Birria di Capriccio is now available via draft & 4 pack cans at Café Capriccio!

This collaboration with Artisanal Brew Works was something we’ve been brewing about for a long time.. finally our friends, family & beloved customers may sip on this all summer!

The word Capriccio refers to a lively piece of music or art. Like its name implies, Birra Di Capriccio is lively, and refined. Lightly dry hopped with European Hops, this modern Italian-Style Pilsner was created in collaboration with our own brewer Franco Rua . Brewed with tradition in mind, this crisp and refreshing beer is best enjoyed with friends, family, and food. 🍻🇮🇹

At Café Capriccio we have a unique dynamic with our staff, we really have a family here. In fact, in the 40 years of business we’ve seen many of our staff grow to become star chefs, business owners, and sommelier turn wine mogul (Joseph Carr )

When we hire someone, it’s because they have the same passion we do. We work with local farms, we grow our own products, we make many items by hand, and use old world techniques to cultivate a menu that sets us apart from the run of the mill and makes us truly Capriccio.

Join our team & grow with us.
