Octoberfest - Italian Style
While the Germans may have made their beer synonymous with the month of October, the whole world has adopted the month of October to enjoy beer in general. While Italy is known for its fine wines, the consumption of beer is rapidly growing; even though that amount does not yet rival its neighboring countries. So to help those who wish to observe Octoberfest with Italian beer, here are three beers that you can find at your nearest Doris Italian Market & Bakery.
While Peroni is the top selling beer in Italy, Moretti Beer, established in 1856, is quickly gaining ground. Available at Doris Italian Markets is the Standard Birra Moretti and La Rossa. If you get a chance to visit Italy, there are many microbreweries opening up throughout the country and the quality is said to be superior.
