BEER CRAFT

International Craft Beer Meeting

May 15 - 16 2020

Beer Craft Bozen

The Beer Craft is a gathering of beer enthusiasts, especially of those, who think of brewing beer as a craft and who want to revive it. All those who are interested in the subject of beer in any way are welcome. In the heart of Bozen, Maretsch Castle will present the beer culture in a new light on 15th & 16th May 2020, with numerous exhibitors and beers from Germany, Austria, Italy and further abroad. The "craft beer hype“ has reached South Tyrol at full speed. The general trend towards regional, high-quality products has also noticeably increased interest in the variety of artisan brewed beer (craft beer). The number of brewing factories and the production of various craft beers has risen sharply in Europe in the recent years. There are many brewing methods and styles from different cultures.

Information



Location

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.
