Villaggio della Birra 2018

13° Ed. 7/9 September. Buonconvento.Toscana

Villaggio Barcellona Edition 2018

First Edition. Barcellona. 20/21 October

Villaggio della Birra. International Festival of small breweries.
Buonconvento: one of the most beautiful villages of Italy. At 25 km. from Siena, located in the middle of the Crete Senesi, this ancient village lies on the gentle hills of the Val d'Arbia, one of the most beautiful places in Tuscany. For this reason it is "a happy, lucky place" as the Latin etymology of the name suggests (bonum Conventum): beauty, history and culture are at every corner of this land and in every stone of the ancient village. A village that was born and developed along the Via Cassia, the ancient Via Francigena that led pilgrims from Canterbury to Rome, the traces of the passage which you can still recognize today.

The Villaggio della Birra was set up in 2006 designed to juxtapose, in a "special" location and (provocatively) in the middle of a wine growing region, the brewing industry of two countries, Belgium and Italy, the former the emblem of centuries-old tradition, and the latter one of the most important exponents of the "rebirth" of craft beer in Europe. Having become an international reference point, the Festival selects and invites only those producers that with their produce, are contributing to enriching the quality of the production of the craft beer world, people who, first of all, have already made us feel their extreme humanity during these years. Brewmasters will for two days running set up shop in a large heated big top to serve visitors a taste of their brews in a very friendly atmosphere.

It takes many months (and patience!) to organise but when the three-day festival draws to an end, it always leave a drop of nostalgia, because we know that we will have to wait another 365 days to experience it again. This year, we can wait any longer: we are preparing a series of events, both in Italy and abroad, to make the wait less ... bitter! #notjustafestival

#notjustafestival
The Village is a real festival, not just a trade show, launched to celebrate our friendship with many Belgian brewers and then extended to other brewers, as happens in true friendships. Our selection starts from this, accompanied by a thorough consideration of the production quality of the individual Brewers, which, like every year, will be a pleasure for you to..try.

    "Speaking of civilization"

    Our Culture: "Speaking of civilization". At the village the only way to do it, is, to sit (or even stand in a quiet corner) and more or less speak pleasantly, especially about beer and beers but also about this and that. This is a dimension that many people have pointed out to us, with obvious pleasure.

    This is one of the added values that people who attend the village have given this event/occurance, increasingly characterized by the people attending, as well as the beers that you can find. We would be right to say, completing the phrase that belongs to someone else, that "good people drink good beer", which, in turn, makes people really good people.

    2° Campi Di Birra - Rifermentazioni | 4/6 Maggio

    "Ancestrale" è una parola importante: rimanda all'antichità, ad usi e saperi lontani, si riferisce a qualcosa che appartiene agli avi. E' il patrimonio di conoscenze che fa parte del dna di ciascuno, è la ricchezza vera di un popolo; difficile rinunciare ad attingervi.
