Birra Nursia Extra has a beguiling dark brown hue with luminous ruby reflections and a creamy, frothy head. Its aroma is characterised by notes of fresh yeast, dark berries and stone fruits, embellished with a touch of cocoa. It is a well structured beer dominated by multi flavours with hints of caramel and liquor, rounded off by a warm, dry and peppery finish.

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.
Drink whilst sampling a range of hard cheese. Enjoy with sauce-laden meat dishes such as bolognese with sausage, speck or game alongside red fruit jelly or dried fruit pies. Equally well served with white pizza topped with sausage, mushroom and truffle cream, or Four Seasons with walnuts.
We chose the former pizza with a side of cured hams and gorgonzola.
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.
