AN OLD LEGEND

The brewery “Le Fate” takes its name from an old legend about wizards, warriors and fairies. According to the tales of Andrea da Barberino and Antoine de la Sale, the fairies lived at the court of the sorceress Sibilla in a dug cave in the rocks of the mountain.

The cave, also called “The Cave of the Fairies” is located close to the “Monte Sibilla” (2150 mt. above sea level).

Each one of our craft beers is named after a fairy, as narrated in the book “Il Guerrin Meschino” (Wretched Guerrin) by Andrea da Barberino.

The story, dating back to the 1400, is that of an errant knight who headed to the cave of the Sibilla to find out about his origins.
