Poretti

“At the age of 47 Angelo Poretti realised his dream and built his own brewery in Italy”

When Angelo Poretti decided to leave his home town Varese and travel around Austria, Bavaria and Bohemia, getting to know beer and its secrets, he became a passionate blonde drink lover with a dream to brew his own beer. At the age of 47, his life-long dream came true. In 1877 he opened the beautiful Birrificio Angelo Poretti brewery in Valganna: this land is precious thanks to its sources of pristine water, a crucial ingredient for high quality beer.

This voyage through Northern Europe, and meetings with the very best Master Brewers was the start of Angelo Poretti’s story. Now over 130 years on, the Master Brewers at the Angelo Poretti Brewery expertly blend the various varieties of hops to create unique recipes like Poretti 3 – an easy-drinking lager with a fresh, thirst-quenching flavour perfect for pairing with daily meals.

This beer appeals to those looking for an authentic Italian recipe, quirky beer with real flavour and heritage.
