Discover Beer Itineraries in Sicily
Introducing “Journey to Sicily: Unearthing Art, Culture, and Brews!“
Discover Sicily’s hidden gems of art, culture, and natural beauty, as well as premium craft breweries with the help of Naike Mulas and Andrea Camaschella, co-authors of “Beer Tourism – A Guide for Fermenting Travelers – South and Islands” (Lswr Editions), along with Luca Pretti.
This volume is part of a series of four curated books by Luca Grandi, dedicated to beer tourism in Italy’s various macro-geographical regions: North-East, North-West, Centre, South, and Islands.
Unravel the lesser-known wonders of Italy while delving into unique microbreweries that offer innovative flavors, born from the rich heritage of Italian agri-food traditions. Each carefully crafted tourist itinerary is accompanied by recommended microbreweries, where creative beers with distinct tastes await your palate.
Two remarkable Sicilian itineraries include:
