Agostino Arioli is a craft brewer and now continuing to serve time as an accused criminal. While this may be of passive interest to most of you, his customers aren't likely to dismiss Agostino's crimes against Italian beer drinkers. As a result his brewpub, Birrificio Italiano, in Lurago Marinone (a suburban area of Como) produced over 700 hl of craft brewed lagers for his packed brewpub last year. His customers directly accuse him of his crime, "You are a criminal Agostino. I can not drink any other beer but yours now." Fiera di Rimini, a trade fair company (and producers of Pianeta Birra (Planet Beer) and the Italian Microbrewers Association (Unionbirrai Microbirrifici) sponsored and hosted my intensive 8 day immersion into the world of Italian beer culture and craft brewing. Italy, a country that seems forever planted with vineyards, enjoys a beverage culture deeply immersed in its wine and food. However with the per capita consumption of beer in Italy growing along with 30% of beer consumption coming from imported products, the small but growing number of Italian craft brewers are romancing the notion that Italian culture and cuisine is an absolutely perfect complement to specialty craft brewed beers. It is worth noting that the root of the word romance comes from Rome.
