The birth of craft beer in Italy
The origins of craft beer are very ancient, with roots dating back to around the 5th millennium BC, when the Sumerians, Egyptians and Babylonians were the main producers.
Until the middle of the 19th century, beer in Italy was consumed only by connoisseurs, as wine was the main drink in our country. Its production was therefore limited to a few small workshops.
It was not until the 1960s that beer became a widely consumed product.
Today, Italy ranks fourth in Europe in terms of the number of breweries and boasts the best craft beers in the world.
What is the difference between craft and industrial beer?
Obviously beer is one of those products that is very much in the mainstream, but let's see how craft beer differs from industrial beer:
- Ingredients: Master brewers choose ingredients of much higher quality than those used in industry, starting with hops, malt, yeast, etc.
- Production methods: Craft beer is not microfiltered or pasteurised, which makes it cloudier than industrial beer, which is clearer.
- Shelf life: Craft beer is considered a 'fresh' product and should be consumed within the short time it is bottled.
