« My work experience in long-tradition English breweries has shaped my brewing technique. I do love those beers tapped from casks with the ancient method, that keeps beer slightly sparkling and enhances its organoleptic qualities. Among the main ingredients of those legendary dark beers we can find oatmeal, making them “silky”, English Brown malt, that gives shades of coffee and chocolate hints and another British malt, that gives cacao scents. I wanted a beer that could express coffee and chocolate tones, typical of the oatmeal stout style, however with an essential not watery and not so high in alcohol volume. "Less is more" as the English people would say. Ambranera is among the most appreciated OTUS beers not only by the general public: the first "brew" tapped in our brewery with apprehension, hoping that everything went well, it was awarded with the second prize in the 19th Category during the Beer of the Year contest 2018 in Rimini. How do we say in these moments? A good first win! ».
