For the past ten years, the Italian craft beer industry has grown and changed while remaining largely under the radar to most visitors. Today, more than ever, beer in Italy is a serious topic. With more than 500 breweries nationwide, thousands of labels on the market, and constantly changing trends, deciphering Italian craft beer culture is no easy feat (particularly considering that most joints still serve industrial lager!). For these reasons, I began offering private beer tastings last year. Starting next month, in addition to my normal routine of private culinary and cultural tours, I will also being hosting small group beer tastings at Rome’s leading craft beer pub.

I will guide the group through a tasting of three beers, which will leave participants with a greater understanding of Italian beer history, culture, and production. Groups will be limited to 8 people. The cost is €25 per person and bookings can be made below or on the Eventbrite website. Cheers!

UPDATE (April 25): My semi-private craft beer tastings are sold out. Please contact me for info about private beer tastings.
