Menabrea is an Italian brewing company located in Biella, Italy .In 1846, Giuseppe Menabrea travelled to the town of Biella, in the foothills of the Italian Alps. There he discovered an underground cave system, ideal for the traditional brewing process. Combined with the incredibly pure water and cold fresh air of the region, it was the perfect location to build a brewery. Menabrea is the oldest continuously producing brewery in Italy. For over 150 years the family have brewed their remarkable beer using their own recipe and only five simple ingredients: water, barley, hops, yeast & brewer's maize. Menabrea is distributed by Tennent's in the UK market.

Below are some notes to help identify some of these changes and an aid to reference the year of the glass.
