PLB CRAFT BEER

Water, yeast, barley malt, and hops are crucial—and serious—ingredients, but there are other ingredients, too.
We want to keep our desire to play, to try out things, to get our hands into things and experiment.
After all, we live in a larger-than-life, eccentric way, gutsy and amusing, but elegant, too, and open-armed, and, yes, street-smart… but above all we dream big.
Everything starts with our local area, in Romagna, on the border with Tuscany, but we’d like to export our craft way of life even farther than that….
PLB is the quintessential meeting-place between history made and pages yet to be written, between a passion for the artisanal and a modern approach, one with no additives, no preservatives, just a vatful of style!
