This is the story of a family with a vision. The Peroni family were charismatic, spontaneous and passionate in their attitudes and behaviours. Francesco Peroni founded Birra Peroni, the biggest Italian brewery of its time and the business was going well, but the family liked to challenge conventions and had greater plans in mind. They were always passionate about sailing, the sea and all things nautical. Following the success of the SS Rex, and surrounded by a world of changes in 1960's Italy with cultural icons and iconoclasms abounded, the family decided to create an icon of their own; the first Italian premium lager for the most demanding consumers. An aspirational lager that would embody the sophistication, confidence and innovative character of the great Italian icons of style. A beer which would represent the optimism, creativity and enthusiasm of the era in which it was born.
Peroni is a standard, crisp lager that offers faint aromas and flavors of husky grain, semidried grass and whole hop cone. There's a metallic streak throughout, and the body is light and easy, with medium carbonation and a dry finish. An easy-drinking selection that's well matched with fatty bar items like pizza and fried foods. Birra Peroni.
