This is not a festival like the others, you know that already. If you want a watery beer or a cocktail with an umbrella, you’re in the wrong place.
Malastrana: official beer of the festival, directly from the fine traditions of Prague. Malastrana is a product of Bohemia’s centuries-old beer culture, where producing beer means producing culture.
Guinness: It’s not a true Celtic festival without Guinness; the historic Irish stout is now part of the Montelago beer family.
Montelago Beers: In collaboration with the Il Mastio brewery of Urbisaglia, we offer our two favourite daughters, Litha – gold medal winner at the Brussels international Beer Challenge in Antwerp and the Barcelona Beer Festival – and Mabon. We like to make things in-house.
Il Mastio of Urbisaglia produces only high quality beers, made in accordance with the oldest brewery traditions, combining scrupulous research of high-quality raw materials with an ideal environment using the most advanced technology. All beers are unpasteurized, highly fermented and unfiltered.
To find out more:
Montelago Celtic Drink: They said we were crazy to mix beer with Varnelli Mistrà. They said it couldn’t be done. On the contrary …. YES …. YOU…. CAN!!!! Try our pairing: Malastrana plus Varnelli! (only on Saturday 4th August)
Mead, cider & new Montelago drinks: Who can resist the Celtic style drinks produced for Montelago by the farm Le Torri of Potenza Picena in Macerata province? Back by popular demand are Montelago mead – ancient nectar of the Gods and magic kilt-igniting potion – and Montelago cider derived from the alcoholic fermentation of apples.

“BRAVI SERGIO” FARM
From the lands of Montecassiano (in Macerata province) come Sergio and his son Enrico with the freshest of their seasonal vegetables. Every Monday and Thursday you can find them on the streets of Macerata, surrounded by hungry old ladies and vegans thirsty for fibre. At Montelago they’ll be the undisputed kings of the courgette, the aubergine, the tomato, the melon, and anything else that can be grilled, blended, peeled, or bitten for a taste of freshness.
Freshly-made rosette, maritozzi and loaves of bread: with the Paparelli brothers Matteo and Nicola, Montelago has finally found its “phornostar”. Hot and straight from their own bakery in Macerata, here come the original focaccio men, ready to satisfy every perverse desire for a slice of bread, to appease the lust of a freshly grilled sausage, to quell the boiling spirit of a jar of grandma's jam.
