The Cruzcampo Brewery is considered to be the biggest beer producer in Spain. It was founded in 1904 by Roberto Osborne and Agustin Osborne in Seville. The brewery takes its name from La Cruz del Campo (The Cross of the Field), where the first factory was built and still stands today next to the new brewery in Seville. Cruzcampo can be found anywhere in Spain, but it is in Andalusia where it is most consumed. It has breweries in Seville, Madrid, Valencia, Jaen and Arano. The current logo has been used since 1926 and is the figure of Gambrinus, who is often referred to as the patron Saint of Beer. Before 1926 the logo was the original cross in the field. The brewery was sold to Guinness in 1991, nowadays it is part of the Heineken corporation who bought it from Guinness (Diageo) in 1999.
