Angelo Poretti Tre Luppoli 
Posted: 3 July 2015  Beer Republic 2.5 
Angelo Poretti Tre Luppoli from Italy Angelo Poretti is another 19th century Italian brewery now delivering beer to 21st century Italian mouths.   Today, Carlsberg Italia owns the entire operation.    This is not a lager you want to be forced to buy because it's the only one on sale in the one beer shop that's about to close.   
Avg price/liter: USD 4.95   ABV %: 4.8  Type: Lager   
       


Angelo Poretti is another 19th century Italian brewery now delivering beer to 21st century Italian mouths.  The brewery was founded in 1877 by Angelo Poretti in Induno Olona.          

The giant powers that be would like you to still believe Angelo's descendents are brewing his beers to this day with his extra special recipes.  Over a twenty year period starting in 1982, the Carlsberg Group gradually started buying shares of Angelo Poretti in 25% chunks.  Today, Carlsberg Italia owns the entire operation.        

Tre Luppoli, once translated, means "three hops."  Three different types of hops go into Tre Luppoli's manufacture. Most of the time, the researcher in me would go online to find out what these three hops were.  But after I sipped this beer, sharing it with my brother in the apartment we rented in Florence, the only research I needed to do was find the nearest drain to dump the beer down.         

Admittedly, I was biased from reading the back label which clearly indicated Carlsberg Italia was behind it.  My taste buds hadn't been treated so well a few days earlier with Carlsberg's Russian beer Baltika 7 Export.  Over the years, as Carlsberg has spread its tentacles from Malawi to Malaysia and I've sampled beers along the way, I've come to see it as very average run-of-the-mill brews, with a few exceptions.         

Tre Luppoli, however, isn't average. It's abysmal and has been torturing Italian mouths since its 2009 inception.  This is not a lager you want to be forced to buy because it's the only one on sale in the one beer shop that's about to close.
