BirTa is a beer with a unique taste, produced by the wise hands of the brew masters in the heart of Campania in the areas of Taburno in Sannio also known for the famous Aglianico DOCG.
This area, kissed by the sun, where the hot southern wind blows and the land is compact and fertile, the hop grows spontaneously. It is cultivated together with the barley to produce a 0 mile beer characterised by the shortest chain that you can imagine. Also the water comes from the slopes of Monte Taburno, which overlooks the valley. Finally, the beer ages in the same barrels used to refined the Aglianico, another elements that reinforce the relation between land and product.
