Founded in 1906, Birra Italia expresses all the fizzy taste of that age, still today letting us taste a world of freshness and excitement, along with the passion, typical of our country, for things that are good and artfully made.
The original brewery was on Corso Sempione in Milan and produced three types of beer, the classic light beer, a dark beer and a high alcohol content beer, using water from wells located inside the brewery. Success was just around the corner: in a short time Birra Italia absorbed Birra Milano, then Birra Seriate owned by Wunster and finally even Birreria Ambrosiana.
Everything continued to fizz along until the 1950s when an apparently mild earthquake hit Milan. On the surface there appeared to be no damage, but underground the changes were irreversible: the three wells of clear, pure water, perfect for making beer, began to produce hard water, unsuitable for brewing beer.
In addition, by the early 1970s problems with trade unions and changes in the corporate structure caused Birra Italia to lose more and more of its market share, until the year 2000 when it was acquired by HoreCare, and the brand returned to the limelight.
