Since we founded Birrificio del Ducato in Roncole Verdi we dedicated one of our first beers, Verdi Imperial Stout, to the world-famous composer Giuseppe Verdi, who was born right in this small town. Coming back from a trip in New York, the brewmaster and founder of the brewery, Giovanni Campari, decided to create an Imperial Stout with greater balance, elegance and drinkability than those tasted overseas. The originality of his recipe is in the use of chilli: in fact, the spicy finish teases the throat lightening the fullness taste and body of the Stout, making it very easy to drink. Verdi Imperial Stout was the first Italian craft beer in history to win a gold medal at an international competition: in 2008 at European Beer Star in the Imperial Stout category.
