Can’t wait for Duchessic!

Time goes faster… It seems only yesterday, we were celebrating the Brewery’s eight birthday , hoping for one tiny ray of sunshine – luckily we had it! – and here we are in the middle of July, sweating under the summer sunlight! So, it should be the right time to (re)introduce you our monthly Bizarre Beer, Duchessic. Our (quite unusual)  “collaboration beer” with Brasserie Cantillon is…

What if ReAle was…ReAlt?!

Just as it happened last year, the day after our big party was no break for us! Joined by a small but fierce group of beer lovers, we performed the second step of the “What if ReAle was born in…” project! This year’s guest was Andreas Gaenstaller, a great German brewer who came to visit us with his wife Manuela from Bamberg (you can see them in the picture together with our brewer Andrea). Those who attended the party could taste his fantastic beers and they know what we are talking about! So, here you can find some more details about ReAlt, that is What if ReAle was born in… Bamberg!

Let’s start with Prunus!

Brand new year… brand new (Bizzarra) beer! Just like we do every year since a while, also in 2013 we will present the new calendar for our most experimental and peculiar beers, one for each month of the year. As usual, we will introduce some new beer – or some old beer we go back in love for – and we will say goodbye (at least…

Code name: Vespa!

In this case, Vespa is not the scooter, but the insect! Do you consider waps and hornets as annoying and useless creatures, whose only aim is ruining our summer barbeques? Well, this time you could change your mind. Beside being very important to the environment, just like the bees, we should also thank those insects for preserving the wine (and…

Latest brews at Borgorose!

We’ve been brewing a lot of new stuff lately, so now time has come to draw some conclusions  and tell you something about what came out from our latest collaboration brews! Some of them has already been officially presented – Reale in Kilt and Etrusca – while one will be only available in UK until 11/11 – we’re talking about Tutto…

Maledetta… damn goood!

One of the few good things about September? Think about Maledetta, this month’s Bizzarra: a beer you will hardly resist, starting with its name! It was born to pay tribute to the Modigliani cigar – created in 2010 and dedicated to the Tuscan “maudit” artist – with which it shares the round, intense and aromatic taste. Maledettais a Belgian Ale which is meant…

June goes pink with Rubus!

Summer is almost here and everything start looking pink… thanks to Rubus, too! Our June Bizzarra is a raspberries Spiced Ale born from a romance between Duchessa – our elegant and refreshing spelt beer  –  and Rubus idaeus fruits, that is to say  the flavorsome red berries with their sweet&sour taste.   Adding the whole fruits to the beer – about 100 grams per…

So, it’s seven!

Our May’s Bizzarra definetely is a peculiar beer  and one among the most waited for as it’s the special recipe – a twist on our best selling ReAle – to celebrate the brewery’s anniversary! And just as it happens every year, ReAle Settimo Anniversario  also means BdB Day! Those who will attend the party will have the chance to taste it along with many other…

Pearls for pigs, a real gem!

Perle ai Porci – Pearls for pigs – is our March’s Bizzarra. Inspired by the Nordic tradition, it is a dark coloured stout. During the brew we added 45 kilos of fresh oysters with their shell and this year we also used a brand new “marine” ingredient, just to give the beer a more Italian taste! It was 20 kilos of Roman Coastline Tellina, SlowFood…

Febbruary, c’est Scik!

ere in Italy, February is one of the coldest months fo the year… as a matter of fact, yesterday it snowed a lot in Borgorose! But the new month also brings something good for us: the new Bizzarra, our Scik Pils! Birra del Borgo’s own interpretation of the classic Czech pilsner. Not so classic the generous use of American hops –…
