June 1 through June 4 the Municipal Villa in Borgorose will be hosting again the “Birra del Borgo” day with music, food, beers, special previews and entertainment for the kids. You can find the location on Google Maps, it’s that green triangle between Via delle Ville and Via San Francesco. Yeah, that’s it! Other activities will also take place in both the New and the Old Brewery. The event will develop in 4 days during which friends, producers, partners, musicians, cooks, fans and simple bystanders will gather to meet and to enjoy every single minute of it. More than 130 drafts from all over the world, among which 12 exclusive previews for the Festival and 30 “Birra del Borgo” produced beers, over 30 Italian breweries and a selection of foreign beers branded Beerfellas will give voice to the first aim of the event: being a place open to everybody, a hymn to the sense of aggregation and to quality beer. Fans will be able to join several meetings on beer and food where they will share ideas and news on the brewing scene, and will taste usual and unusual gastronomic combinations.
Following are the answers to the most frequently asked questions:
