Our HIMERA Craft Beer
Our HIMERA Craft Beer
Semedorato beer was born in Sommatino (Caltanissetta) in 2014.
In a few years the brand Semedorato beer has spread with great success throughout Sicily, but also in Italy and abroad, placing a strong imprint of quality, professionalism, vision of the brewery market and considerable attention to consumer needs. The history of Semedorato beer is already full of awards and acclaim from all over the world, with a clientele faithfully linked to its uniqueness and extreme quality constant over time.
Craft Beer differs from industrial beer in that it is not filtered or pasteurized and the brewery from which it is produced does not exceed 200,000 hectoliters of production.
The basic element is barley malt to which hops, yeast and water are added.
Even if the artisan beer is more easily perishable, it keeps inside a remarkable added value given by the naturalness of the processing.
Whole-grain yeast cells and unfiltered particles provide the product with
an intense and tasty taste. The genuineness reflects the integrity of the atavistic beer [or of the origins], when the drink was called 'liquid bread'.
because it provided excellent nutritional characteristics.
The presence of vitamins in particular of group B, of natural antioxidants that help prevent cardiovascular disease, of mineral salts and potassium.
as well as the medicinal benefits of hops, make unfiltered and unpasteurized beer a very useful food in a healthy and balanced diet.
The name Himera
The name Himera is reminiscent of a city founded in 648 BC. [from exiles from Zancle, (now Messina) and Syracuse].
The civilization was located on the north coast of the island, in the current territory between Termini Imerese and Cefalù, at the mouth of the river of the same name.
Himera is also the name of the epic battle in which the inhabitants of Sicily faced and defeated the Carthaginians.
To celebrate the victory new temples were built and the city lived for years in prosperity developing the territory with scientific, artistic and cultural activities.
Himera is also the name of the river that flows through the valleys where our beer is produced:
The southern Imera or Salso Himeras is Sicily's main waterway in length. The rocks of the areas that the river crosses in its path,
release over time the potash salts and rock salt that enrich the water.
This is also the case of the Madonie spring water, which together with the natural mineral salts is used for the production of the Semi-medorati Artigianale Beer that we will call Himera.
From the Greek, Iméra means day. So light, sun, life.
Himera will be the beer of those who want to grasp the feelings and live emotions of Sicily, its great history, culture, traditions, with its light, its sun, its magical scents, life ... from the enchanted valley of Himera.
