Peroni Nastro Azzurro will be available at the America’s Cup Sports Bar and concessions throughout the America’s Cup Park, at Piers 27/29. At the America’s Cup Village, at Marina Green, the beer garden will serve Peroni Nastro Azzurro.

“The America's Cup and its athletes represent the gold standard in racing,” said Ryan Verschoor, U.S. Brand Director of Peroni Nastro Azzurro. “The Louis Vuitton Cup and the America’s Cup Finals are world-class events that serve as symbols of quality and distinction, and Peroni Nastro Azzurro is proud to share and celebrate these values as ‘The Official Beer of the America's Cup.’”

Opening day at the America’s Cup is July 4. The America’s Cup Park, at Piers 27/29, opens at noon, with an opening ceremony – a ticketed event at the AC Pavilion within the Park – starting at 3:00pm. Fans at the America’s Cup Village can enjoy the ceremony via big screens.
