Bellissimo is an homage to a special type of Pilsner first introduced by Agostino Arioli, the founder of Birrificio Italiano near Lake Como, Italy. Unlike traditional German or Czech-style Pilsners, Italian-style Pilsners are unique in that they are dry-hopped with German noble hop varieties that feature spicy, herbal, and floral aromas, imparting hop aroma while not increasing bitterness. Bellissimo Italian-style Pilsner is based on German malts and classic Lager yeast. Five weeks of cold conditioning results in a crisp, malt-forward Pilsner base complemented by the floral hop aromas produced by the aforementioned dry-hopping process. One of the reasons VBC chose the name “Bellissimo” is that we find Italian-style Pilsners to be a very beautiful take on the Pilsner style. A collaboration with Williamsburg pizzeria Bellisimo Pizza.
