1 MALTING
From grain to malted barley
The barley kernels are steeped in water, left to germinate and then dried at different temperatures varying on the desired degree of roast. It’s only after the drying process that it can be called malted barley and can be used by master brewers to create beers with a wide array of colours.

FROM MALTED BARLEY TO SWEET WORT
Malted barley is milled and mixed with hot water in order to convert the starches into sugars and dextrins. The resulting liquid is called sweet wort, whereas the spent grains become cattle feeding for the local farms.

3 HOP SELECTION AND BOIL
From sweet to hopped wort
The sweet wort is boiled for about one hour. This is the stage where hops come into play, chosen from a wealth of over 300 varieties we have in nature and that carry the aromas of their countries of origin: flowers, citrus, tropical fruits, spices or herbs. The very same hop can be introduced at different steps of the boiling process: a longer boil will mainly extract the bitter notes, a shorter one will retain the brightest aromas and flavours.

4 FERMENTATION AND CONDITIONING
From wort to beer
The hot wort is cooled down and transferred into large fermentation vessels, where the yeast will convert sugars into alcohol and carbon dioxide. Once fermentation finishes we condition all our beers at cold temperatures, and add further aromatic hops to some of them to enhance their flavour profile.

From conditioning to packaging
The same beer comes in different packages to suit the most diverse times of consumption: a dinner at home experimenting with food pairings, an evening with friends down at the pub, a party al fresco.

6 DISTRIBUTION
From Valganna all over the world
Every beer must be approved by our master brewers before it can leave the brewery: we reckon this step is essential to evaluate each product without compromising on quality. After the tasting session, we distribute our beers from Valganna all over Italy and also export worldwide.
