Beer drinkers rejoice – you can now eat beer on toast, or crepes or ice cream!
The invention is the result of a joint venture between two Italian companies.
Co-founder Emanuela Laurenzi explains how their longtime friend, a chocolate maker, inspired the project.
“It looked like Pietro Napoleone, the owner of the chocolate shop, was making fun of us telling us that it would be possible to eat beer and not only drink it and that it was just a matter of thickening it. So just like chemists, we started to experiment with different types of beers.” Emanuela Laurenzi said.
And the result? Two kinds of spreadable beer: one, critics say, is delicate and light, while the other has a more intense aroma and stronger taste.
“We created a cream made of beer by balancing every ingredient we used and also by knowing the reactions are made by mixing these ingredients: so we’ve created a product which is very smooth and creamy, resulting, as the name itself suggests, in a spreadable beer because it can be spread just like a chocolate cream.” Francesca Napoleone, Commercial Manager of Napopeone Chocolate Makers said.
