"SWIMRUN is the desire to defeat your own limits, while discovering unique places and having fun with people who share the same passion; when YOU SWIMRUN the stopwatch is the last of the protagonists. (Diego & Veronica)

Beer, a long history
There are two aspects that have always characterized the history of beer over the centuries: a worldwide diffusion and its popularity in any social circles. It is not known exactly where it was born: some people say Mesopotamia, others Egypt, some mention the Orkney Islands, and others even Malta. We don't think that this is very important, what is truly important is to be with us in Pallanza!
