Birra Romano

Limited, Draft Only
Original Release Date: 

This Brewpub Exclusive was brewed at the Rehoboth Beach brewery by our Milton-based Quality Assurance Team. Together they came up with the beer idea, recipe and name.

Birra Romano is a black saison with French Saison yeast, chocolate and black malt, lemon peel and wheat malt. It was hopped with Southern Cross hops.

The name Birra Romano is a nod to the beer's similarity to Caf Romano, espresso with a twist of lemon. In terms of flavor, Birra Romano has some clovey spice and herb notes with notable red apple esters. Most of this is yeast character, as the only thing we added other than hops and malt was lemon peel.Birra Romano, with its thin body, floats beautiful over 90 Minute IPA and Midas Touch (one part Midas to two parts Birra Romano).

This beer is scheduled to be tapped on Friday, 7/16/2010 at 4:00pm and will be available until it is gone!

Due to the limited availabilty of our Brewpub Exclusive beers, growlers of Birra Romano are not available to go. Sorry.

Every year we throw a bash for our awesome Mug Club members to thank them for their support. In honor of this event, we brew a unique beer that they get to try before anyone else.
It’s that time…time for the Great American Beer Festival! It’s like Christmas in September for the beer community.
