The brewery was established in 2007 and has been based at its present headquarters in Rivoli, which also functions as a point of sale, since 2013. Brewmaster Giuseppe Piovano follows the principle of clean, not overly complex craft beers that are nonetheless pleasantly drinkable without recourse to filtering and pasteurisation. He produces a range of 14 high- and low-fermentation beers. Flavoured with chestnut honey, Alma is a Special Ale, moderately bitter with a malted after taste. The brewery’s pièce de resistance is Dorita, a low-fermentation blonde Pils. Its low alcohol content (4.5°), light but intense body and hoppy, vegetal notes make it the ideal tipple for anyone keen to discover the world of craft beers. The brewery’s latest creation is Divina, an IGA, or Italian Grape Ale, made with Moscato grape must, which has an alcohol content of 8.5°. It combines the fresh fruit of Moscato wine with a final note of bitterness that makes it ideal as an aperitif or at the table with white meats and pastries.
