The Craft Beer Event South Tyrol

Since 2015 Beer Craft is a gathering of beer enthusiasts who, above all, revisit and revive the craft of brewing beer. It is aimed at all those who are interested in the subject of beer in any form or who would like to be inspired by it.

Location & ambience

Nestled in a vast vineyard landscape and with a magnificent panorama of the garden of roses, we find Maretsch Castle in the centre of the city of Bolzano.

The castle dates back to the 12th century. The oldest tower of the castle was built in 1194 by Berthold von Maretsch and according to written documents, the man was one of the plenipotentiaries of the Counts of Tyrol and a judge in Bolzano.

In the 1980s, the complex was gently renovated, but is no longer inhabited. Today, Maretsch Castle serves primarily as a trade fair, concert and event centre and can be reached on foot from Bolzano in just a few minutes.
