Birra al Parco - Tasting of artisan beers

Edition 2019 - Saturday 12 and Sunday 13 October

The "Birra al Parco" (Beer in the Park) project, organised in the 20th century park of the Villa dei Cedri Museum, has reached its third edition! Born to pay homage to a history dating back to the nineteenth century, with the first production of craft beer in Bellinzona in 1853, the event dedicated to the production of craft beer in Ticino offers to learn more about the world of beer, its styles, and to meet fans who today give new life to a real local treasure!

The 2019 edition of "Birra al Parco" proposes to discover and taste some of the best craft beers of Swiss Italian on Saturday, October 12, while the tasting itinerary opens on Sunday, October 13 on the rest of the world with the presentation by type of beer (low fermentation beers, IPA, acid beers and IGA, and dark beers: Stout, Porter and Berely Wine) of the best brewing in the following countries of the world: Switzerland, USA, Czech Republic, Germany, Great Britain and Italy. Sunday will be enriched by the opportunity to enjoy a selection of beers accompanied by sommelier Nico De Backer.

Tasting courses on registration with the sommelier Roberto Storni will enrich the offer and will offer the opportunity for participants to better immerse themselves in the world of beer and its richness, with unique routes, held within the Tensydome.

The collaboration with the Autumn Review allows to extend for the second time the traditional presentation of cheese, bread, honey and wine to the brewing world.
