Since we were staying in Trastevere this little store was a brief walk away; it has only been housed in this more central location for a few months now. Impressive bottle availability. The only store I saw with Cantillon and Drie Fonteinen available for purchase in plain view. As with other top stores, checking bottle dates is unfortunately a must. The proprietor was of great assistance to us in answering a few esoteric wine questions in addition to beer assistance. I would characterize this store, with its balanced focus on craft alcohol of all varieties, as one of the finest in Rome, though not on a different plane with respect only to beer than the other top stores.

Fairly far out from the center but possible to get to with public transport and a bit of a walk, it is however well worth the visit! Easier to miss if you donít have the street number but no problem if youíre prepared. The selection is not huge but certainly high quality, with a variety of international beers. The owner was extremely friendly and helpful and I left happy wishing I could carry more bottles! Worth going out of the way for.
Great, great place. In my favourite neighbourhood of Rome, quite underground space wise, but easy to find if you know the correct civic number. One big room and a small one. Two full fridges with cold beers, with the possibility to open a quick one and drink it on site. Fantastic selection, great names from the UK (Kernel, Buxton, Beavertown, Moor), Belgium, Italy, Netherlands (mainly De Molen), Denmark and Germany, with many small and hard to find little breweries. I wonít say anything about the huge lambic/wild/sour ales selection as I am yet quite ignorant on that matter, but there were many, many interesting bottles. On top of that, the service was pretty much perfect: as soon as I entered the place, I felt at home. The owner is kind, friendly, enthusiastic and passionate about beer. Correct prices overall, maybe on the high side, but I can understand that. Totally recommended, Iíll be a regular, thatís for sure.
amazing place! the owner is so friendly and service minded! he put away bottles for me just for my arrival to roma! and the bottles was awesome some uli blends (3 differnet) and de cam from 2000! its so worth a detour! the lambic selection is awesome and the italian brews is amazing! he shared some drink ins aswell and they where amazing! one off the italian brews reminded me of pliny the elder!
Piacevolissima sorpresa. CíŤ una selezione di lambic che non ho mai visto in nessun altro posto a Roma. E poi ho visto tante altre chicchette da veri intenditori. Il proprietario Ť un appassionato vero, e gli scaffali parlano per lui. Sicuramente líambiente Ť parecchio buio essendo un locale seminterrato, ma se si tratta di birra da asporto Ť un posto dove non s puÚ non andare.
Beer and Wine shop (also few pastas and other food). The beer selection is less good than other top shops in Rome (Domus Birrae, Bir&Fud Bottega) but it seems you can find here more rare and hard to find beers. Less Italians beers, more Belgian beers here. There is also cold beer to drink on premise. Overall, I think the other shops are better.
Only a mail order from them, but a very good experience indeed. The owner is kind and knowledgeable, always asnwers email and knows alot especially about sours. You wouldnít expect that given this place is moslty a wine shop. Beer selection is small but very well organised. Incredible selection of lambics and some gems from all over the world. Quick and clean service and shipment. Reccomended
