Birra Moretti

Birra Moretti was an Italian brewery founded in 1859 by Luigi Moretti.  In 1996, the company was bought by Heineken.  Since this acquisition, Birra Moretti has been a product under the Heineken brand.  Currently, Birra Moretti beer is exported to over 40 countries in the world.

The beer itself is a pale lager, which means it is a pale light golden colored beer.  Notably, the beer has a slightly bitter hop flavor, most comparably to Heineken (hence the acquisition).  Birra Moretti can be purchased for around $8 at Hy-Vee.
