Peroni Nastro Azzurro

Italian lager:
It makes me think of baseball.
Beer and World War Two.

Name: Peroni Nastro Azzurro
Type: lager
Venue: house

Review/notes: Baseball may not be the first thing you think when someone mentions Italy; fair enough.  When we lived in Holland we went to the World Baseball Classic and the Dutch and Italian national teams were actually very good.  The game became popular during WWII and never really left, with the Italians developing a league system based on US Major League Baseball.  The number of foreign nationals per team is limited to a few so it retains a national identity.  Every Peroni I have here, in Italy, or anywhere else makes me long for a summer travelling to the ballfields in Rimini, Bologna, and Parma.
