After the great success of last year, on Wednesday 10 July Borgo Manforte kicks off , the Festival dedicated to beer, music and good food that inaugurates the summer season of the local Manforte in Talenti.
Eight appointments are coming for this second edition which will offer every Wednesday a fascinating journey to discover the beers of Birra del Borgo , the brewery founded by Leonardo di Vincenzo in Borgorose, a small town in the province of Rieti, in the nature reserve of the Duchess mountains. The basic idea of Birra del Borgo has always been to rethink the classic idea of beer and find the right ingredients to characterize the beers, making them unique without ever distorting them.
Starting from July 10th, every Wednesday until August 28th, the garden of Manforte will become the stage for eight events in which beer and food will be the undisputed protagonists accompanied by Italian music cover bands. The large and welcoming outdoor space of the Talenti room, lit by garlands of lights and furnished with benches, chairs and tables of wood and iron, is a perfect place in summer to make great tables with friends, tasting bruschetta, pizza and burger, sipping excellent beer and listening to good live music under the stars.
