It was in 1846 that Francesco Peroni started the brewery that would soon become the leader of the Italian beer market. Today, over 150 years later, the Peroni family still oversees the company’s four breweries, making it possible to maintain an extremely high standard of excellence. Brewed with the finest spring barley malts, Peroni is a full-bodied golden lager with a smooth and well-balanced hop taste.

“Hibernation Ale is an English-Style Old Ale/Strong Ale, with 8.1% alcohol by volume. It is a robust ale that is exceptionally balanced with a malty, warming character and assertive hops.
