Six years ago, in October 2013, the first batch of Letra was brewed for sale!
Over the years we have more than 100 labels launched in 4 different ranges. There have been more than 600 batches of beer produced and many national and international partnerships. In addition, 3 own spaces dedicated to craft beer: Letraria - Brewpub in Vila Verde, Letraria - Craft Beer Garden in Porto and Letraria - Craft Beer Library in Braga and 2 annual festivals dedicated to promoting beer culture: “Hopen - Braga Beer Festival” and “Letra Harvest Fest”.
- SATURDAY, OCTOBER 26 will be a day to celebrate! We will celebrate the 6th anniversary of Letra with all who love craft beer, conviviality and the flavors of Minho region!
The activities start at 2 pm with an environmental walk of free participation, aiming to live and relax by the charms of Vila Verde and proceed to clean the course. Each participant aims to fill a bag with trash they will find along the way, this initiative is promoted in partnership with “Vila Verde on the run” and “Environmental Unrest”.
At 5 pm it will be time to sing Happy Birthday, when everyone in attendance will be entitled to a slice of cake and to taste exclusively the Harvest & Friends 2019 beer brewed by the participants of the Harvest Fest Lyrics. From this moment on there will be traditional games for kids and adults. At the same time there will be beer conversations and at 6 pm the projection of the documentary: "First Round: Portuguese Craft Beer" by Catarina Neves. Towards the end of the afternoon it is time for the "Magusto com Vira à Minhota", accompanied by the concertina music and a "dance floor". At 7 pm the AESAcademy Chefs' appreciated showcooking moments begin where ground fire and traditional pots will be the stars in the makeshift outdoor kitchen. Starting at 9 pm, the musical moments are set to begin with the concert of “On the Road”, a Bracarense trio influenced by Rock, Blues and Funk from the 70's and 80's and to finish a Dj Set. It costs 10 € and includes skewered pork sandwiches (as described) and 2 beers.
