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.
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.
