We are more than happy to welcome to our humble bottleshop these two geniuses in craft beer world as we’re hosting our first meet the brewers event on 19th of June – Agostino Arioli – a pioneer in the production of craft beer in Italy and a man behind Birrificio Italiano and Chris Pilkington from the most widely known Estonian microbrewery – Põhjala Brewery.
VAADIS / ON TAP:
– Põhjala Ülo – Chardonnay barrel aged Imperial Saison with gooseberries 10%
– Põhjala Graff Gadient – Rye and Apple Gose 5.8%
Collab with To Øl and BRUS. A sour rye gose brewed with spontaneously-fermented cider as mash liquor, Estonian apple juice, and three varieties of thyme.
– Põhjala Italobänger – Imperial Stout with figs, star anise, blood oranges and grape must 12.5%
– Birrificio Italiano Tipopils – Pilsner 5.2%
A flavour one can never get tired of: this is the secret… A beer of great character in its apparent simplicity, its drinkability and low alcohol content often make it impossible to avoid having “one more”.
– Birrificio Italiano Bang Bretta – Brett IPA 7.9%
IPA matured in red wine barrels from Trentino with brett. The full-bodied base beer (reminding cookies, dried apricot) supports a weave of cellar and marc notes, together with a decisive funky fingerprint. A balsamic, pervasive bitterness wraps up the sip.
– Birrificio Italiano BRQ Sultana #42-44 – Brett Ale 6.5%
“Mother” of Klanbarrique’s Wildekind, this beer was brewed and barrel-aged at the original Birrificio Italiano headquarters in Limido Comasco. Compared to Wildekind it’s slightly rounder and pleasantly wild. Technical notes: see Wildekind.
(Wildekind is Belgian-inspired 7,7% ABV ale aged in red wine barrels with brett. Thick and long-lasting, it is dominated by notes of grains and fruit (golden delicious apple) at play on a dry and lively carbonated body; ending in winey and finely spicy back aromas. Brett does the magic, adding a seductive and wild funky feel which complements the drinking experience, first sip to the last.)
Long story short – come, drink good beer and ask these guys everything you want to know! Cheers!
