Darlinghurst gets to Meet the Brewer - Birra del Borgo

In 2005 the Italian village of Borgorose in the Rieti province would see the birth of craft beer like never before "Birra del Borgo"

Since then the Brewery has done so well that founder Leonardo Di Vincenzo has had to move to a bigger and better location. 

Leo was originally inspired by the English and Belgian technique of brewing craft beer, then using his PhD in biochemistry and passion for his Italian Heritage he created his own style. The result of this has landed Birra del Borgo on the international map. He has now worked with some well know names like Dogfish Brewery & more. 

Leo has recently left the Mediterranean coast of Italy and is joining us down under for a brief tour.
So on Monday February 18th join us here in 'The Louvre' (first floor) at The Local Taphouse from 7pm for our next instalment of 'Meet the Brewer'  

We will have a range of tap and bottled 'Birra del Borgo' beers available and Leo will be here to give us an insight into his methods, techniques and plans. 

There is no cost for this event, we are simply messengers in the world of craft beer.
