No, Italian craft beer is not a typo — or a punchline. As understandably and justifiably obsessed as we all are with the ongoing L.A. craft beer revolution, there are similar beer renaissances going on around the globe. And Italy, world-renowned for its wine, is one such place.

If you haven’t yet tasted these delicious brews, or even heard of them, join me and Beer Belly’s Jimmy Han this Sunday, July 28, from 1:00 to 5:00 p.m. on the brand-new back patio of Beer Belly at 525 S. Western Ave. in L.A.’s Koreatown, for “Viva la Birra Italiana,” a crash course in Italian craft beer.

Enjoy flights of innovative beers from the country’s ever-growing birra artigianale scene, which grew out of Italy’s Slow Food movement. Featured will be both bottled and kegged brews from such birrificios as Amiata, Baladin, del Borgo, Brûton, Grado Plato, Italiano, Montegioco and Troll.
