Should you visit Biella today, you'll still find Menabrea brewing their award-winning beer on the same site, made in the same way, by the same family, with the same ingredients, passion and care.

“Menabrea provides something different in a category dominated by commodity brands. A trip to Biella in 2019 was enough to make founding GHF without Menabrea, not a proposition even worth considering.”
