Tasting beers at the Hotel Brunelleschi’s Tower Bar

The Olmaia Brewery was born in 2005 in Val d’Orcia by three friends who, united by passion, decided to brew beer. They create genuine and sincere beers, characterized by a solid personality and clearly recognizable, all of which are highly fermented.

Birra La 5

Beer “La 5” is a beer inspired by the traditional Pils. The colour is an intense yellow with beautiful golden reflections and it has a compact, fine and persistent foam. The smell is that of horseradish hops and floral sensations, as well as almost sweet honey. In the mouth, after the initial sweet taste, the hop bitter comes to great lengths dominating the finish.

Alcohol content 5.5%

Birra La 9
It is a beer inspired by British bitter Ales but with very particular scents that remind of indian pale ale.
In the glass, it has a beautiful amber colour with orange reflections, the foam is fine, compact and very persistent. Its scent is markedly of candied bitter orange and caramel. In the mouth it shows sensations of bitter orange and caramel.
Alcohol content 6.5%

Beer BK
It is a beer inspired by the traditional stout.
It is a dark, almost impenetrable beer. To the nose it reveals roasted notes, lightened by the presence of hops that gives more freshness. In the mouth there are some hints of coffee and chocolate with a pleasantly dry and aromatic closure.
Alcohol content 6%

Ingredients of the three beers in tasting: water, barley malt, hops, sugar, yeast. They contain gluten.

The Tower Bar is in Piazza Santa Elisabetta, Nr. 3, in the historic centre of Florence.
