Birra Nursia Bionda is a golden, luminous beer with a creamy, compact and persistent head. Its fresh aroma is enhanced by hints of coriander and lemon zest. With time, it matures to become an ethereal floral perfume. The palate is enlivened by the hop and malt notes. The cheerful carbonation and the gentle, dry finish nicely round of the body of this beer.

Europe's Trappist monks were the first to revive monastic brewing after the desolation of the European abbeys under Napoleon in the early 19th century. Birra Nursia follows in the illustrious footsteps of these fabled Belgian beers, balancing its Trappist heritage with a careful crafting to suit the famed meats, cheeses, pizzas and pastas of the Italian region of Umbria.
Starters of cheese and vegetables, followed by delicate artichoke tortellini and oven-cooked white meats. Complements pizzas such as Four Seasons, white pizzas with artichokes and cured ham, or cooked ham with cheese and asparagus.
We enjoyed a delicious home-made spinach and ricotta tart with roast asparagus and a handful of chargrilled artichokes as sides.
Not only are the monks of The Monastery of San Benedetto in Monte setting out to re-establish the authentic Benedictine tradition in the heart of European monasticism - Norcia, the birthplace of Saint Benedict - but they do this against the backdrop of the devastating 2016 earthquake that ruined much of the surrounding Umbrian communities. In rebuilding their monastic ruins which sit on the side of a picturesque mountain, they seek to inspire others to re-establish their ancient villages throughout the nearby valleys. The beers they produce allow them to continue to build a spiritual oasis that will last for centuries to come.
