Saturday 26 September 2020 Hop Party at the headquarters of Birrificio del Ducato in Soragna, Strada Argine 43. A celebratory day dedicated to one of the main ingredients of beer: hops.
September is the month of the hops harvest and in October the sowing of barley begins. September 26th is therefore the perfect time to taste what Mother Nature has given us and that the brewers of Birrificio del Ducato magically transform, every day, into our favorite drink: BEER!
Throughout the day, from 12 a.m. until night, Birrificio del Ducato will pour 10 different draft beers, which participants could accompany to the street food of I DUE GATTI from Parma, with their street food truck “Roast & Roll”!
In the early afternoon the brewers of Birrificio del Ducato will held two WORKSHOPS, unmissable events for the most curious:
- 3 pm “BEER: RAW MATERIALS, PRODUCTION AND SENSORY ANALYSIS” by Marco Maccioni, Head of Production and of the Ducato Brewery.
- 4 pm “FOR THE LOVE OF HOPS: THE HOPS, ITS CULTIVATION AND ITS USE IN IPA” by Danilo Troianiello, Head Brewer of Birrificio del Ducato and Eugenio Pellicciari, Founder of Italian Hops Company.
To participate to the workshops, reservations are required. It is possible to book by email, telephone or Social by contacting the Brewery directly.
To entertain the audience of the Hop Party, two musical events from the aperitif onwards:
- From 6pm DJ SET by Davide Schmid.
- From 10pm live music with Cinzano Five!
In case of bad weather the event will be canceled.
