About La Birra di Meni: From Mortar to Malt
La Birra di Meni exemplifies the quest for purity in beer. It is unfiltered, unpasteurized, bottle conditioned Italian artisanal beer packed with probiotics, all natural minerals and B-vitamins retaining all of the nutritional benefits found in lovingly brewed beer liberated from commercial preservatives and additives. Domenico "Meni" Francescon and his son Giovanni bottle condition each beer with live, active yeast slowly fermenting in the bottle creating delicate all-natural carbonation enhancing the complex flavors and aromas of fine artisanal beer with age.

La Birra di Meni is handmade with fresh mountain water from the Dolomites one tank at a time by Meni and his son Giovanni in the Northeast of Italy in Cavasso Nuovo, Friuli-Venezia Giulia. They can only sustainably produce 50,000 bottles of sparkling liquid art per year. The beer that Meni brews has been over 35 years in the making and it is a beautiful, rare and very real story of passion and determination. Meni, at 70 years young, and his son Giovanni still touch every bottle and hand pack every case. Meni is not just a brewer or a brand, he is an artist. Drink La Birra di Meni and be transported to experience the bright colors, aromas, flavors, places, and people of the storied region of Friuli-Venezia Giulia.
