Festa della Birra

Did you miss your chance to get tickets to this year's Brewer's Festival? (You only had about 11 minutes) Don't feel like spending upwards of $70 on eBay for something that used to be $30? We feel your pain. Which is why we went ahead and tracked down a bunch of beer from many of the best craft breweries all across Italy! 

We've known for a while, but maybe you weren't aware that Italy has one of the fastest growing craft beer cultures in the world. With just over 40 microbreweries in 2005, brewing culture has exploded in Italy over the last few years, now boasting over 600 microbreweries. 

For the cost of $30 per person, we'll be tasting 8 very unique brews, most of which are very rare and difficult to obtain in the States. Each taste will be a 3 oz. pour and the cost will include a full 12 oz. pour from one of the four featured craft Italian draft lines. Our bar staff will be around the whole time to talk about each of the unique beers and their breweries. Of course snacks and awesome music are included. 

To reserve a spot, contact events@pizzeriaverita.com or call (802) 489-5644. Sign up ASAP as there is limited availability.
