Since then our story has continued unbroken for over 130 years.
Angelo Poretti left Varese when he was quite young.Travelling throughout Europe he discovered beer, which inspired his most important dream:
In Austria, Bohemia and Bavaria, Angelo Poretti met the best brewers, learning their recipes and the secrets of their profession.
When he came back to Italy, he invested his life savings in building his brewery in Valganna, a location specifically chosen for its extremely pure water, a fundamental ingredient for producing top quality beer.
