In the context of Italian beer production, among the techniques used, the trend of producing unfiltered and unpasteurized beer is one of the most interesting. This approach is part of a series of expedients to highlight the peculiarities of the product and the raw materials it is made of.

In fact, over the years, our country has seen a considerable increase in enthusiasts and experts in the beer sector, giving rise to a parallel refinement of production techniques and a constant commitment to the search for quality. The production of unpasteurized and unfiltered beer embraces the concept of keeping the product as close as possible to its original state, preserving the natural characteristics that define its taste and organoleptic profile.

While in the past these production techniques remained the prerogative of craft breweries, today using the name “unfiltered” and/or “raw beer” (unpasteurized) is now a leading trend even for the giants of the brewing industry, in response to the demands of a market increasingly looking for “premium beers” that evoke the idea of authenticity and genuineness of the product.

So let’s explore in detail the unique characteristics that make beers brewed in these ways so special, differentiating it from their counterparts:
  1. Freshness:
  2. Avoiding pasteurization, which implies to subject the product to intense heat treatments, allows you to maintain the vitality and natural nutrients that could otherwise be lost during the heating process. The preservation of these important components is the reason why the unpasteurized product is also called “living beer”.
  3. Taste:
  4. The presence of yeast and other particles that persist in the beer because they are not separated from the liquid part through the filtration system, give a richer flavor profile and a fuller mouthfeel. The malt notes and spicy nuances emerge more evidently, giving a unique tasting experience.
  5. Color:
  6. Avoiding the filtration process allows the product to preserve a characteristic appearance, often described as “cloudy”. This opacity is the result of suspended particles contributing to its complexity, adding a distinctive visual element.
  7. Aromatic profile:
  8. Unpasteurized and unfiltered beer offers a variety of flavors that span a wider range of profiles. From fruity tones to subtle spices, each sip is an exploration through aromatic diversity. The experience is enriched by malt nuances that maintain their vitality from start to finish.
  9. Sustainability:
  10. These production methods can be traced back to a sustainable approach, in terms of energy and water saving. Eliminating the need for two production processes, in this case filtering and pasteurization, can help reduce environmental impact by promoting conscious production practices.
