New Seasonal Brew at Birreria!
Just in time for summer, Birreria released their new seasonal brew – The Primavera. I talked with Fred Avila, the brewer at Birreria, about the new brew and here is what he had to say, “The Primavera, which is Italian for “Spring”, is our take on a Belgian Wit. It’s brewed with 60 lbs of blood oranges, coriander, lavender, and buckwheat. What makes this brew special for all the beer geeks out there is that I brewed it with Dogfish’s Brewmaster Tim Hawn. It clocks in it at 5% abv.”
I couldn’t resist having the other two casks brewed on the beautiful rooftop beer garden located in the heart of the Flatiron District. I enjoyed a flight of a few of Birreria’s great beers. The first beer was the Wanda, an English mild ale brewed with smoked Italian Chestnuts. The second was the Gina, a pale ale seasoned with fresh thyme from the hills of Borgorose, Italy. The last beer was the new Primavera.
