Leading Italian lager, Birra Moretti, has introduced two new beers to its range, specifically for the Italian restaurant market. The two ‘Le Regionali’ beers, ‘Birra Moretti Alla Toscana’ and ‘Birra Moretti Alla Siciliana’ – meaning Birra Moretti in the Tuscan and Sicilian style – pay tribute to the typical flavours and aromas found in Tuscany and Sicily.

Produced in Italy, under the careful care of Birra Moretti’s professional brewmasters, both beers can be enjoyed on their own or as an accompaniment to the rich variety of Italian dishes.
David Lette, Premium Brands Director, said, “Consumers are seeking more exciting and premium food and drink matches, so this is a great opportunity for Italian restaurateurs to provide authentic, Italian-brewed beers.”
Birra Moretti Alla Toscana - ABV: 5.5% - Maremma Barley from Tuscany is the key ingredient to produce this well-rounded and full-bodied beer with a real depth of flavour and will work well with pasta, legumes and cereals dishes.
Birra Moretti Alla Siciliana - ABV: 5.8% - Zagara Blossom from lemon and orange trees is used in the brewing process, the result of which is a smooth and intense beer, with a fine, persistent and compact head and slight bitter notes enhanced by citrus and floral notes. This is ideal as an accompaniment to raw or grilled seafood.
Birra Moretti Le Regionali are part of the Birra Moretti Speciality Range. They are available in 500ml bottles to UK restaurateurs through the Italian wholesale channel.
