Yes, our boss and brewer Leonardo will fly to Oz in less than two weeks… but he didn’t decide to go seek his fortune elsewhere like many Italian yougn talents do… he will spend there one week for a short but busy promotional tour – with many tastings, events and meetings – that has been set up for him by our friends at Birra Italiana: we have to thank them if Italian craft beer– our and other great breweries’one – made it to down under, winning a great success!
So, this is Leonardo schedule, but if you wish more info please visit Birra Italiana website.
Sunday 17th February: Leo will join Rootstock Festival: an interesting event dedicated to sustainable food & wine (and beer!). He will be giving a Masterclass about cheese&beer pairing together with cheese expert Kristen Allan, presenting ReAle Extra with a beer-rinsed cheese.
