Asahi UK has expanded its Peroni Nastro Azzurro lineup with a new variant, “Stile Capri.” Targeted at younger consumers, Peroni’s latest offering has lower alcohol content (4.2%) than the company’s core lager brand, Peroni Nastro Azzurro (5.1%). The new beverage will be available across the UK and Ireland later this month in Sainsbury’s, Asda, Tesco, M&S Food and Waitrose outlets.

But with the UK market for alcohol changing, are UK consumers thirsty for a new beer?
