SINCE WHEN DOES BEER EXIST IN PARMA?

 

It is hard to say for certain. Surely, beer was present in our city from the XV Century onwards. Indeed, there is an extraordinary fresco, held within the wonderful Galleria Nazionale in Parma. It is a mercy-themed work of art by an unknown artist, titled “Dar da bere agli assetati”, i.e. Giving the thirsty something to drink. A good man gives beer to drink to a family seemingly made up of pilgrims. Getting into this Aemilian museum, it is possible to learn many things. And it is not a strange thing that so many breweries are springing up within our province. They were probably already here, back in the past.
