Just east of Turin, in Marinone outside of Como, Agostino Arioli and his brother Stefano founded Birrificio Italiano brewpub and restaurant in 1997 with 8 other partners. All beers sold on premises are house beers and most are bottom fermented. Agostino designed and had built locally his 3 hl brew house. All his beers are uniquely Italian - they are variations on classic beer styles. Today’s capacity is around 700hl.
