This weekend I had the pleasure of helping with the Italian Feast of San Gennaro. More specifically my family were responsible for about thirty – yes 30! – children between the ages of 5 – 8 years of age as we prepped them for the parade and then tried to keep them in some sort of order until their performance on-stage to dance the Italian Tarantella and sing some songs. All I can say is after 4 hours of 30 children + their parents — we definitely earned a drink!
Although there as a full bar at the festival, with no doubt some tasty wine, it seemed that the logical choice on a hot afternoon after a morning of wrangling children was an ice cold beer – Birra Moretti in fact! Oh my gosh, it was perfectly cold and refreshing. I can honestly say that the Birra Moretti showed up at my table at the most perfect time. We had just polished off some pizza, we had gone through the ice water and then there it was – a clear plastic cup filled with an appetizing amber liquid placed right in front of me. The taste can be described with a single syllable — “ahhhh”.
