Pietra, the chestnut beer
Beer of the land and nature
PIETRA is a specialty beer, of low fermentation.
Using traditional methods it is brewed from selected malts and chestnut flour.
The chestnuts used come from the most beautiful and highest chestnut grove in Europe, located in the Castagniccia, at an altitude of over 1,000 meters.
Every autumn the fruit is hand-picked, transported down the hill on donkeys and sorted by hand. This guarantees flour of a very high quality, from a totally natural environment.
Highly fermentable, chestnut flour has an excellent impact on the quality of the head and gives beer its beautiful coloring. Mixed into the malt during the mashing process, the chestnut flour is a prime ingredient and not just a flavoring.
This recipe, unique in the world, gives PIETRA its conflicting taste accentuating a lingering subtle bitterness.
Powerful and delicate, robust and smooth, Pietra has a 6% alcohol content. It displays a beautiful amber color, an intense chestnut head, dense and creamy, making the pleasure of tasting it all the more enjoyable. Show Less
