Apulia, Italy. Birra del Gargano is a gypsy brewing project inspired by the Gargano peninsula and its world known citrus fruits, local grains, flowers and spices. Every beer is unique and has been created by the collaboration between three different brewers and Vincenzo Ottaviano. Each beer represents a connection and they are created with one simple principle in mind: to hold the spirit of summer and the emotions of a territory in a bottle of fresh brew
Vincenzo Ottaviano has a degree in Gastronomical Science from the University of Parma and his professional journey has always been centered around quality food and beverages. He runs the well known Al Trabucco da Mimì restaurant in Peschici. This family-run restaurant is situated on one of the most spectacular tracts of coastline in the Gargano national Park.
He began his brewing education whilst collaborating with Birra Baladin a celebrated brewery from the Langhe region, in Piemonte. Passionate about travel and surf, always seeking new adventures, waves and great beers. Vincenzo has created over the years many exciting friendships and collaborations with various brewers that has inspired his personal vision of the beer brewing process.
Two of the beers, Bianca and Saison, are inspired by the Belgium tradition. The third, is inspired by the oldest German beer style Gose. The beers are produced seasonally, all are bottle conditioned, unpasteurised and unfiltered.
Vincenzo’s love for his territory shines through his beers, with every sip you drink all the aromas and colors of GArgano, one of the most beautiful wild areas in Italy!
So all that remains is to toast!
