PIETRA, the chestnut beer

Pietra, the founding creation of the brewery, is brewed with a blend of selected malts and Corsican chestnut flour. Finely hopped for a delicate bitterness, presenting a rich froth reminiscent of chestnut flowers, Pietra is a rounded, unctuous and harmonious beer, with a beautiful finish of chestnut notes mixed with honey.

    CORSICAN IPA, the IPA made in Corsica

    Corsican IPA is the India Pale Ale from Brasserie Pietra. Dry hopping with two hops, including the remarkable Citra, develops the complex aromatic profile of this IPA. Corsican IPA first reveals, with an intense floral aroma – passion fruit, mango – and then explodes in the mouth with its notes of tropical and citrus fruits: mango and lemon flavours, a frank and generous bitterness, and a nice balance between the roundness of the malt and the bitterness of the hops.

  • History

    On a summer evening, in 1992, Armelle and Dominique, both beer lovers, were sitting at the terrace of a bar in Corte, regretting one fact: they couldn’t enjoy a Corsican beer.

    Thus, they decided to create one. With this spark of an idea begins the story of Brasserie Pietra, the first brewery in the history of Corsica.

    The women and men of the brewery

    Armelle and Dominique sought to surround themselves with the best skills. They convinced Guy and Eric, both master brewers, to join them on the adventure. Muriel, a young Biology graduate from the University of Corte, joined the team to create the quality department. Laurent, a 17-year-old trainee at the time, discovered the brewing industry.

    Savoir-Faire

    A team ensures the guarantee of Brasserie Pietra’s know-how and quality.

    The recipes for Pietra’s beers are developed at the heart of the brewery.

    The Pietra team works on selecting the finest raw ingredients (malts, chestnut flour, hops, spices...) as well as watching over the breeding and propagation of its own yeasts. It monitors and safeguards the artisan manufacturing process and respect for the original recipes. Thus, the recipe for Pietra, the brewery’s flagship beer, has remained the same since its creation.

    A good environmental citizen

    Since opening in 1996, Brasserie Pietra has always shown concern for the preservation of the environment. Its development has gone hand in hand with ecological initiatives. Water management, CO₂ recovery, energy savings and waste treatment are among the actions implemented.

    Brasserie Pietra is also involved with numerous cultural, sports and charity associations whose actions are testimony to Corsican solidarity.
