Join us on a remarkable journey into the world of Pilsner at Pils & Love, where we celebrate the rich heritage and exquisite craftsmanship of this iconic beer style. We are thrilled to announce that Agostino Arioli, the visionary owner of Birrificio Italiano, will be crossing the Atlantic from Italy to share his passion for Pilsners at this extraordinary event in the Hudson Valley. In 1996, Agostino created TipoPils, becoming the very first “Italian-style pilsner” and setting a true milestone in the international craft beer scene. With over 25 prestigious breweries participating and offering unlimited Pilsner pours, this intimate gathering promises an unforgettable experience.
Embracing the global spirit of Pilsner appreciation, Pils & Love has a storied history. In 2006, Birrificio Italiano hosted the first yearly Pils Pride festival in Italy, which continues to captivate beer enthusiasts to this day. In 2017, Oxbow Brewing Company played a pivotal role in bringing the inaugural Pils & Love festival to the US, held in Portland, Maine. The festival then made its way to the West Coast in 2018, hosted by Firestone Walker Brewing Company, before returning to the East Coast, where Oxbow once again held the fest in 2019.
This year marks the highly anticipated return of Pils & Love to the States, following the post-COVID hiatus. The event will be more intimate than previous years, with 30+ breweries showcasing their finest Pilsners, creating a truly immersive experience. Only 175 tickets will be available, so secure yours early on Eventbrite starting May 18th at 10AM. Cheers to the revival of this legendary festival in the States, where the love for Pilsner knows no boundaries.
