The birth of Chinaschi: a beer adventure

In May 2015, Francesco Puma, together with the oenologist Vincenzo Leone, undertook a courageous journey, founding what is today recognized as one of the main breweries in the province of Trapani and the only agricultural company in Trapani dedicated to the production of craft beers. This adventure, born from years of domestic experimentation, has led to the creation of beers that reflect the passion and audacity of its founders: chinaschi brewery.

The name “Chinaschi” itself is a tribute to the Sicilian dialect and the iconic Charles Bukowski, with a play on words that reflects the uniqueness and irony that characterize the beers produced. Using ancient native grains and enhancing the connection with the Sicilian land, Chinaschi is committed to offering beers with the scent of wheat, citrus fruits and floral hints, all distinctive signs of the Sicilian tradition.


Commitment and quality: Chinaschi’s identity

Chinaschi’s goal is not only to produce Sicilian craft beers, but also to spread the culture of craft beer in an area where this tradition is still little known. Through the production of beers that tell stories of lands and traditions, the brewery aims to leave a distinctive mark and promote conscious and passionate consumption.

The strong Sicilian imprint is reflected in every aspect of the brewery, from the choice of ingredients to the care in the production process, demonstrating that respect for the land and passion for the art of brewing can go hand in hand, creating authentic and quality products.
