WARNING most link are out of date - This section will be soon updated

This section features a list (as complete as possible) of italian sites, and an ample but certainly not at all exhaustive selection of international links. Please tell me if any link is not working any more, thanks!

Notes:
  • Links are divided in two sections (italian e international)
  • Inside the two sections, links are ordered in different categories according to their subjects
  • Sites featuring more than one subject (not marginally) have their link duplicated in more than one subsection, but only to a maximum of two.
  • The calssification cannot always be so clear, so if you are looking for a subject read also the similar categories.
  • For "commercial" I mean company sites mainly oriented on advertising or selling their products. General beer information pages are not considered commercial even if hosted by commercial organizations (e.g. portals), and the same is true for amateur sites even if they have adv banners.
  • Recently added or modified links are marked with new, while my favourite are marked cool
