While waiting for the start of the installation in Pigneto on Tuesday, I sat at the bar and sipped on a Peroni. To me it’s kind of like the Budweiser of Italian beer, but then I was helpfully reminded by Omino71 that is was sold to SABMiller in 2005….the demise of an Italian brand! Another popular and cheap brand is Moretti, but that was bought by Heineken in the 90s. Ichnusa, a Sardinian beer, was also acquired by Heineken.
What beers are still Italian? Definitely Menabrea, which is a personal favorite.
