What we are giving you here today is instead a list of three microbrews that are amongst the most appreciated in the country, and rarely known outside of Italy. Our advice is to give them a try during your stay in the most beautiful country in the world.

Montegioco Garbagnina: this strong ale with cherry runs at 5.3% ABV and is manufactured in Montegioco, Piedmont. It highlights the typical Bella di Garbagna cherry, a local product of the Alessandria area and is a medium-bodied beer with a soft mouthfeel. This very juicy and crushable beer offers mild flavors of malt and wheat supported by a slightly acid cherry flavor.

Birrificio del Ducato Baciami Lipsia: made in Soragna, in the beautiful region of Emilia Romagna, this 4.5% ABV Italian Göse Sour is is a blend of barrels that are 9 months old (and inoculated with lactobacillus) and a newer beer that is brewed with Himalayan pink salt. The result is definitely crisp, citric and slightly salty in the background. Very soft, is definitely a beer that needs to be tasted at least once.

LoverBeer BeerBera: this wild fermented ale with Barbera grapes fermented in Barbera wine barrels is made in Turin, Piedmont, and boasts an impressive 8.0% ABV. It’s a sour beer similar to Belgian Lambic but offers a distinctive Italian twist thanks to the addition of Barbera, one of the most famous wines in the country. The result is a purplish beer that tastes light, sour and extremely refreshing, with a prominent fruity flavor of wine. You will fall in love with it.
