It was a real triumph at the agricultural fair for "Cap d'Ona", the oldest Catalan artisan brewery, a region best known for wines.

The Cap d'Ona brewery in Argelès-sur-Mer has collected four medals at the agriculture fair, one of which is gold.

The gold medal was awarded for the Bière Brun au Maury.
