San Gabriel

Ingredients

WATER is the basic element of the beer and San Gabriel exploits a near natural treasure: the river Piave. Its sources are situated in the territory of San Polo di Piave, in the same place where Lia river, the Templar's river, starts.

BARLEY is the soul of the beer and we take a lot of care of our grains… Since 2006 San Gabriel Company has begun the experimental farming of couplet barley for producing beer.

THE HOP, in Venetian dialect “bruscandoeo”, grows wild along the hedges of our country and gives the aroma to the beer. The Monks, since the antiquity, understood the extraordinary peculiarities of this appreciated plant.

Radicchio, chestnuts, fig-trees fruit, are excellences of the Venetian country. San Gabriel uses them for the production of seasonal beers.

The brewery

San Gabriel brewery founded in 1997, is birth from an idea by the beersommelier Gabriele Tonon, graduated at Doemens academy of Munich in Bayer. The production began in an ancient mansion at Busco in Ponte di Piave village just beside the Benedictine abbey where in middle ages healing drinks were prepared and beer was one of them.

The work is executed with modern technologies, but according to the instructions of Pureness Edict, issued in Bayer during the Renaissance Age, in order to guaranteeing the absolute and highest naturalness of the golden drink.
