White Pony Microbrewery was officially born in 2013 by Roberto Orano. Name is inspired by the music album of the band Deftones. By the way, the first beer The Oracle is of course inspired by In Flames’ Whoracle album.
“When I was 24 y.o. in 2013, I was not able to find a good job, so I decided that was time to choke my breath with my own hands and don’t wait that someone else would do it, so I invested my last money from a previous job in a 1000 lt batch that was sold out in a week”.
The beers received soon lot of good feedbacks and so the interest from the export, and one of the first countries was Sweden.
The production, from 10HL of February and March 2013 increased to total 1250 HL in the year 2016. Actually “White Pony” has got 7 beers in the Ratebeer’s Italian top50, Untappd’s best Italian breweries, 4/5 total rate on BeerAdvocate, 2 awards at Birrinitaly 2015 and 2016 (as best beer of the entire festival), a silver medal at Nordic Beer Challenge, two times in the top10 of famous Belgian beer festival Kerst Bier Festival and three beers in the top50 best imported beers in Sweden for a famous Swedish blog.
We simply like to brew!
Everybody will tell you “we use the best ingredients” bla bla bla. It’s just obvious! We are bored to see always the same beers, the same old styles…so, in respect of the ancient knowledges and traditions, we try to innovate and experiment trying to create original beers that are sons of our everyday life emotions, emotions that we hope you’ll find in the glass.
Every beer is also paired or inspired by a music album, and we design our own labels cause it’s part of our view, art has 360°.
