Style: Traditional Ale
Format: 330ml Bottle
Leo, Teo and Sam went in search of the origin of beer, recreating a daring recipe inspired by the ancient fermented beverages. Using common ingredients based on archaeological digs every brewery chose a different method of fermentation. We did in in large earthenware jars, similar to those found at the ancient Etruscan sites.
Using ingredients found at archeological sites (different cereals, hazelnuts, raisins, pomegranate, resins, honey), this project was supervised by Patrick McGovern (University of Pennsylvania). At Birra Del Borgo the beer is fermenting in clay amphorae (pots).
