Our first artisan beer: La Birritullera

July 14, 2017

From our organic fields of barley and spelt comes the first artisan beer of Il Borro: La Birritullera.

This name comes from a folklore group that was founded here in 1968 by Don Pasquale Mencattini, much-loved priest of the town and also a man of great culture.

On the label is a detail of an engraving by the Duke of Hamilton, published in Paris by Bequet in 1868. The elephant is associated with strength and a dominant position, the African and Asian animal represents numerous qualities such as regal power, dignity, patience, wisdom, longevity and happiness, as well as being a symbol of good fortune.

La Birritullera is a typical golden lager made with barley and spelt from Il Borro’s organic fields, with the addition of barley malt and precious hops. An unpasteurized and unfiltered beer without additives or preservatives.

This beer is fantastic with Tuscan antipasti like salami and fresh cheese, farro salad, panzanella (bread salad) and fried vegetables, and grilled pork. It’s also ideal with white pizza, focaccia and schiacciate.
