“There is nothing better than knowing that someone’s day just got better because they are having a Pato beer.”
To provide high quality craft beer in classic styles; focusing on flavor over novelty. The hallmark of a Pato beer is the desire to drink another one.
Pato Brewing was born out of the selfish desire to drink better beer. Craft beer was just starting to gain a toehold in Lisbon but was not generally available in Cascais. The usual choice between two industrial lagers was the only option. We wanted more flavorable and interesting beer to drink; so, we decided to try our hand at making it ourselves. We undertook a self-taught crash course in brewing in the garage on a small home brewing kit. After much experimentation and a few tastings with family and friends we decided we had a recipe good enough to share. Three of those initial test recipes have eventually made it into our repertoire.
The three founders brought a wide range of experience to the craft beer business; along with a love of good food and drink. From its inception Pato Brewing has prided itself on providing tasty, quality beer and professional service to all our customers.
