Two Italian companies, Rieti chocolate-maker Napoleone and Cittareale brewery Alta Quota, have developed a new way to consume your beer, 'beer pate' that can be spread on your toast.
The beer pate, described as "a sweet, beer-scented jelly," can be consumed with toast, as a cake filling, and with cheese or appetisers.
The makers have revealed that there are two kinds of beer spread, one which is delicate and another has a more intense aroma and stronger taste.
The pate has been made with a combination of two beer varieties from Alta Quota, Omid dark ale and Greta blond ale.
Alta Quota's Claudio Lorenzini said that many other people in Italy and Europe have tried to make a non-liquid beer, but the experiments carried out have not been successful because the combination of ingredients was not a winner.
Lorenzini asserted that his company believes that they have found the right formula with the use of high-quality products.
