First of all, from the Termini Area or central Rome, we found the H bus most convenient. Nice modern place. The terrace upstairs is really great too. Great selection of beers on tap, lots of lambics. They have great festivals too. The cellar is very very impressive, and there are a lot of good deals on the menu. Alex is a great host and his staff were friendly and very competent. A great place. Wish they had a few more Italian beers.

Outside the tourist area and located on the type of fast driving street where you donít expect to find a beer bar like this one. You wonít find many typical tourists in there. This bar attracts true beer-geeks as well as local beer lovers. The simple lighten 4:20 on the outside is not too inviting. Interior is surprising, this place is actually quite classy. Medium size, sits about 100. The setting (tables, chairs, dťcor) is as appropriate for easting as good dinner as it is for a long night of drinking. Food is unusual for a pub, a bit pricy and consists mainly of fish and seafood dishes. You can order snacks (fries, chicken wings, etc.). About one dozen tap lines with mostly non-italian micros. Some interesting items on tap but the tap list is not the main attraction. The bottle list is the reason you go there. Again the Italian micros are under-represented, Brasserie 4:20 is mostly about imported beer. Americans, Danishes, British, Belgians, Dutch, etc. You ask for the bottle list and they give you that long, very long list with a few hundreds of a bottles. A lot of De Molen, Mikkeller, etc. But then you can ask for the second bottle list, the one called the ďvintage listĒ that comes in a nice book. This one has the lambics and various aged and special vintage beers. All kind of old lambics, old vintages of BigFoot and others. You can order 3 Fonteinen Millenium (A LOT of them) or Isabelle Proximus at about 150 Euros a piece (ouch! over US$200). They have a few aged bottles that I personally believe should not be aged but overall this bottle list is to die for. Service is amazing and very knowledgeable. Each bottle is opened and poured as if it was a precious 3 Fonteinen Framboos. And if the owner (Alex) recognizes you as a beer geek he will open crazy bottle after crazy bottle. This guy is nuts. Alex is to Europe what Chris Lively of Ebenezerís is to North-America. I visited the place twice. This is one of my favourite beer bar on the planet.

Certainly a great place, but not necessarily my kind of place. Beerwise it seems too focussed on pulling in big names from overseas, and Iím mostly not a fan of most of the big names. (Just because its popular doesnít make it good applies just as much to craft brewers as it does to macro swill.) Alex was very friendly and talkative, so we got to know all about his beers, so we focussed entirely on those. Looking forward to some of the future beers heíll have in store. Food was expensive - to me, shocking. Maybe thatís because I come from the land of pub grub, and could feed a family of 4 for the price of 3 fancy prawns here. And at about 10e for a Mariage Parfait, this is more expensive than anywhere I know in Finland, and weíve got enormously higher alcohol taxes! However, a few freebies were thrown in, which made the final bill more than palitable. So many thanks, Alex, the selection of Roma for RBESG 2010 will hopefully bring us back here - and I hope your [undisclosed new brew] is ready soon!

My favorite place in Rome. located way off the beaten track this cavern like bar has an alluring atmosphere and is home to 30 taps + a dozen hand pumps. The staff here know their stuff & it feels a bit like a pilgrimage coming out here. It is also one of the larger bars I visited in Rome with a good 15-20 seats at the slick bar and at least a dozen tables. Even on a weekday night it got crowded as the night went on. When I visited they had a bunch of their house lambics & sours on tap which were great plus I tried a trio of excellent dark beers. A great night.

Yes Daaamnn. It was true what I read about this place before coming here. World class in every aspect! Rare beers - international. Amazing range of some of the best in the world. Service and interior the dopest. I will return!

Quite away out of the beaten track if you are staying on the other side of the river in the city center. But tram line 8 from Piazza Venezia stops a 1 block / 10 minutes walk from 4:20 and makes it easy going there. The bar is very nice and cozy with good ambiance, seating along the bar, and some smal tables, chairs, and a few couches along the other wall. About 22 taps on at our visit, 6 Revelation Cat, 5 from the (for me unknown) Japanese brewery Se Kadoia, De Molen, Schlenkerla, De Molen, Boon, Brewdog, etc.Impressive bottle list, expecially the vintage sours (not that i had any of these, going from 50 - 150 Ä) Good, freindly and knowable service wich speaks a good english. We didnt eat but the food looked tasty. Good value on the tap beers. Great place

One of the best beer bars Iíve visited. The space itself is awesome. The rooftop area is perfect for events, and the interior has got a ton of character. Lots of interesting beers on tap, especially from their Revelation Cat label. I had a West Coast IPA and the Pinot Blend on tap and they were both delicious. The bottle list is impressive, and the staff is first-class. Really happy I got to visit and meet Alex.

Straight to the point, this is the best bar I have ever visited. The atmosphere is cool, easy going with lots of young people catching up at the tables, and a few people hanging out at the bar. We went there on a friday evening. Place was crowded, but apparently thatís not only the case on friday, truth be told, I get why. The service was very good. We met a great bartender who spoke fluently English, which is a nice bonus in Italy. You canít have an official tasting flight, but he let us try everything we wanted from draught in small portions. I shared a Fouífoune and had a really nice talk. Weíre really sorry we didnít make it back the other night, we were way to tired! The selection of this place is absolutly unseen. The draught list contained very very small Italian local craft beers with only a few ratings, combined with Boon lambic blends made especially for this place... AWESOME!! Also De Molen beers aged for several years. And on top of all that Pannepot Wild on tap. That crazy. The value for all of these beers is very reasonable. You can also buy growlers at about 26 euro for 2L. We had their hoppy burgers as well, which were really tasty. A perfectly baked burger. Selection of food isnít huge, but very well chosen with fries and burgers. Overall, this is the coolest beer bar I have ever visited. I would recommend everyone who has the opportunity to visit this place, itís freaking awesome.

Beer selection is large and diverse with lots of hand-pumped real ales. Food is pricey but amazing and the suggested pairings are spot on. Interior is classy, warming and confortable. Service is helpful, if you can get the waiter to notice you.

Like fonefan I have to say canít claim to be 100% objective. The service and ambiance was probably helped by the RBESG event taking place here. But the food, the beer, the decoration, wasnít just made up for a weekend. Itís a cozy and relaxed place, completely dedicated to serving great (non-Italian only) beer and great food. The fish carpaccio and raw shellfish served with Drie Fonteinen Oude Geuze was simply one of my best meals ever. Lots of exciting beer on the tap list. And the roof top beer garden is an awesome night spot. Or so I have heard from more sober beer lovers :)

4:20 and Ma Che Siete Venuti a Faí alone are worth your plan ticket to Rome, know that.
