Each year, since 1996, Brasserie Pietra pays tribute to the Fiera di a Castagna di Bucugną, in the form of a limited-edition collectors bottle.
This recalls the fact that this major Corsican event was the first to understand and show that the sweet chestnut, fruit of the patrimonial tree, is a product with a bright future. These precursors managed to enhance the value of the sweet chestnut by giving it a real role to play in the economy.
Pietra Bucugną is a 75cl silk-screened bottle with a champagne-style cork and an old-fashioned ceramic closer.
Each year since 1996, Brasserie Pietra calls on its public relations firm Agep to create the Pietra Bucugna bottle. Today there are ten collector bottles, some of which are out of stock.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Edition 2013. 75 cl bottle sealed with Cork but also with convenient bracket so that the bottle can be resealed. Amber coloured beer with white foam head. Malty aroma with sweet undertones. Taste is similar to the Pietra Amber. Hop is possible what more strongly represented in this version.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
0.75l bottle from saveur-biere. Hazy golden colour, mid-sized, creamy off-white head. Malty nose with some aromatic hops. Good malty start, also quite malty in the middle with a lot of aromatic hops tuning in. There is a touch of chestnut detectable, however it is very mild and I dont know if I would detect it, would I not know that the beer is brewed with chestnut flour. Anyway, a nice surprise.
