330ml Bottles £1.51 In Stock
Description: Menabrea 1846 is a premium strength lager beer at 4.8%ABV.
Addititve free, it is the only Italian lager still brewed using a completely natural 'slow fermentation' process, that makes use of spring water from the Alps and ingredients from the Czech Republic, Germany and France.
Unlike mass produced beer, no water is later added to standardise the alcohol content. The results are a testament to eight generations of brewing expertise by the Menabrea family - a full bodied beer with a light colour and optimum flavour.
Menabrea 1846 has won numerous international awards, the first being the Gold medal Award at the London International Exhibition in 1925, and the most recent being the top prize for two years running at the Chicago International Beer Championships (1997 & 1998), beating such renowned products as Grolsh Premium, Kirin and Heineken.
'Pale yellow appearance. Moderately light bodied. Mild bitterness. Subtly hopped. Reminescent of grains, dried herbs, citrus zest. Crisp, grainy palate with lively carbonation. Refreshing, this needs a good chill. Dry style with good flavour'. (winning entry description)

The historic Menabrea brewery, which is the oldest in Italy, was built in 1846 in the town of Biella at the foot of the Italian Alps. Still run by the founding family, it is now the country's own fully Italian owned brewery.
Menabrea 1846 is still brewed in the original building, which boasts an extensive network of underground cellars where the beer is fermented and aged.
