  • We set off from Milan on a Saturday afternoon because we were struck by the sour beers of Campbell, we tasted in the last two years but that are hard to find. Especially from Barriquée Sour, the first beer in barrels produced in Italy, with aromas of grape Marc, cognac, wild plum, and a wealth of taste which is not common in all acidic. We expected to find a brewery in full swing, with brand new equipment, such as brewing "emerging" we had visited hitherto; Unfortunately the family history of the Brewers had an influence on his fortune, for which--despite still remains best known for acid rain, and as he told us the owner especially abroad-is not able to produce large quantities, mainly because the volume of beer in casks and barriques is binding. We strongly believe that it is a reality that must survive, so hopefully the Italian public is aware of the uniqueness of their acid production. Anyway, back to the visit, after visiting the premises of the brewery (this is a family-run company which also produces Lambrusco and other local sparkling wines), we sat in the tasting room; We tasted a bottle from 75 of Raphael, a bottle of Amber and a glass of beer Brulee (very good, warm and aromatic, although strongly prefer beer "pure and raw"). Accompanying Patrizia served us delicious local cheeses accompanied by beer and grape jelly, cake, and a cake created by her recycling raw materials resulting from the treatment of the beer. There was a great deal of attention to present each product, and is worthy of praise especially large attention in creative reuse of beer recipes using cooked (the Lady said she uses it for the pizza dough), vinegar, beer, pasta beer jellies etc. Literally full of food we purchased a couple of cartons of beer at a great price and we said goodbye , heading towards the Torrechiara village and its castle, we visit definitely on another occasion. Will definitely be back in a few months, maybe in the heat, to enjoy the beautiful view over the vineyards and the delicacies of Patrizia. A reality that bravely resists and that every beer lover should help preserve.

  • I participated in a guided Group (about 10 people) which envisaged at the end of your visit to the brewery Campbell with an aperitif. The owner, Mrs Patrizia, showed itself immediately unfavourable: after having taken to be 10 minutes early and arrived with having made a caress the dog (who wasn't touched because you "don't see that is old and sick?" he seated us. The location for the tasting is very Spartan: two planks covered with plastic tablecloths of unspecified date held together by tape placed under a tent in the parking lot. After a drink cold beer and a warm (the warm one wasn't half bad), started the tour. Unfortunately after discovering that within the group there were two other brewers, the owner has vexed and after provoking repeatedly either one, asked him to continue as Cicero in his stead. The situation has been very embarrassing for all of us. The visit (two rooms) continued between personal outbursts of the owner on his financial problems and family, which as far as I'm concerned, albeit poignant, were decidedly out of place and inappropriate. The weather was really heavy and I sincerely wouldn't go willingly. Shooting the tasting we were offered Parmesan crostini with cream and tomato, Multigrain Bagel and a great tiramisu with beer. The beer that is produced at Campbell is a very particular taste sour beer that personally I couldn't appreciate. On the contrary, the pair of boys who served us the tasting was very courteous and professional. Anyway the visit was marred by the behaviour of the owner that I found appalling.

  • I went in the middle of the feast of ham and having a full house they put tables everywhere and of course were not equipped as any as service kitchen. To gain in the immediate future have dissatisfied customers. I don't think I will return because the food quality was just below the average of the area.
