Oggi Birra Venezia riscopre le proprie origini con una birra artigianale prodotta con malti selezionati e fabbricata nel rispetto della Legge della Purezza (Reinheitsgebot) del 1516. Corposa e aromatica. Birra Venezia Rossa è una doppio malto prodotta con lieviti selezionati a bassa fermentazione e con malti di prima scelta che le conferiscono un caratteristico aroma tostato. Caratterizzata da un colore ambrato intenso, da una schiuma fine e persistente e da un aroma caramellato che sfuma in fragranze gradevolmente fruttate. Tipica birra da degustazione, Birra Venezia Rossa esprime il meglio di sé con piatti dai sapori decisi, formaggi stagionati, arrosti e carni rosse grigliate. Ingredienti: acqua, malto d’orzo, luppolo, lievito.
