Beer of the Month — Peroni Nastro Azzurro

The Beer of the Month for August is Peroni Nastro Azzurro. Self described as a beer of Italian flair and style, it is golden-colored and strikingly crisp in flavor. What Kronenbourg is to France, Peroni is to Italy — easily the most exported beer from a country far more popular for their wine. That being said, Peroni wins on two accounts this month — it is light and refreshing yet has a distinct flavor, making it perfect for the August heat — and it’s only $3 a pop at Mike’s in Davis Square, a bar right down the road from my house.

This beer naturally goes well with Italian food — if you’re having a lighter Italian dish look here — but for a heavier dish, go with the red wine.

Beer of the Month — Kronenbourg 1664

The Beer of the Month for July is Kronenbourg 1664 — a French beer. Better known for their wine-making prowess, Kronenbourg is essentially the national beer of France and is by far the most frequently exported French beer. Described as a “Euro Pale Lager” the beer is golden in color, flavorful, and goes well with a variety of food. I’d classify it as a year round brew, but it is certainly refreshing — making it a great beer for the summer months.

You’ll find this beer all over Europe, but most decent beer stores of bars that carry a good selection of European beers will have this one. Give it a whirl — it’s one of my favorites.
