Peroni Nastro Azzurro – or Just ‘Peroni’
Peroni Nasta Azzurro, which is often shortened to just ‘Peroni’, is one of the most popular beers in the world that originates from Italy. While incredibly popular, Peroni remains a unique option for beer drinkers, particularly during the summertime. The light and drinkable body of this lager make it an ideal choice for the warmer months, and when served chilled, it can be incredibly refreshing. Whether you’re going out for a drink, or for a meal altogether, you can seldom go wrong with a Peroni – consider trying it out this summer!
As far as the Italian beer market goes, the Birra Moretti brand might just be the runner-up to Peroni in terms of popularity, at least here in America. Birra Moretti offers a number of tempting beers that can suit virtually any occasion, event, or meal. Among the options to choose from are their trademark lager, which is not too different from the aforementioned Peroni lager, and the Doppio Malta, which is an enhanced version of their classic lager, but with a bit more taste and heft. Should you come across Birra Moretti at your next meal out, or even at your local beer/wine/liquor store, consider giving it a shot!
Birra del Borgo
Though far less popular than the previous brands we mentioned, Birra del Borgo’s products are still a solid choice to go with any Italian-inspired meal, or really for any occasion that involves drinks. If you consider yourself a fan of many different types of beer, then this company may be the right choice, as they offer a wide variety of products including ales, lagers, IPAs, and even stouts.
