Villaggio della Birra 2013


The eighth edition of the Festival of Small breweries will take place on September 7th and 8th 2013. This year, the Festival breathes Europe

Amongst the sweet rolling hills of the Siennese countryside, rises the village of Bibbiano - not more than a couple of houses. It is in the direct neighbourhood of Buonconvento, in a valley that has been an ongoing inspiration for poets and painters. This year, however, it will not only be the enchanting landscape that will astonish the traveller, fortunate enough to pass by, but as much its inhabitants: brewmasters from Belgium and Italy that proudly will display their knowledge and products for him. Beerexperts and artists alike will transform the little hamlet into a lively Village of the Beer. The result will be an unforgettable trail, that will enable both the passionate as the curious, fortuitous amateur of beer to explore the traditional artisanal beers from Belgium, as well as from the vivacious Italian culture. The Village of the Beer will take place on September 7th and 8th 2013.

Here we are some of the best brewers of Europe!

After purchasing a token, one will be able to taste artisanal beers, try out dishes, based on beer, and compare one’s own impressions with those of experts in sensory workshops.... Village of the Beer is an all-round, 360° experience - meaning space for homebrewers, for a beershop, for gastronomical stalls, live music and artistic exhibitions...
