Italian Beer Renaissance

As I lover of real beer, I am ashamed to admit that I am very inexperienced in the world of Italian beers. I once drank a bottle of the disappointingly mediocre Peroni beer, but that’s about it. The New York Times Evan Rail writes about the explosion of the craft brewing scene in wine-loving Italy:

“Around Italy, a craft beer scene has sprung up, bringing well-made specialty brews into haute cuisine dining rooms and elevating the fare served in brew pubs, creating an attractive destination for beer lovers who also love great food. “Italian brewers have done a wonderful job of making it clear that they are the same sort of artisans as chefs and others involved in food,” said Stan Hieronymus, the author of “Brew Like a Monk”.”
