CLASSICS

 

SIGERIC  golden ale 5% vol – ibu 40 – golden color 

feelings: equilibrium, according to the British tradizion. honey, yellow and citrus fruits  

Dedicated to the Archbishop of Canterbury (UK), who left the oldest piece of note about the Via Francigena, in 990
A.D. Returning from Rome, Sigeric noted the best places on its path to rest and eat: the first guide in the world for pilgrims and gourmands! The label is taken from the Stuttgart’s Salterio, a miniated book from the 9th century, in which a wayfarer is refreshed with beer by a cellarman. There is a funny similarity with the image of the Annunciation to Mary in the history of painting.

DETOUR amber ale 5,5% vol – ibu 30 – ruby color

feelings: complexity, according to the Flemish tradizion. plums, strawberry grape, cola, cocoa

Detour celebrates the deviations from the marked path. Pilgrims usually follow arrows to reach their destination, thus walking down the same road of their predecessors. But only if you choose new paths you can discover new things… The recipe is inspired by some peculiar Flemish beers that date back to the end of 19th century and were inspired, in turn, by British bitter ales. They became popular in the region of Oudenaarde during WWI, thank to the presence of the British troops.  The label comes from the movie Aguirre: the man and the ape are the result of a long chain of detours in the history of evolution. They are very similar and very  different, at the same time.

ERRANTE  wheat saison with Ancient Tuscan Grains 5% vol – ibu 20 – pale color – GLUTEN FREE 

sensations: territory, according to the Italian tradition. Ancient Tuscan Grains, bergamot, clove, pepper

Errante is Tuscany in the glass: it is made with the best ancient wheat varieties of Tuscany. Its recipe is the result of a voluntary mistake: generally, wheat beers are flavored with spices… We don’t add spices because we want to leave in the foreground the amazing taste of the Tuscan grains. To err means to make mistakes, but also to wander, the way that Knight-Errants used to live. The label portrays the most famous Knight-Errant, Don Quixote, riding an Etruscan horse, in the landscape of San Gimignano. Errante is also gluten free and it is our laboratory-beer: its  sour version is also aged in barrels and in terracotta amphoras.

availability: all year round- bottle 0,33 L – keg 30 L

 

ROMA  session ipa 5% vol – ibu 50 – golden color – GLUTEN FREE

feelings: hops, according to the overseas tradition. mango, grapefruit, cardamom

Roma is the term of the Via Francigena. All the roads lead to Rome, says the ancient saying… And our road lead us to brew an IPA. Something similar to what happens when you step into a Roman Labyrinth, like the one on the label: you can’t loose your way, if you don’t have any hesitation. Then things change when you reach your destination: you may want to find your way back home, or maybe not… Rome is also one of the most tolerant and cosy cities in the world. That’s why it also gives its name to our 2nd gluten free ale.

ALTROVE  saison ipa 7% vol – ibu 35 – orange color

feelings: the charme of distant exotic places. candied orange, cotton candy, passion fruit, spices

Altrove means elsewhere. It is dedicated to those particular type of travels, that is done with the mind: soft reveries of distant exotic places, big and heroic deeds, dreams of discoveries. It condenses the perfumes of sweet and exotic fruits and spices, together with the sounds of faraway lands. The label comes from the movie Fitzcarraldo, about one of the craziest daydreamers, who wants to build a Opera House in the middle of the Amazonas, where to stage the masterpieces of the famous Italian tenor Caruso

availability: all year round- bottle 0,33 L – keg 30 L

 

DUROVERNUM  black saison 8% vol – ibu 35 – mahogany color

feelings: the warmth of home, a hug from a friend. blackcurrant, cocoa, licorice, coffee

Durovernum is the Latin name of Canterbury (UK), where the pilgrimage on the Via Francigena has its starting point. But also its end, because every travel has an inward part. Sigeric, after visiting Rome, had to make a long journey back home. Our Durovernum is dedicated to all the people who live far from their native lands, missing the ancient flavors and the old friends. The label is taken from the Bayeux Tapestry (11th Century) and represents the Archbishop in the act of blessing the beverage, before celebrating with his friends.
