To all lovers of craft beer. From Friday 21st to Sunday 23rd September the Visarno Racecourse in Florence turns into the Beer Craft Arena, three days of delicacies to taste, discover and experiment.

Admission is free and as in previous, crowded, editions, Beer Craft Arena also offers a selected proposal of street food, vintage market and DJ set.

A space is dedicated to Franconia - the German region with the highest number of breweries, home of the brewing art - entrusted to Manuele Colonna, manager of the transterverino pub "But you came to fa" and author of the book "Beer in Franconia" , while Sour Corner, managed by Diorama and Bere Buona Birra, is not lacking for fans of sour beers.

And we come to the stars of the event, the 10 craft breweries selected for this edition of Beer Craft Arena: from Montemurlo (Prato) the Badalà Brewery, which with "Épicé" and "Storter" has won a first and third prize in the Beer year 2018. From Milan the beer-firm Muttnik, also among the beer award winners of the year 2018 with "Bolik", "Laika" and "Strelka".

From the hills of the Val d'Orcia the Brasseria della Fonte: barley and hops are grown on the farm and brewed with spring water. From Lucca all the experience of the Brùton brewery, among the pioneers of brewing art in Tuscany. From Bassano Romano the Hilltop Brewery, founded by an Anglo-Irish family. From the capitoline campaigns also Jungle Juice Brewing and Ritual Lab, recent brands that is being appreciated abroad.

From Brescia the "irreverent beers" - ipse dixit - of No Tomorrow, awarded the past year for the "Hop'n'hell" stout. Among the emerging brewers 2018 there is Stefano Simonelli of the Vetra brewery, while from the Austrian Styria comes the charismatic Karl Karigl of Blakstoc, with ciders and beers. We will all meet them at the Beer Craft Arena.
