Luppoleto Camuno is not only a brewery, but it is also a hop farm born in 2015 in Camonica Valley: it is one of the first Italian hop company. Luppoleto Camuno uses their hops in beers, cosmetics and food. You have to know that there is a cosmetics line (HOPPY LIFE) and a infusions line (HOPPY TEA). Special hoppy-products where hop gave its natural, intrinsic healthy powers to you in a different way than the classic pint. But this is a humble beer blog, so let me talk you about The Redeemer: a golden and paradisiac Italian Ale.
