From another corner of Italy, Latina, we introduce East Side Brewing. Founded in 2013 by a group of friends, their story begins with a home brew. Or several.
They tested the market first by attending beer festivals and events, growing the brand organically before taking the leap and opening their own brewery at the end of 2014. Their first brew under ‘East Side Brewing’ was available mid-2015 after plenty of experimentation and experiences drawn from travel, local tradition and food. But their ultimate mission is to spread the knowledge and love of artisanal beer locally, with a firm belief that their brews are a valid alternative to the high organoleptic qualities that wine offers. This is maintained by a strict requirement that their beers remain unfiltered, unpasteurized and without adjuncts or cheap ingredients.
East Side focus on the aromatic, enmeshing themselves into their picturesque botanical meets historical surroundings of their local town that are translated into their liquid concoctions. They move away from the American style of dry hopping that can create overly pungent aromas, instead favoring a balance of aromas and flavor. This is further augmented by their intricate, illustrated floral and collage labeling by local artist Roberto Terrinoni denoting a brief story that relates to the beer, territory or the passion of the team.
This is the first time East Side Brewing is in Asia.
