Much of the world has experienced an explosion in the birth of new craft beers and breweries in recent years. Italy has been no exception in this, and the "Birra Artigianale" movement has become one of the most exciting and rapidly expanding sectors in the country's beverage industry. Long subjected to the mass produced, uninviting products of 2 or 3 overly commercialized brands, the Italian consumer has responded in force, eagerly supporting a veritable cornucopia of small, premium quality craft brewers from the across the peninsula.
Driven by a passion and desire to create something unique, Birrificio dell' Etna is just such a brewer. Located at the base of Mt Etna and fanatically dedicated to perfection, the brewery is an artisanal producer striving to perfect top quality beers that speak to their native Sicilian terroir. Working with the finest local ingredients (including Nerello Mascalese from the volcano's slopes), the company's 2 beers represent some of the most interesting products in the international beer market today.
