Sample Brùton Beers!
Iacopo Lenci got his start in beer making as a home brewer. But unlike most home brewers, Lenci went pro and is now introducing his Lucca, Italy-made Birrificio Brùton beer to North America. Founded in 2006, the brewery is carving its own craft beer tradition, with some definite influences from Belgium, and creating brews that are beautifully balanced and easy to drink. Brùton’s beers are unpasteurized, unfiltered and undergo secondary fermentation in the bottle that results in somewhat cloudy– opalescent even–beers that have complex aromas and hearty foam heads.
