The Sea of Beer Event is Coming to Tuscany

Publigiovane will host a “Sea of Beer” event on Isola del Giglio from June 9th to 11th.

Isola del Giglio is a small island off the coast of Tuscany in Italy and is most famously known as the sort of green oasis that makes for the perfect summer holiday in Italy. However, this year, Isola del Giglio is famous for another reason: as the setting of the iconic Sea of Beer event!

This unique festival (called “Un Mare Di Birra” in Italian) is arranged in collaboration with Publigiovane Events and takes place every few months, being hosted each time by a different Italian town or city. In June, it is being hosted by Isola del Giglio (June 9th to 11th) and will celebrate the best of Italian beer, especially Tuscan varieties.

It is being held in Giglio Castello – a charming medieval village at the heart of the island, and a short list of all the beers that will be available at the event will be published on the festival’s Facebook page – please click here to find out more.

During the long weekend, visitors to Isola del Giglio can enjoy the stunning natural beauty of the island, set in a landscape that even today is still wild, with many examples of native Mediterranean plants that are not found in other parts of the world. It also boasts some rather idyllic coastlines, with sublime views of the sea that can be enjoyed with a cool glass of Tuscan beer.

As a part of the Sea of Beer festival, as well as displays from many Italian and Tuscan brewers, there will be two free workshops at Giglio Castello’s ancient fortress, where visitors can learn more about Italian beer. There will also be local produce available to taste and buy, such as Italian olive oil and salami.

But don’t worry if you can’t make it to the Sea of Beer festival on Isola del Giglio as Publigiovane Events also organises the EurHop! Roma Beer Festival, which is being held in central Rome between October 6th and 8th in 2017, as well as FrankenBierFest.
