This Gjulia Nostrana is a craft ale made from organic barley and hops with a very fruity nose with hints of peach and grapefruit and delicate, elegant and fruity taste made by Gjulia Brewery. This craft ale is a lady favourite and pairs brilliantly with sushi, delicate pasta and soft cheeses or just as an aperitif.
Italian beer is craft beer
, full stop.
Peroni or Moretti are not Italian breweries, despite what everyone thinks, and Birrificio Gjulia is one of the first Italian craft breweries and certainly the first craft brewery “Agricola”, farm, which means that they control the whole process, from barley to beer using the pure water coming out of Monte Mia springs. Pure water is vital to ensure a great beer.
Birrificio Gjulia is located in Friuli Venezia Gjulia and has been created by brothers Marco and Massimo Zorzettig, that after having devoted their entire lives to winemaking, they decided it was time to follow their passion, making beer, real Italian beer. All their beers are top fermented and are bottled without any filtration or pasteurisation and their range includes several craft ales, from low alcohol to more complex to organic beers including Italian grape ale, beer made with the addition of must.
