Bettini 604 beer with lentils or spelt is a product that combines tradition and innovation. Norcia, a small town located in the Umbrian region of Italy, is famous for its cuisine and its high quality food products. Lentils and spelt are two ingredients widely used in the culinary tradition of Norcia and the idea of using them to produce beer was born to enhance and promote local products.
Blonde beer with Castelluccio di Norcia IGP lentils (4%)
Lentil is a legume rich in proteins, vitamins and minerals and is a traditional food of Norcia. Known for its unique and nutritious flavor, it is used to produce a beer with an intense and characteristic taste. The addition of lentils gives the beer an earthy note and an interesting complexity of flavors.
Ingredients: water, barley malt, lentils of Castelluccio di Norcia PGI 4%, hops, yeast. Contains gluten.
The dark beer, the red, with a more decisive tone, is for all those looking for a more complete flavor and we also recommend it to accompany more spicy dishes.
We recommend the craft beer Bettini 604 red to complete a good roast or to accompany the tasting of the famous Farecchiata, the typical recipe of Castelluccio di Norcia made with Roveja flour.
Craft Red Beer with spelt (10%)
Spelt is an ancient cereal very present in the cuisine of Norcia. Due to its high digestibility and nutritional profile, spelt is considered a superfood. Used to make a beer, spelt gives the drink a soft and delicate taste.
Ingredients: water, barley malt, spelled 10%, hops, yeast. Contains gluten.
The 604 beer in the “blonde” version is perfect for a frugal aperitif with friends and in the same way ideal for a pizza with friends.
An aperitif with soft salami, a little IGP ham from Norcia and a bit of seasoned capocollo will be even more appreciated if the Bettini 604 clear craft beer is present in the aperitif.
