Ribo' is a IGA, Italian grape ale, another top fermented pale beer from our favourite brewery, this time with the addition of the must of Ribolla Gialla, a native Friulian white grape variety, hence the IGA classification.
With an intense golden-yellow colour, this craft beer offers scents of wild flowers and mineral notes to the nose and on the palate this pale ale shows the Ribolla Gialla characteristics. It is a perfect beer to drink on its own or together with appetisers and pizzas.
This craft beer like all others from Gjulia Brewery, it uses own produced malt and it is secondarily fermented and aged in bottle, non filtered or pasteurized, therefore presents natural sediments.
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.
