La Viæmilia was the inaugural beer brewed at Birrificio Del Ducato. This lager is cellared for at least six weeks, the first week is for primary fermentation and the remaining 4 to 5 for lagering at 3◦C. Hop flowers are added during lagering.
The brewers travel to Tettnang, a small village in the south of Germany each September to select the Tettnang Tettnanger hops they will use for the next year.
