CRAFT BEER IN ITALY
The first Italian breweries were established in the 1980s, when craft beer was still unknown, and there were only a few industrial breweries belonging to multinational companies in the area. In the mid-1990s, the first Italian craft breweries were born, confirming themselves over the years as pioneers and points of reference in the production of craft beer. In recent years, craft beer has taken off in Italy and today, there are more than 700 breweries, producing more than 500,000 hectolitres of beer.
