italian beer...

no, not moretti and peroni... italy has a thriving craft beer movement these days and with no history of brewing these new small brewers aren't constrained by any national brewing tradition or style. rob and i went down to national geographic live last wednesday to taste some of these beers under the guidance of garret oliver, brewmaster of brooklyn brewery. i've put up my notes up over on joefoleybeer.blogspot.com. a lot of these beers have only been in US for a couple of weeks, so it was a treat to taste so many all in one place.
