Welcome to Mira brewery, home to the famous two-headed chimera and curiosity cabinet of the Arcachon Bay. Here you will learn about our history (which is fascinating, to say the least), our ideas (only the brilliant ones), and our projects (countless of course). You will then have a look at our beers and explore the very essence of Mira: a natural beer, representing the region’s atmosphere and its creators’ imagination.
Enjoy the Mira-cle!
Here is our humble collection of curiosities. Lagers, white beers, and pale ales, are brought together to offer our best selection to zythophiles with a passion to match our own.
This year too, Mira is offering its Christmas beer! The improved recipe will fill you with happiness thanks to its heart-warming spices: cinnamon, anise, nutmeg, ginger… an explosion of heady flavours – to be consumed in moderation though! – which reminds that of our childhood gingerbread. Shiny as a gem with its warm amber colour, sparkling and curious as the two-headed chimera’s eyes looking at her first Mira, this beer is your perfect choice while waiting patiently for Santa …
What about leaving one bottle by the Christmas tree for him to remember your place?
One day, while they were travelling together through caribous in Northern Canada, Jacques and Aurélien decided to start a project together. They had two different possibilities. The first one was to make the most of their musical talents, write an interplanetary hit and get lost in the star system. The other one was to open a micro-brewery back home, in the Arcachon Bay. Then they could reinvent beer and sip some pints in the comfort of their own pub. The charts being occupied by people of unquestionable musical genius – we won’t give names as we don’t kiss and tell – our two young businessmen chose to return to their home region to take full advantage of the local resources.
That is how MIRA brewery came to life in 2015 in La Teste-de-Buch. Its name comes from the Latin mirabilia, meaning “a marvel.” And that’s it, eh?
