Today, twelve years since it was established, the Birrificio Pinerolese micro-brewery hasn’t changed its production philosophy: hence high-quality ingredients and rigorous production and aging processes. It’s thanks to the passion and experimentation of Michele Santi – who has also involved Mario and Beppe Allasia in the business – that Birrificio Pinerolese is a splendid ongoing concern, producing 200 hl of beer every year. One that we feel obliged to mention is Dike, a double-malt blonde ale flavoured with Slow Food Presidium heirloom Piedmontese apples. It is named after the Greek goddess of justice and evokes the respect we owe to local growers. In the latest Slow Food beer guide, Birre d’Italia 2021, it received a special mention, while the British-inspired high-fermentation red Ker, was named an ‘Everyday Beer’. The range is rounded off by Kefi, a wheat beer, Nux, a Belgian ale with the addition of buckwheat, Sagiada, a dark ale flavoured with Domori chocolate, the easy-drinking, thirst-quenching Kalè, and the trendsetting Magheia, an IGA fermented with grape must from the L’Autin cellar in Barge.
The beers are on sale at Remembeer on Piazza San Donato in Pinerolo and in a number of local pubs and restaurants.
