International Craft Beer Meeting
September 25 - 26 2020
Beer Craft Bozen
Dear friends of better beers,
Given the current situation, it is of course not possible for us to implement the "Beer Craft" event planned for May. It is still not possible to predict whether we will still be able to hold the event this year.
Nevertheless, we have decided not simply accept the situation and cancel the event in 2020, but we will definitely try to get together for a good beer this year.
The new date is on the 25th-26th September. We have to thank all of our partners, suppliers and especially the team of Maretsch castle, who supported us very much in being able to set this possible date.
This situation is not easy for everyone, but we are more than confident that it can be mastered together and that we can look back positively to the future shortly.
We hope to see you all in September!
Drink good beer!
Kind regards and stay healthy!

Beer Craft Events
Nestled in a vast vineyard landscape and with a magnificent view over the impressive mountain range „rose garden“, we find Maretsch Castle in the heart of the city of Bolzano.
The castle dates from 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 judge in Bolzano. At the beginning of the vineyards, only the massive castle keep was visible, which can still be seen today. Between the 13th and 14th century, various owners continued to expand the castle. The battlements and dovetails are also from this period.
In 1477 the plant acquired Sigmund Römer. The Römer family began now with a decades-long reconstruction of the medieval castle to a Renaissance-era palace complex. The four round outer towers were built. Also frescoes were commissioned by philosophers of the time.
In the 80s, the plant was gently renovated, but is no longer inhabited. Today Maretsch Castle serves primarily as a trade fair, concert and event center and can be reached on foot from Bolzano Main Sqare in just a few minutes.
