Trying to find a brewery or similar experience in Sienna.

My brother is getting married in Gaiole in Chianti Sienna and since the bridal shower will take place at a winery I wanted to set up something for him to enjoy with the other males attending. He likes making beer and I thought visiting a brewery would be fun. Does anyone have any ideas where to go around that area or something similar he could enjoy with the guys?

Tuscany in wine, wine, and more wine. Don't think you'll find a brewery, but maybe someone has some alternative ideas.

By typing "Microbreweries in Italy" into the Yahoo search bar I found the following:

Why not organize a stag lunch/dinner at Baldovino (in Florence, alas)? They have a long list of artisanal beers, mostly made in Tuscany ... some made with chestnuts, some made with farro ... some made with more usual ingredients ... but all totally good, new, with great depth, flavor, and heft. And they can prepare marvelous plates to help ameliorate the alcohol content (if so desired).

Just a thought.

Be aware that micro-breweries here are really micro! I visited one near Torniella not long ago and we saw everything in under 5 minutes while we picked up the beer.
