La Saracena

Born from the experimental nature of Birra del Borgo, it is a beer with a very high percentage of Tartaric Buckwheat. The buckwheat is malted by a small malt house and cut with barley and “Grano Senatore Cappelli”. La Saracena is brewed to exploit the nutritional value and the characteristic aroma of this interesting plant. With a golden color and slightly hazed, it has a good clear and compact foam. It releases pleasant scents of corn and yeast, with an explosion of herbaceous recalls, showing an impressive freshness and drinkability.

Our Beers

Our most appreciated and well-known beers, which are now classics in Birra del Borgo’s production.

These are the brews we love the most: the recipes that have made Birra del Borgo famous all over the world! They include PASSION as a key element, which we consider an essential ingredient. We put a piece of our HEART into each one of the classic beers.
Enjoy the passion with us.

Things ain’t what they used to be or, as we say in Italy, there are no more middle seasons.

But, luckily enough, there are our Seasonal beers. Special products, that have been created particularly for the different times of the year, but that are great to drink everytime! Do you want to enhance the lovely spring’s smell? Are you looking for relief from the summer heat? Do you need to be cuddled when fall comes? Do you want to excape the Christmas Blue? Each of our Seasonal could be the right answer.

The Bizarres are our most peculiar beers, sometime definititely experimental and hard to define.

We brew them once per year, one for every month, in a restricted quantity and with different packaging: bottles, vats and casks. Twelve completely different oeuvres, each of them with a recipe that shares the same, extraordinary inventiveness.
