Hoppiness: From the Earth to the Beer. From Friday 29 to Sunday 31 March 2019 at the Movicentro in Bra (Piazza Caduti di Nassiriya) three days dedicated to craft beers, local cuisine, wines and meetings and tastings. An event organized by the Food and Wine Cultural Association in collaboration with the City of Bra and participation in the My Personal Beer Corner project and the Vinibuoni d'Italia guide published by the Italian Touring Club.

From the land to the beer, because Hoppiness will be an opportunity to taste labels that are able to tell more and more about the territories from which they are born, with an ever shorter supply chain that is attentive to the use of local specialties, up to the almost total self-production in the case of agricultural brewing realities. Not only labels to taste and buy but also insights on raw materials and processing activities (barley, hops, malt house) that increasingly contribute to shorten the supply chain, as well as workshops, meetings and guided tastings in collaboration with the My Personal project Beer Corner.

Three days full of taste, with 10 craft breweries from Piedmont, Emilia Romagna and Tuscany, 2 kitchens that offer dishes with local products, from Bra Sausage to Prosciutto Crudo Dop, music, and animations also for children, with the tales of Gullino's project "The Adventures of Kiwito and Galita", dedicated to healthy eating.

Hoppiness also opens a window on the world of wine, thanks to the presence of a selection of labels edited by the Vinibuoni d'Italia guide published by the Italian Touring Club. A tribute to the Roero with local wines, sparkling wines from an autochthonous vine and a series of interesting and curious tasting moments dedicated to the comparison with Italian Grape Ale, beers produced according to the Classic Method and refined in wood, to appreciate the analogies and distinctive features.

The event will open with the delivery by FoodAround, the City of Bra and GAI of the award to Andrea Turco, for the over 10 years of communication work on the world of craft beer of the Cronache di Birra blog, and with the special tasting SPARKLING LAND - Effervescent aperitif, from 18 to 20 on Friday, which combines the craft beers present with sparkling wines from the native vine.
