Got there due my holiday, thanks to someone recommended this one at the forum here. Small store, smaller then expected, but a decent selection of International beers for sure. A bit expensive, like most of Italy, but doable. Found me some beers over there, but not as many as I hoped for, specially cause of the somewhat higher prices. Would visite this one again if I’m close for sure.

Quite small, but very well stocked shop near the lake in Arona. Good amount international beers, but I was more impressed with the Italian selection. Lots of small craft breweries, Baladin, etc, and also good selection of glassware.
Would definitely stop here again next time I’m in the area.

Deceivingly small shop in a beautiful town on the Lake Maggiore, very picturesque. Majority of the beers are on wooden shelves, ordered by country and style, then there is a fridge.
Good selection from all over the world, great attention to the national scene.
The owner, Genny Vinci, has written with Simone Pilla a book called "400 beers from all over the world" (Cubotto, Italy). A very kind and prepared person, a true collector and beer connoisseuse!
They also have a selection of glassware and various nice gadgets, to complete the picture.
Prices are on the average, sometimes high, especially on fashionable stuff like Brewdog etc., due to the absence of competiotion in the area.

La bottega della birra ti colpisce subito giŕ dalla vetrina, davvero gradevole e ben allestita. All’interno c’č una vasta selezione di birre, davvero ottima, considerando che non siamo in una grande cittŕ. Si entra dentro e si viene letteralmente assaliti da due "muri di birra", disposti su strutture di legno (e non le solite "impalcature" in ferro tipiche di certi beer shop). La proprietaria č molto gentile e preparata sempre pronta a qualsiasi spiegazione. Unico neo: la selezione di birre straniere non č sempre molto curata ed č un po’ carente nelle birre del nordeuropa (Mikkeller, De Molen, Nogne O, ecc.)
