Italian Beers

Italy’s beer story is that of another wine country with an illustrious brewing tradition slowly being monopolized by the large brewcorps and forced down the road of cheap lager like Peroni or Nastro Azzuro. However it’s a story with a happy ending as Italy is experiencing one of Europe’s most vigorous microbrew revivals. 

In Italy beer is historically an accompaniment to food (mainly Pizza) although due to the resurgent craft brewing scene it is becoming more and more popular with other foods and being enjoyed on its own.  Our favourite Italian brewery is Birrificio Italiano producing the globally acclaimed Tipopils and Bibock which both score over 95% on almost every beer rating site - well worth a try!

Though mainly known for its wine, Italy is undergoing somewhat of a brewing renaissance. Avoid mass-produced lagers like Peroni and Moretti, and explore some of Italy's many microbreweries such as Birrifico Italiano and Loverbeer.

IPA - Due to the country's general lack of brewing history, Italian brewers have taken inspiration from all over the globe. Hoppy, American-style IPAs like Brewfist Spaceman are one of the most popular styles of Italy's beer revolution.

Experimental ingredients - A number of Italy's relatively new microbreweries use non-traditional beer ingredients in their brews. These ingredients are often locally sourced, giving their beer styles adopted from all over the globe an authentically Italian twist.  Birra Baladin famously used roasted chestnuts in a brew, while Brewfist's collaboration with To Ol, Space Frontier, uses grape must - how much more Italian can you get?

Only had one order delivered so difficult to comment, delivery was on time although printing off and placing this in place where case was to be left appeared a complete waste of time as it was left on doorstep despite my instruction to leave behind side gate!, where I left the printed document!! Beers ordered very good, with good selection on offer., may use again but can get good offers in local area so we will see.
Excellent service with rapid and safe delivery. Great selection of beer from around the world. I definitely would recommend Beer Hawk to anyone who is tired of flavourless mainstream beer!
Although previously I been happy with the Service at Beerhawk, at the time of writing this review I have paid for the beer, been promised delivery twice, been told it has been delivered twice, found that the beer has been sent to an address in Reading (over 200 miles from where I live), been promised numerous phone calls to keep me upto date with the situation but yet again I will be ringing the company myself to find out when I can expect my beer
