Beer in Italy in the classical world
… the drink par excellence of the classical world is wine, however the Greeks and Romans knew beer well. But wine was undoubtedly the national drink, first of the republic and then of the empire. Nevertheless, not everyone shared the contempt for the barley drink: Julius Caesar, for example, in his Commentaries shows that he appreciates the << Gallic cervogia >>, but even more important for its spread was Gneo Giulio Agricola. He was governor of Britain in the first century AD, and from there he brought a certain amount of cervogia back to Rome, but above all some master brewers from the island. Thanks to him he opened a first place where Celtic beer was administered called Domus Cerevisiae.
“Beer is a liquid relic from Human prehistory and its origins are closely intertwined with the origins of civilization itself”
Beer is one of the oldest beverages in the world, but today it is brewed with the latest technologies. A beautiful fusion of history, passion and science produces a consistent and quality product. From barley to hops, from boiling to fermentation, we know that the whole process requires more than a simple passion; needs science!
