Peroni Nastro Azzurro is an Italian pale lager produced by Peroni Brewery, founded in Vigevano, Lombardy. The 5.1% abv beer was first brewed in 1963 and is now distributed internationally.
Nastro Azzurro translates to "Blue Ribbon" in English, referring to the blue ribbon won by the Peroni family at a Royal Household exhibition in Turin back in 1837.
The Peroni Brewing Company was founded in 1846 by Francesco Peroni in Vigevano, Italy. In those early days, Peroni supplied local restaurants and hotels with beer produced in their small brewery. As demand for Peroni grew, so did the size of the brewery, and today Peroni is one of Italy's most popular beers.
