The story of Peroni Nastro Azzurro begins in 1846, when Francesco Peroni established the Birra Peroni brewery in Vigevano, Italy. During the 60s, when Italy was setting the definition of style around the world with its Dolce Vita way of life, Peroni became representative of classic Italian style and culture. This premium beer has 5.1% alcohol by volume and is expertly brewed with only the finest quality two-row spring barley, maize, malts and hops following a meticulous production process. This gives Peroni its distinctive taste — refreshing and dry,
with a clear-cut, clean character and clarity, achieved through its exclusive brewing process.
