Move over Nutella – there’s an innovative creation on the shelves for chocolate and beer lovers. Lifelong friends and co-founders, Emanuela Laurenzi of Alta Quota Brewery and Pietro Napoleone of Napoleone Chocolatiers in Cittareale combined their expertise to create “spreadable beer.”  A one-of-a-kind dream product for those who favor hops, it’s been described as sweet, smooth, and creamy. Available in both light and dark beer options, the ‘Omid Dark Ale’ has a more robust, full-bodied flavor while the ‘Greta Blond Ale’ features a delicate, light taste. It can be eaten on toast, used as a cake/tart filling, cake frosting or crêpe spread and complements cheese as well. It’s sold in jars at the UK department store Selfridges, retailing for about US$12.50 each.

Emanuela Laurenzi, co-founder of Alta Quota, told Italy Magazine about the origins of the ingenious spreadable beer:

Pietro Napoleone… 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.
