Video: Mid-August: let's have fun with craft beer

Are you packing your bags? Already back? Won't you leave home and are you gnawing at it while scrolling through photos of no avail in enchanting places of those you insist on calling friends? I would like to tell you that I have the solution to everything but the holidays are over, the bags are always too small for 'you never know' and friends, well, they are the ones you deserve.
In any case we can drink on a craft beer, which seems to me a good compromise. My refrigerator these days is chock full of everything that keeps sweat glands overtime.
And since we're not talking here about giving up the j oie de vivre that pervades me while I think I'll drink another one, I thought I'd browse through my favorite styles and suggest the ferragostana twozerounosei selection.
Put them in your suitcase, get lost in the memory of the vacation that was or that you never took. Above all, don't forget to stock up in case the usual invitation to an impromptu lunch arrives.
Light or amber, dry and bitter. It kills them thirsty
Pilsner - Loertis, Via Priula Brewery
The alchemical DNA belongs to the family here (that of the San Pellegrino magnesia, present?). The guys from the Via Priula brewery have their own premises in San Pellegrino Terme. Taking a leap could be the best way to enjoy this interpretation of bohemian pilsner. Trip out of town on the Orobie? Then I also tell you where to stuff yourself with grilled cheese and polenta.
Golden Ale - Blonde, Aspis Brewery
High fermentation clear, bitter and alcohol content and a nose understood by fruity and floral references summarize the sensory theme of the Blonde produced in that of Roccadaspide (SA). I would drown her with an aubergine parmigiana, what do you think?
APA - Calibro7, Perugia Beer
We have to blame American reinterpretations of English pale ales (APA, in fact) for all this brewing fervor. It was a citrus nose and a determined bitterness that made us lose our minds. This is, in short, also the sensorial theme of the delicious version proposed by Birra Perugia.
What do we match? If there is bitterness in the glass, it is good to have salinity (and maybe umami) on the plate. Tasty, possibly spiced meats and burning grills. Do you see them too?
Session IPA - Skianto, Toccalmatto
If the older sisters (IPA and American IPA) can represent a challenge after the 3rd pint (not to sweat, not to saturate the nose and palate, to stay sober, like), their version lightened in alcohol and body is a great compromise to remind us of that aromatic and bitter world without shyness.
The Session is combined with meat (again) and the right amount of ignorance. We know that in Italy, 'there is no pleasure in being intelligent'.
Do you prefer wheat beers? Do you love saison? Something sour?
Weizen - Weizen, Manerba Brewery
Evergreen stainless. This lacustrine interpretation would make weizen beers love even those who don't love them. In this period I enjoy it with panzanella. Do I have to tell you more?
Berliner weisse - Berliner Weisse, Canediguerra
I suspect they sell perforated bottles, 3, 5 degrees alcohol of goodies. Ideal for a low calorie (and high acidic) aperitif. Do you have a burrata in the fridge? Remove it from there, marry it with ox hearts and season it to taste.
Gose - Salada, Lariano Brewery
There is a hint of coriander to embellish this interpretation of Gose. And then the contribution of Sicilian salt which gives it that hint of salt typical of the style it is inspired by. If the beach snack includes raw and melon (but also raw and nectarine peach is interesting), you could try the combination with this beer.
Blanche - Seta Special, Rural
Whether it is salt or, as in this case bergamot, the reference to the sunny lands of the south is strong. If I think of the umbrella lunch break, things like arancini and pane e panelle come to mind (the song of triglycerides). I'd opt for an almost harmless basil-flavored omelette sandwich, huh?
Saison - Malombra, Endorama Brewery
And that branch of Lake Como (setting of Fogazzaro's novel that our brave seems to be inspired by) could be the perfect backdrop to properly celebrate August 15th. One of the most versatile style that my jaws have swallowed, it also supports structured dishes that do not skimp on fat. A fried fish or lake and you spent the day there.
Sour Ale - BeerBrugna, Loverbeer
We talked about it recently but I couldn't help but remind you of the beers that symbolize the concept of freshness. If you love sourness, you must have a little bit of themed acid. Should we choose a gem to place at the end of the meal perhaps? How about the BeerBrugna to drink on a cheesecake with lightly pan-fried and caramelized prunes? Or a granita with mulberries and cherries in syrup? And where do we put the trifle?
Did I make you thirsty? I almost almost that sandwich with the omelette..
BACKGROUND: The Ministry of Agriculture fined the craft brewery Almond 22 for having defined its beer on the label as “artisanal”. A law of '62 makes this practice illegal. Post from the series "the extremely slowed path of civilization". Hey, Ministry of Agriculture, deal? I want less bureaucracy. Much less. I want to call things with the […]
Ten, a hundred or a thousand times I have written in these parts that I do not melt in front of the molasses therapy of overly ceremonious waiters, but when it takes it it takes. In other words, I believe that among the indicators of maturity of a restaurant, which has just been decorated with a Michelin star, there is the bewitching blend of ability, character and […]
The shabby-chic nonconformity of the chefs with tufts and tattoos who cook at the florist in the small town of Vico Equense, in the boutique or at the newsagent. The contagious "extended play" of entertainment on the seafront of Marina d’Aequa in Seiano, with 300 and passes between chefs, pastry chefs and pizza chefs involved. The reasonable minimum donations of 15 euros to non-profit organizations participating in the event. […]
Review of the Maratonda Craft beer pub in Verona, the only pub dedicated to craft beer in the city. What to drink, how to eat, prices, photos, our opinions
A reflection on "Belgian" craft beer in Italy, over the years, after the 2019 Beer Village, and on the tastings of historic Belgian breweries, disappointing
