During the last years the artisanal beer
producers have been multiplying in all the peninsula, because the industrial beer, subject to filtering and pasteurization, don't preserve all the beer natural aromas and tastes.
Italy is a nation in which water quality is very high, so, starting from the prerequisite that beer is 90% made by water, Italian beer starts form a great base. Historically the Italian territory hasn't been dedicated to production of beer, ad it has always been focused on the wine production. Cultivations as the barley, hops and yeasts production have never been developed, as a consequence almost all the producers import the raw materials from foreign countries.
project has the aim to realize a 100% Italian and artisanal beer. The beginning was very difficult, the supplier insisted that it would be impossible to cultivate an high quality barley but especially hops in Italy. But ,after 3 years of experiments and territory analysis, 3 hops and a barley (Spring Barley Prestige Variety) perfect for the production of an agricultural beer
have been selected.
The beer has been called OI because this acronym is the dialect word to indicate the Oglio river, in whose park the raw materials which give birth to this beer are cultivated; moreover Oi stands for Italian Barley (Orzo Italiano) and Italian Origin (Origine Italiana).
The result is an harmonious, genuine and high quality beer. In order to make it as pure as possible and exalt its aromas it is nor filtered or pasteurized, its amber color that mends of the sunset will amaze your sight; it has a fragrant taste of toasted malt; It has a fresh and elegant taste, with a perfectly balanced bitter shade. OI Beer
