This beer made by the Birrificio Ossolano is dedicated to the “Twergi“, the creatures of the forest, the elves in the Walser culture
Dwarfs or goblins are the protagonists of the Walser fairytale world: they represent animated nature and are the custodians of ancient wisdom that resided in the woods. Stockj in the Lys valley, Twergi in Ornavasso, Zwärgj in Formazza, Tacchie in Rima, Gutwiärginj in Macugnaga: the names are different, but identical are the legendary creatures born over the centuries from the imagination of shepherds and mountain dwellers. The popular imagination sees them living in the woods, their home par excellence.
It’s a high fermentation beer, unfiltered and unpasteurized. It has an intense red color with an accentuated body, but not obstinate.
It has a slightly spicy hint with a licorice aftertaste.
This 75cl version is presented in an oval-shaped bottle to better present the uniqueness of the beer.
