Beer in Italian culture has been sparse. It’s also what has helped it blossom. With little beer history to speak of, there hasn’t been any barrier to the brewer’s creativity. In all of Italy’s history there are only a few notable contributions to beer. Pliny the Elder named the plant vital to modern beer-making, hops. The association of pizza with beer derives from Italy. However, Italy’s impact on beer pretty much ends there, until 1996 when three new breweries opened.

We will visit these three influential pioneers where you will have a chance to meet the brewers who are changing, not only Italian beer history, but world beer history. While Belgium may hold the status as the greatest beer making country in the world, Italy has become the most interesting. And yet, this scene is so young few are aware it exists.

Learn, breathe and embrace the terroir, the Italian brewer’s crucial ingredient. Taste the air that carries the anecdote that can’t be entirely bottled or packaged. This is still the frontier of brewing. Come see an Italy as new to them as it is to you.

You will have exclusive access to breweries not opened to the public and the chance to speak to some of the leaders of this young and up-and-coming movement. Be a witness to the most important beer frontier in the world.

You will stay at four and five star hotels. Nearly all your meals and beer samples are covered. You won’t have to worry about a thing, just sit back, relax and take in the Italy few know and even fewer have experienced.

In 1996, a handful of men inspired a crusade—the Italian craft beer movement.
Italy: Beer Country presents the movement’s humble roots and the passionate brewers whose persistent, dogged determination allowed them to overcome cultural bias, low expectations, and Italy’s infuriating taxes, to forge what has become Europe’s most vibrant beer scene.

From less than 20 Microbreweries in 2001, the movement has grown to over 800 in 2015. Italy: Beer Country is the first written history of this evolving, creative craft beer scene. Drawing on more than 20 years of experience working at the world-famous Falling Rock Tap House in Denver, Colorado, Paul Vismara and Bryan Jansing present a fascinating look at the most interesting beer country in the world—one that combines the traditional beer cultures of Europe with the unique Italian touch.
