Architect Name: Martín Lejarraga Architects

Canana L.A. Brew By Martín Lejarraga _ Architects - Sheet2CANANA is located in La Aljorra, L.A., a small village in the south-east of Spain, which can be reached by roads with echoes of Los Angeles, surrounded by a landscape which resembles its palms with the hills of Santa Monica in the distance.

Canana L.A. Brew By Martín Lejarraga _ Architects - Sheet5CANANA L.A is an adventure; a beer made with attention and love in a former agricultural tools warehouse, which was built by their family and friends: the friends were masons, the father electrical installer and the godfather the carpenter. And that is why it is that way.

Canana L.A. Brew By Martín Lejarraga _ Architects - Sheet7CANANA L.A is a good beer full of interesting shades in its flavor; and a friendly bar, nice and cosy.
