CRAFT BEER ITALY 2019: soon to welcome the Italian craft beer
community with a wide range of products on display, high level of
internationality and more and more professional contents

40% of international exhibitors, leader companies you won’t meet
anywhere else in Italy
Highly professional conference program
Exclusive offer by Doemens and VLB Berlin, valid for all CRAFT
BEER ITALY visitors

ITALY is just around the corner: less than three months to
go for the second edition of the only B2B event in Italy exclusively
dedicated to craft beer production. The event will provide visitors with a
dual experience. From 27
th to 28th March CRAFT BEER ITALY will offer two
essential tools to the craft beer sector operators: an exhibition on
production, analysis, packaging and sales of craft beer on a 4000 sqm
gross area and a highly professional conference program. The exhibition
area will give visitors the chance to be informed on the latest
developments and get in touch with Italian and international companies,
among the best in the sector, that you won’t meet anywhere else in Italy.
The conference is managed by the well-known institutes VLB Berlin and
Doemens and represents a chance of technical development and
experience sharing thanks to the presence of prominent national and
international experts. In this framework CRAFT BEER
ITALY, Doemens
and VLB Berlin agreed to offer visitors who book on site 5% discount on
some Doemens courses as well as 10% discount on VLB’s European
MicroBrew Symposium.

The last preparation works are underway and the planning of the exhibition area
is almost successfully completed: the second edition of the show goes bigger
and will host more exhibitors than the first one! Next to many Italian leader
companies, CRAFT BEER ITALY is also proud to welcome big international
companies who cover the whole production chain: from plants and components,
tools and integration systems with the Germans Kaspar Schulz, BEERTEC,
Trans Tech Weisser and Orbitalum Tools, the multinational company Pentair
Food and Beverage, the Canadian Cask Brewing Systems and the US company
Roper Pumps up to a wide range of raw materials with Lallemand and Amoretti
from the USA, Brelex from Czech Repulic, Hop France, IGN from Germany, the
Slovenian Hop Growers Association and Fermentis, Hopsteiner, Murphy&Son,
Palatia Malz, Charles Faram and Weyermann Specialty Malts. Many
international exhibitors will also be representing the packaging and lab analysis
world: Biotecon Diagnostics, Blefa, Gevaplast, Hamilton Bonaduz, Döhler and
Schäfer Container Systems. Brewers have definitely a wide range of products to

choose from to get the best for their beers. The complete exhibitor list is
available on the official website

Beside the large exhibition area, the high level technical conference will be the
beating heart of the event with contents managed by the two most important
European institutes for brewing training Doemens and VLB Berlin. The
conference will run in two big rooms located at level -1 of MiCo Lab with direct
access from the exhibition area. All speeches will be available both in English
and Italian thanks to simultaneous translation.

Contents will be divided in macro-areas: just to give you some hints, we will talk
about can filling, an extremely topical theme, as well as contract bottling, main
fermentation and lagering. Lorenzo Dabove, a.k.a. Kuaska, father of the Italian
Craft Beer Movement, will be present with a speech on Lambic while VLB will
deal with beer clarification, influencing the process of main fermentation and
maturation as well as colloidal stability. Among others, Doemens will take care of
bottle and can conditioning and the relatively new field of non-alcoholic beers.
Well known leader companies will also share their knowledge and experience at
CRAFT BEER ITALY; attendees will be able to understand how to choose and
process raw materials at the best, Weyermann will deliver a speech on malt mill,
while Hopsteiner will focus on dry hopping. Besides having the best ingredients,
it’s essential to choose the right plant and get the best out of it: the leading
company Simatec will therefore look into hot-side aeration in the brewhouse.
Savi Lab’s experts will present some innovation opportunities in the brewing
process, enrichment and standardization of beer wort and the German
consulting and engineering company BEERTEC will report on various case
studies of optimization of the brewery efficiency.

Great novelties will complete the visitor experience: four tasting areas (called
TASTE IT! Areas) managed by Doemens and Unionbirrai, the first edition of the
Best Craft Beer Label Contest and the finals of the Italian Championship of Beer
Sommeliers Doemens: the finalists will show their prowess at
ITALY with the sensory description of a beer and proposing beer&food pairings.
And this is just a taste of what visitors will find at
look forward to welcoming you on 27
th and 28th March at MiCo Lab in Milan.
The event will be open from 930am to 6pm on the first day and from 930am to
530pm on the second day. Entrance to the exhibition area is free upon online
registration only. Conference tickets can be bought online and prices increase as
the event gets closer. Prices and tickets can be found here
