Thank you Italy, specifically the Rieti chocolate-maker Napoleone and Cittareale brewery Alta Quota.
The makers debuted the pâté at the Salone del Gusto food fair in Turin, where chocolate maker Pietro Napoleone described his creation as “like a sweet, beer-scented jelly.”
There are two kinds of beer spread: one is delicate, while the other has a more intense aroma and stronger taste. The pâté is made using two beer varieties from Alta Quota, Omid dark ale and Greta blond ale.
Alta Quota’s Claudio Lorenzini said: “This is not the first time in Italy and in Europe that someone has tried to make a non-liquid beer, but the experiments carried out have not been successful because the combination of ingredients was not a winner. We believe that we have found the right formula with the use of high-quality products….”
Napoleone said of his collaboration to produce the culinary innovation: “For us this is the future.”
BRB. Going to Italy.
