This is the best beer tour of Italy led by the authors of the only book about the Italian craft beer movement (Italy: Beer Country). These relationships are ones we have cultivated since 2012 with annual visits, tours and shared meals. The most important value we offer is one of uniqueness, rarity and intimacy. Many of the breweries we are visiting are providing tours and tastings solely for you - something they don't normally offer to the public.
Be one of the few to experience a scene so young not many are aware it exists. Meet influential pioneers and tour their breweries seeing firsthand how they are changing, not only Italian history, but beer history.
Learn, taste and embrace the terroir, the Italian brewer’s crucial ingredient. This is the frontier of brewing. Let the authors of the book show you the Italy you didn't know existed.
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. Italy: Beer Country is the first written history of this evolving, creative craft beer movement.
“A stellar handbook of Italian craft brewing. Lots of color artwork enhances this charming and enjoyable ramble through an ancient land with a new tradition–craft beer!"
