This week I’m very happy to introduce a new brewery to Ireland, Birrificio Del Doge, hailing from the Treviso area of Italy. The story of how the brewery came about is a familiar one when a pair of craft beer fans, the Giuman brothers, decided to try their hand at brewing their own. After years of perfecting their recipes these homebrewing enthusiasts decided to take the plunge and in 2013 they took it to the next step and opened their own brewery with the help of professional brewer Federico Casarin. Their philosophy for brewing and beer styles takes a leaf out of the German tradition with attention to detail in the brewing process and a focus on ingredient selection, such as their pride in their local spring water.
Earlier this year they added a new line of beers with their Doge People range with a focus on easy drinking but flavoursome beers. First up they have two quite different lagers with the smooth, light and biscuity Take Easy Helles lager and the more robust malt driven Keep Up Vienna lager with caramel sweetness and a dry finish. Their Now You IPA is very easy drinking, smooth and fruity with a light resinous finish. While their Belgian style golden ale Go Over is full, soft and rounded with honeyed fruit and a touch of sweetness. You can try out the full range for yourself as they are current on offer for a superb price of 5 for €10.
