Birra Moretti is the official beer of The World's 50 Best Restaurant Awards in 2012.
Birra Moretti is a premium Italian beer, part of Heineken UK's world lager portfolio. First brewed in 1859, only the finest ingredients are used to make Birra Moretti, including a blend of high quality hops which give it a unique aroma and enhance its well balanced bitterness. The lager, at 4.6% ABV, has a very fine texture, fragrance of barley malt and delicate honey tone.
These characteristics mean that Birra Moretti is an ideal accompaniment or enhancement to a number of classic Italian dishes, such as risottos and pasta, white meat main courses and delicately flavoured cheese.
In Italy, Birra Moretti has a long association of working with top Italian cookery schools and chefs, leading to the creation of recipes in which beer is an ingredient and not just a drink to accompany a dish. This year Birra Moretti has teamed up with leading Italian restaurateurs Giancarlo and Katie Caldesi as the faces of Birra Moretti in the UK. With its unique heritage and taste Birra Moretti offers the chance for customers in pubs to experience the essence of Italy in the UK, both by cooking with the brand and offering it as an accompaniment to Italian dishes.
