"Our unbridled passion for beer, near to obsession, led us to realize this dream that we carry forward every day with dedication and commitment, experiencing and risking, struggling and drinking .... We did not believe it was possible to love so much a beverage..." Isacco Mezzadri - Owner
Since 2011, the huge passion for beer has led four boys to abandon their boring and unloved jobs and jump into this beautiful dream by conducting their first experiments in a basement with some old pots. Feeling every day THAT fragrance and enjoying the satisfaction of those who tasted the first beers has led these guys to grow fearlessly without looking at the obstacles. Buttiga was born in a beautiful sixteenth-century courtyard in the outskirts of Piacenza and it is built inside of an old barn, now surrounded by a green orchard, horses and hens. The passion of beer and the desire to experiment has led to a well-provided beer stock, with 11 beers (10 top-fermented) and some novelties ready to be introduced: two beers brewed with wild yeasts and a fresh Gose (salty beer).
Soon, a change of the production machineries and the same production site, moved to an equally spectacular location but more functional and suitable to continue to grow, experiment and feed this beautiful dream.
The production has increased from 300 hl in 2011 to 1500 hl in 2015. The goal for this year is to reach 1800-2000 hl. For 2017 it is scheduled a change of the production machineries and site that will allow us to triple the annual volumes. The raw materials come from all over the world; both malts and hops are bought largely in Europe and in other markets (from America to New Zealand, etc.).
