The "Villaggio della Birra" (Beer Village) 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. 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. 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.
The formula, for the visitor, is always the same: you simply buy the glass in glass and tokens for tasting to "to advance" in this fantastic and often surprising brewing journey. The same tokens (at the Village Beer "currency" is not made up by money, but by tokens) are used to also dive into the second ... section of the village: next to beer, in fact, the other great protagonist in the Village is the quality food, reflected in its many shades, prepared and proposed by different "actors".

It is useless for us to tell the sensations, the feelings, and the atmosphere of the festival to someone that has never been there. This can't be done by typing on a pc's keyboard. We can't even attempt to give the faintest idea of what it really is, and what it means for us. #villaggiodellabirra2019 to be #notjustafestival .
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.
