Fodor's Expert Review Birreria Pantesca
Founded in 2017 by a Pantescan jazz pianist and his brother-in-law, Birreria Pantesca is the island’s first and only craft brewery. They make five beers, including a summery blond lager, a German-style weiss beer, and Pantipa, an America IPA. More unexpected is the Perla Nera, an Irish stout and—even more interesting—La Zibirra, beer made with a percentage of dried zibibbo grapes. The latest plan is a hemp beer made with legally-grown hemp from Bugeber. Look out for Birreria Pantesca beers in island bars and restaurants or book ahead for tastings in their Pantelleria town brewery (€10).
