#277 Peroni – Gran Riserva

Name: Gran RiservaPeroni Gran Riserva
Brewery: Birra Peroni Industriale (Rome, Italy)
Style: Heller Bock
ABV: 6.6%
Source: i Caruzi

Honest to God, I think I must have left my brain behind in Melbourne (possibly with the Tuatara Double Trouble – which it turns out was 10.5%!) because once again I’ve stuffed up the blogging order.

So while the last post was about a beer I drank on the way back from Australia, please excuse the fact that we are now back in Melbourne, the night before I left.

This beer was completely unremarkable, however the restaurant I had it at was incredibly good. Melbournians (or whatever it is you call yourselves), if you haven’t already been then get thee to i caruzi pizza in St Kilda and have yourself some Sicilian pizza. I thought I had already eaten the best pizza in the world (last year I made an offal pizza with lamb hearts, kidneys, liver, sage and bacon), but it turns out, this was better. (Who would have thought?)

And the beer – well, it was everything I expected it to be. Predominantly sweet and malty, with a slightly offensive raw-alcohol nose and flavours of fruit and metal. Is there an Italian word for “meh? If so I would use it here.

  1. “Melburnian”. The O just drops out, for some weird and charming English-heritage reason. It’s “Sydney-sider” I could never get my head around. And, what, “Brisbanian”? “Adelaider”? “Perthite”? It’s a nightmare of a country, for demonyms, now that I think of it.

  3. I work with Robyn in Auckland and heard about the beer blog. I live in N. California (Fort bragg)- we have a great brew pub there http://www.northcoastbrewing.com. I hope you get to try some sometime. Also, just read of “Best Beer in the World from the Russian River Brewing Company’s Pliny the Younger. Nice blog. J Wallace
