I hadn’t planned on visiting this shop but stumbled upon it while on a cross-city walk returning from Termini. Several coolers of multinational craft beers were available in expensive single format as is typical. Also typical is the need to vigilantly observe best-by dates in all these bottles. Even the best stores in Rome seem willing to sell long-since expired beer; to its credit, I suppose, this shop was at least selling some of the worst offenders at clearance prices. We purchased a pair of Hammer IPA’s to invigorate our spirits as we walked - a distinct pleasure for sure, if lessened by the constant visual reminders of Rome’s recycling issues. Discarded Peroni bottles might outnumber pigeons here.
One of my best ever ’bottleshop’ experiences. Wanting to buy some rare and interesting Italian craft beer to take back to UK I visited Domus Birrae shortly before their closing time and spent an unhurried 20-30 minutes with a very helpful and enthusiastic young lady who talked me through the different brewers and styles available. Came away with a good selection of big bottles for sharing back home plus a couple ’to go’ it’s a top notch place to visit for Italian craft beer when in Rome.
Good bottleshop, only a short walk from Termini. Wide selection of Italian beers, some European and US too. Three fridges full of ready-to-rate stuff and even more in the "back room". Selection is varied and quite decent, service is friendly and prices are fair.
Nice bottle shop in a large street with a very nice selection of beers, mostly italian however also some dutch, belgian,us, danish etc... chilled beers and a the barrel aged beers kept in a glass cabin with a lock. Decent prices for Rome. Got some good advice on local stouts, nice and friendly staff. Would visit them again.!
(Original rating 25-08-2014) Very near Termini station, just a quick 5 minutes walk on Via Cavour. Huge place, at least compared to other beer shops I visited. Tons and tons of bottles (both chilled and room temperature, but in a darkish room), it’s pretty much impossibile to go home unhappy. Italian micros and American craft breweries seem to be the biggest emphasis, but there are a few Belgian and Dutch beers as well. Some glasses and various merchandise (i.e. t-shirts). Service could be slightly better.. The prices are on the high side, I agree with that. But it’s Rome, and near Termini, so it’s kinda expected. If Domus Birrae was next door, I’d be broke every damn month. Good. *** Third update: the selection is still great, but, imho, this shop is getting worst every month. The service is pretty much non existent. Sometimes plain rude and uninterested, others literally non existent. The last time I visited there was no one in the shop for 10 minutes! Trying to sell a can with a BB date of April 2015 wasn’t cool either. (From 80 to 72) ***
A place with one of the largest beer selections available in the city (at least from the places I visited). Spacy and well organized shelved, though the price labels were not very clear on all bottles. The most rare bottles were also within a decent price range.
Great location down the street from Termini Station. The front room has fridges full of beer to drink on site which is great. The back room is where the magic happens with the best selection of top shelf stuff from all over Italy and Europe with a scattering of things from the US. A really well curated selection with prices in line with places in Rome though some get pricey - usually for rare stuff. Probably the most interesting selection of to go bottles in Rome.
