SWEET NUANCES ACCOMPANIED BY CREAMY HIGH ROASTS AND NOTES OF WOOD. THE PRESENCE OF COGNAC PROVIDES GREAT COMPLEXITY, WHICH PERSISTS IN ITS FLAVOUR IN A VERY INTENSE WAY.
AROMATIC ACETIC NOTES COMBINED WITH NOTES OF WOOD AND SALT. COPPER ORANGE IN COLOUR, AND WITH A CLOUDY APPEARANCE. IT HAS A WHITE AND LIGHT HEAD, ITS CARBONATION IS MEDIUM-LOW. THE PERCEPTION IN THE MOUTH IS LIGHT, AND ITS FLAVOUR IS DOMINATED BY ACETIC FLAVOURS THAT INVADE THE PALATE AND WHICH END IN A LIGHT BITTERNESS. THE COMPLEXITY OF THIS BEER IS HIGHLIGHTED BY THE ACID NATURE THAT RESULTS FROM THE MATURING IN WINE BARRELS.
La Calavera was founded in 2012, with its introduction within the Riembau associated work cooperative that it shares with the La Barricona restaurant, with which it maintains a gastronomic-brewing joint project. We produce craft beer. Far from industry. Close to the hops. And the malts. And their flavours and aromas.
We have a catalogue. And we also do weird stuff. And we collaborate. Because we are how we are and, above all, because we come from where we come. And we come from the mobilisations against the colonial Fifth Centenary. And we come from Rock Antimili. And we are the result of the popular cultural associations. And we are social centres. And now we make beer. Yes. And what’s more, you’ll like it.
From Monday to Friday
From 9 a.m. to 12.15 p.m.
And from 1.30 to 6 p.m.

Riembau | Associated work cooperative.
From “That’s how it goes” to “It goes how we want it to”, from the collective project, and that’s how in 2009 in Ripoll the Cooperativa Riembau SCCL was founded. And in our minds a shared goal: to take forward a project of social cooperation, in the county of Ripollès. And perhaps because we begin to go back in some things and we have been able to discover what we don’t want and what does not interest us, here we are, committed to self-organisation at work and food sovereignty… from the land to the table!
We are La Calavera and also La Barricona, the cooperative’s diner. With carefully devised menus. Both during the week and at weekends. Balanced and made according to the market, the season and the local producers. Traditional cuisine. Cooking that makes you lick you fingers. Traditional fare and combined with flavours from all over using the latest cooking techniques.
Planeta Calavera | Weird stuff.
Well yes, we make beers, and we also enjoy organising the craft beer festival (Brewtast), give guided visits around our installations and, why not, design our own weird stuff.
Brewtast is the result of the fusion of two passions: cuisine and beer. In our installations of La Barricona, during the last weekend of July, we hold a fair dedicated to craft beer. During these days we open the doors of the cooperative to different producers who set up a stand with their product and, from the restaurant, offer attendees the result of a year of tests based around the dishes we have been working on in each seasonal menu. As parallel activities we offer tasting sessions, competitions and production workshops.
