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!

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.

First of all I have to say Iíve never met such a generous host as Alex was for us at RBESG, I just cannot thank him enough for that and for the amazing beer experience he has given us that weekend. As for his brasserie, itís wordclass as well. Great interior, beautiful tap system, great and daily rotating beer list, very nice staff (check the redhaired girl ;-), good to great food. Rooftop patio is excellent, looks like a German Biergarten and they even have different beers on than downstairs. Crowd is mainly young Italians from the alternative scene, very relaxed atmosphere here, especially after hours ;-) Donít know if the bottled beers we had were for sale as well, but if so this has the best bottle selection Iíve ever seen. Superb. Thanks again Alex, and I will definitely be back when in Rome!

A very nice place with a big terrace on the roof. Excellent tap beers and good bottle beers too. And real ales of course. The staff is very friendly. The owner is a beer mad in a good way. Cheers, Alex. Iīll be back (23-27.5.2009).

Ok this is a Tricky one. Yeah we were treated like Royalty when Alex Organised RBESG 2010 ... but even trying to ignore that This has to be one of the Best bars i have ever been into.
They had UK Cask ales from some of the better UK brewies, they had De Molen, Nogne, De struise and Mikkeller to name just a few from there many taps. Both Downstairs and the Wonderfull roof gardens were comfortableand relaxing places to eat and drink.
The food while too fish based for my liking was superb... so while my choice wasnt great what there was was amazing ... and if you liek fish well im sure this is just the place for you...
While i like the idea of only beer, whisky and water, I cant help but thinking a few choice alternatives would make it easier to get your mates along, and offer a decent soft drink for the driver... But the place seemed busy most of the time so it seems to be working...
The staff were amazing despite being served by three different people over the course of the evening they had my bill spot on (with a hefty discount from Alex) ive no idea how they managed to keep track of what i ordered as i wasnt sitting in one place all night, and some were ordered from the table others from the bar...
Yeah its dear (well normally Huge thanks to Alex for his generousity) but thats because they serve some of the best beers available sourced from all over the world. ... and while value is about the only area this one misses out on top spot on MY WIFE WOULD HATE ME TO LIVE NEAR HERE... as i would be there most nights, scared that i would miss out on the net great beer to appear...
And should i ever win the lottery the first thing i will be doing is picking Alexs brain on how to do the same thing here in Edinburgh ... If every town had a bar like this we could convert the Macro drinkers in there droves

Modern, but clean and relaxed atmosphere with non-intrusive background music playing at a pleasantly low volume. Excellent selection of US, Danish and Norwegian microbrews, a few of their own (Revelation Cat), and a nice rack of vintage lambics welcoming you at the door. Other Italian brews were hard to find, though. The bottle shop is also a very nice addition, with an awesome beer list and lower prices than at local specialized beer stores. Draught beers were also reasonably priced (all seemed to be 5 euros). Service was friendly and attentive, and the food arriived soon enough. The draught beers, on the other hand, were served pretty slowly (5-10 minutes) despite the high waiter-customer ratio. The menu was only on the wall, and only in Italian. Although the waiters tried their best in translating it, we ended up just ordering something that Google translate could make sense of. I didnít have much trouble with that - but my pregnant wife did, as she couldnít eat raw fish or eggs, lobster, etc. - so we had to be picky. The food we had was quite ok, but price-quality ratio could be improved. The desserts on the other hand were excellent, and well worth the 7 eur (prices not listed on the wall menu). Anyway, the total price was lower than expected (itís Italy - you never know what you get in the end...). Overall a very nice experience, and the best night weíve had here so far in Rome (which, as a city, has unfortunately been a big disappointment overall).

First off.. take a cab, especially if youíve already been drinking. Youíll need the time to keep drinking. Secondly, let Alex know youíre coming. Heís the first person Iíve seen cause Chris to be hungover. Wicked serious when it comes to drinking. 11:30p arrival after five hours of drinking and one searching. The second half of our marathon began at the taps, a unique collection of Belgians, Americans, and assorted Europeans. Very few Italian beers. Then Alex opened some Drie Fonteinen. Then Alex opened some Sakes. Then Alex took us upstairs, out of the posh modern setting riddled with couples to the concrete, roof-ed patio, grills lit, local crowds scuffling. Alex poured some IPAs. Alex poured some Norwegian Stouts. At this point we were shit-faced, so 4:20a arrives, bar is closed, people get kicked out, and we work our way back inside. Time to shoot Pappy 23! After Alex and the three of us downed three shots in probably 10 minutes, I turned and bolted for the toilet, puking immediately. The other two had horrendous mornings. We got back to our place at 6am, skull-fucked. Paid 0E for the night. Alex is a monster, come here to meet him (we hung out and got pizza the next day).
