BIRRO beer from Senatore Cappelli grain

We have been committed to producing craft beer made from the incomparable ancient grain known as Senatore Cappelli. The result: a one-of-a-kind and delicious beer:

BIRRO Beer

With just a touch of astringence which makes for a smooth taste, this artisan beer is reminiscent of fresh bread. A just-right balance of barley malt and grain makes for a perfectly accented flavour profile. Enjoy with a meal or as a refreshing drink with friends.

There’s a touch of whimsy to our label, designed by cartoonist Tommaso Eppesteingher.

Senatore Cappelli Pasta

We wanted to honour our extraordinary harvest of the ancient Saracen grain Senatore Cappelli. Since 2018, and thanks to the skilled hands of our local artisans, you can enjoy excellent bread flours and pastas, made with care using techniques passed down from generation to generation.

Today, this ancient-grain variety has become one of the stars of our homemade dishes. Thanks to its high nutritional content (low-gluten, and chock full of magnesium, potassium, calcium, zinc, not to mention vitamins B and E, and flavonoids), this grain can lower your cholesterol, and has anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. An excellent choice for those with food intolerances and allergies.

In 2020, we began to make flour with the Verna and Andriolo ancient grains, as well.

Ancients Grains

Stone-milled flour from ancient grains

Ancient grains are fascinating, their history spans generations of farmers and their families. We have cultivated and milled them into flour. Today, as a staple in our kitchen, they harken back to a time when all food was slow food, and continue to this day to be the masterful work of human hands, day-in and day-out.
