Adventurous is: Racing in the Mille Miglia

by Sandy Kurbis

For us, we embrace the idea that adventure is good. We believe that there is nothing more important than pushing your limits and taking the road less traveled in every aspect of life. It is this idea of adventure that made Shawn & Ed want to open a brewery together.

It is also this idea of adventure that has encouraged Shawn to race in the Mille Miglia every year. The Mille Miglia is an annual classic car race through Italy – travelling from Brescia to Rome and back. This year, Shawn is racing his 1929 Chrysler 75.

The very first Mille Miglia (thousand miles) was in 1927 and took place twenty four times until 1957. It was then reborn in 1977 as a regularity race for classic and vintage cars produced no later than 1957. This will be Shawn’s 5th time participating in the race. Follow along with us this week as we support Shawn and guide you through the Mille Miglia 2016.

Everyone here at the brewery is cheering Shawn in his quest for victory (which may be simply finishing the race given his car was built in 1929).
