Fusion kitchen


Iacopo Lenci, brewmaster and owner of Birrificio Brùton in Tuscany, Lucca, Italy.

Iacopo Lenci, brewmaster and owner of Birrificio Brùton in Tuscany, Italy considers beers a “fusion kitchen”. He likes to mix it up. He started the brewery in 2006, breaking away from his father’s Fattoria di Magliano winery. At the time he started, there were four breweries in Tuscany. Now there are about 50.

“I come from wine country,” says Lenci. “We don’t have a beer culture….What we are trying to do classical styles with an Italian touch…The differences are the Italian grape ales using wine must.”

He adds: “I consider beers a fusion kitchen. It is all about balance and finesse. They don’t have to be crazy. They have to be good booze. They have to be drinkable. They have to be enjoyable.”
