Create Your Own Paradise

Since 1924 Costa Rica’s favorite beer has been Imperial. In Costa Rica, we believe that paradise is made by people who live in harmony with their environment and with each other. Beauty. Harmony. Fulfillment. These are the qualities of paradise. They’re especially abundant in our home of Costa Rica, but they can live anywhere. If we choose. Paradise doesn’t just materialize. We make it. And it doesn’t take care of itself. We have to inspire, nurture and protect it. At Imperial, we’re committed to this way of thinking, acting and living.
