In recent years, Italian beers have begun to gain popularity by leaps and bounds in foreign markets. Until not too long ago there were very few people who knew that Italy was also a country producing high-quality beers.
Peroni is the most popular beer brand in the country, along with the Moretti beer. A type of lager beer with very little alcoholic content and that is bitter at the end. It was born in the region of Lombardy in the year 1846, specifically in the town of Vigevano. 18 years later, the Peroni family, its owner, moved the factory to Rome; that was the turning point of the brand. From then on, this beer spread throughout Italy. However, it was not until the 90s of the 20th Century that its international expansion began.
