Birrificio Barbaforte

​ Birrificcio        Barbaforte

​​ About 30 minutes by car from Trento City in Trento Province, you can see the beautiful Scanupia Mountains. Then there is the Folgaria Plateau, which is famous for its hiking trails. The highest point is 2056 meters, and the residential area is 1166 meters.

Birrificio Barbaforte was established in this location in 2018.

Founder Matteo Mincone was always interested in the world of beer while working as a bar and pub manager. I started a home brewery in 2006 and conducted various experiments. And we made beer for our friends and relatives.

After that, I learned how to brew beer seriously while working at a brewery in Lombardy. It has now become a local craft beer maker.
