It is no ordinary beer but an all-round experience which encourages you to try new pairings. A well-balanced, hearty beer, a useful beer: just as the word of Dante is food to the human soul, so this beer gives a helping hand at mealtimes. It is the perfect accompaniment to the great Italian culinary tradition and enters our kitchens to give us new emotions. The very best spring water, malt, hops and yeast are selected to meet the strictest quality standards. And then the artisan brewing method is added to make it a classic taste of Italy, never a foregone conclusion, mysteriously accomplished.
water is the main ingredient in beer and accounts for about 90% of the total content.
TERZA RIMA uses pristine, unspoiled springs of superior quality.
the malting process is the controlled germination of a cereal. TERZA RIMA uses malt which it sources from the neighbouring hills.
hops are a climbing plant whose female flowers are used to make beer. They give a bitterness and flavour to the beer. Hops were introduced into brewing as early as 1200.
TERZA RIMA uses just the right amount of hops to create a unique, unmistakable product.
yeast is a microorganism which is used extensively in the food industry. In beer it makes the wort sugars ferment and helps transform them into ethyl alcohol, carbon dioxide and a series of secondary products which are key to the final flavour of the beer. There are “bottom fermentation” yeasts (Saccharomyces carlsbergensis) which ferment at temperatures of around 8°/14° C and produce beers like Pilsner, Bock, lager etc. and “top fermentation” yeasts (Saccharomyces cerevisiae) which ferment at temperatures of around 16°/24° C and produce beers like English ales, Belgian beers, Weizen etc..
TERZA RIMA is a top fermentation beer, which uses only carefully selected natural yeasts.
