How can you possible ignore that Italy ranks 3rd place for the number of micro-breweries worldwide?
What a unique opportunity for a brewery tours Italy. The Italians especially the Tuscans, are extremely good at creating things in their own image, and craft beer is no exception. In any case, Tuscany abounds with ingredients that practically beg a good, if not great, craft beer and these local brewers have created recipes that make the best use of all of them.
In Tuscany we are able to use what we have on hand to create delicious and flavourful meals and this can also be said for our beers where they “strengthen the link with the territory” by using local products. The products the Tuscans are using are quite interesting like sapa and saffron. However, you will definitely learn more directly from the beer maker on tour.
Italians call craft beer “birra artigianale,” evoking the country’s artisan tradition. These beers tend to be small-batch, unfiltered and unpasteurised, and are mostly served cold and fizzy in bottles or from gas-powered taps. Hops are generally imported, which can push up the average price of a pint, although 2017 also saw the first native Italian hop harvest.
You can expect to find all major international beer styles on this tour: IPAs and APAs stouts and porters; steam beers, golden ales and witbier; strong dark beers and session pale ales. In addition, Tuscany’s artisan breweries are known for using native ingredients in their beers, whether Garfagnana spelt grains in the malt or chestnuts in their sweeter, more autumnal brews.
On this craft brewery tour you will visit 3 breweries. Small and big beer brewing. Run family business and companies. However, you will definitely enjoy a big variety of Birre Artigianali and learn more about their beer brewing and stories.
