Artisanal Beer Movements on the Rise Around the World

Artisanal Beer Movements on the Rise Around the World

The Case of New Zealand Analyzed at Salone del Gusto and Terra Madre 2014 taking place in Turin, Italy, from October 23-27

The rise of artisanal beer brewing is something that Slow Food has been following closely. In recent years, artisanal beer has been a focus for many of our Taste Workshops during events, and this year’s Salone del Gusto and Terra Madre again offers many possibilities to learn more about the history of beer and developments in beer production. Salone del Gusto 2014 will present the latest trends from traditional beer-producing countries such as Belgium, Germany and England, where a new wave of artisanal beer and microbreweries are influencing traditional methods of production. Leading experts will give their opinion on the new direction that these countries are taking with something covering beer from dubbel to Weiss bier and ale.

SDG/TM 2014 presents an interesting session about New Zealand:
Discover the Beers of New Zealand (Saturday, October 25)

Before Sauvignon Blanc, beer was the national drink of New Zealand. As such, there is a large number of artisanal microbreweries and a substratum of brewers and hops producers in the production chain that are making waves even in Europe. We will try take stock of the situation in this country from “Down Under” thanks to the help of Simon Kelly of the Renaissance Brewery in Blenheim. He will guide your discovery of the brew history and exciting new trends by having you taste beers of various styles from a number of Kiwi breweries.

More workshops scrutinizing the development of beer production in certain countries:
London, Her Beers, Her Breweries
What Direction is Britain Taking? New Tendencies in Albion Brewing
Belgium: Revolution of Styles
Revival and Reinterpretation: Where is German Beer Going?
Something’s Brewing in Scandinavia
The New Spanish Beer Movement

Howard Davis: Review - 'I, Daniel Blake' - Ken Loach's Bleak Masterpiece

'I, Daniel Blake' is a bleak masterpiece, a chilling and moving story of two people striking up an unlikely friendship under extremely adverse circumstances. It is both a polemical indictment of a faceless benefits bureaucracy that strips claimants of their humanity by reducing them to mere numbers, and a celebration of the decency and compassion of ordinary people who look out for one another when the state has abandoned them.
