Donjon brewery rises out from Castello, a neighborhood of Cervinara AV Italy, from the intuition of a group of passionate homebrewers, who decided to take up the exploration and study the beer.
The brewery ‘s crest was taken from the stone entrance of an old dwelling of one of the most ancient families of the neighborhood, the Marros; it is composed of a shield featuring a dove in a chalice encircled by a serpent.
In heraldry the dove, Venus’ beloved bird –also notable in gospels references- symbolizes pure and chaste love, marital peace, a good unpretentious spirit, and tenderness. The dove has often been used as an emblem to express gratitude for being saved from a fray.
The snake symbolizes shrewdness, supremacy, eternity (because when biting its tail it forms a circle with no beginning or end), and caution.
