23 June: Giornata Nazionale della Birra Artigianale/ National Craft Beer Day. Time to celebrate the 25 Anniversary of the Italian Craft Beer movement, with the first National (Italy) Craft Beer Day which will be celebrated every year on this date. Below the Unionbirrai Press release:

Milan, 2 June 2021) – The first National Craft Beer Day will be celebrated on 23 June. Launched on the occasion of the 25th anniversary of the founding of the Italian craft brewing movement, the initiative of Unionbirrai, an association of small independent Italian breweries, aims to remind everyone, even those who are approaching this world for the first time, how far it has come (and is now making) beer in Italy.

The decision to establish the first day dedicated to craft beer in 2021 is dictated precisely by the achievement of the quarter century since the birth of the movement that started a real revolution in the culture and consumption of beer in the Country, up to even reaching to the establishment of the legal denomination of craft beer in 2016. From the beginning to today, in fact, changes in terms of company size, production capacity of craft breweries, constantly growing quality of craft beers produced and increasing presence in both the national market and abroad, tell of an extremely dynamic and innovative world. The Italian panorama of independent craft beer producers has changed today compared to the early years, spreading, from North to South, throughout the national territory. In 2020 in Italy the presence of almost 1000 craft breweries was detected, of which 40% associated with Unionbirrai, a trade association of independent beer producers that since its first steps, protects and promotes this world and the craft beer culture.

The decision to celebrate Italian Craft Beer on an early summer day stems from the desire to allow brewers, publicans and enthusiasts to organize events dedicated to the beloved drink both indoors and outdoors, in this period still marked by restrictions, so that the National Craft Beer Day is an opportunity to leave behind the difficulties of the last year of the pandemic and once again remain united with the aim of promoting beer. All the details and planned initiatives will be announced in the coming days through the official Unionbirrai channels.
