This is not a festival like the others, you know that already. If you want a watery beer or a cocktail with an umbrella, you’re in the wrong place.
Malastrana: -NEW IN 2017- This year Montelago is changing its stock beer, turning to the fine tradition of Prague. Malastrana is a product of Bohemia’s centuries-old beer culture, where producing beer means producing culture.
Guinness: -NEW IN 2017- Many people have said: “It’s not a true Celtic festival without Guinness”. Now they will be content – from this year, the historic Irish stout will be part of the Montelago beer family.
Montelago Beers: In collaboration with the Il Mastio brewery of Urbisaglia, we offer our two favourite daughters, Litha – gold medal winner at the Brussels international Beer Challenge in Antwerp and the Barcelona Beer Festival – and Mabon. We like to make things in-house.
Il Mastio of Urbisaglia produces only high quality beers, made in accordance with the oldest brewery traditions, combining scrupulous research of high-quality raw materials with an ideal environment using the most advanced technology. All beers are unpasteurized, highly fermented and unfiltered.

Mead, cider & new Montelago drinks: Who can resist the Celtic style drinks produced for Montelago by the farm Le Torri of Potenza Picena in Macerata province? Back by popular demand are Montelago mead – ancient nectar of the Gods and magic kilt-igniting potion – and Montelago cider derived from the alcoholic fermentation of apples. But there’s more: Valhalla, Valeriooo & Mortimer McGrave are three spicy new drinks based on mead.
