Products and sponsorshipEdit

Its best known beer products include the following four:

  • Estrella Damm, formerly "Estrella Dorada", a pale beer, one of the most popular beers in the Barcelona area. It has been brewed since 1876. Its bottles and caps used to display a characteristic golden star on white ground. Now the star on the cans is on a red background.
  • Voll-Damm imitates a German-style Märzen beer. It has more body and a higher alcohol content than Estrella. Its dark-green coloured labels display writing in the Gothic script.
  • Xibeca is a low-alcohol grade table-beer coming in large, low-priced one-liter bottles. "Xibeca" was meant to be consumed along with meals, as a cheap substitute for red table wine when the prices of table wines rose at the end of the 1960s. It was very popular among the low-middle class in Catalonia during the 1970s.
  • Estrella Levante is a pilsner lager produced in Espinardo, Murcia. It has been brewed since 1963.

Other Damm products include Inedit, Bock Damm, Free-Damm, A.K. Damm, among others. Damm also produces a range of Gluten-reduced beers under the Daura label, including a Lager and a Märzen.

During the heyday of baseball in Spain in the 1950s and 1960s, Damm sponsored a local baseball team, Picadero Damm. During the 1960s, Damm was also known for marketing its beer at all members of the family, including children.[1]
