A leading beer brand will be bringing a taste of Italy to the capital this month as they open a pizzeria on Camden Street.

Inspired by its Italian heritage, Birra Moretti has collaborated with renowned Galway pizza makers, The Dough Bros, to create Pizzeria Birra Moretti.

Pizzeria Birra Moretti will open its doors on Camden Street from 22 -28 May, where The Dough Bros will showcase their modern take on an authentic Italian pizza recipe in Dublin for the very first time.

To celebrate the partnership, Birra Moretti and The Dough Bros have created ‘The Baffo’ pizza which has been specially created to honour the man that appears on every bottle of Birra Moretti.

Baffo, the man on the bottle, famously requested another glass of Birra Moretti in exchange for his image. The pizza recipe has been designed to perfectly complement the tasting notes of Birra Moretti.

‘The Baffo’ pizza features the best in Italian ingredients including; crushed san mariano tomato, parmigiana reggiano and double guanciale.

Birra Moretti Brand Manager Deirdre O’Shea said: “Birra Moretti is all about celebrating everyday Italian life. Good food and beer in great company is integral Italian culture and this is translated across the world through our beer.

“The Dough Bros reflect all of these values along with a passion for quality ingredients and a lot of laughs along the way. We are really looking forward to showcasing all that is great about Italian culture through this partnership.”

Speaking about the collaboration, Eugene Greaney from Dough Bros said: “Our ethos is to celebrate the very best of Irish Produce on the foundation of authentic Neapolitan/Italian wood fired pizza.

“Naples is where we learned our trade, Ireland is where we perfected it, so it made perfect sense for us to add an Italian beer that shares so many of the same values that we do. We are buzzin’ to welcome people to Pizzeria Birra Moretti. Good drink, good food, good company. That’s what it is all about.”
