Sono stato solo al piano terra, in un affollato sabato sera. L’ambiente è bellissimo, per quel che ho visto arredato con gusto. Strapieno, nessun tavolo libero. I prezzi mi sono sembrati un po’ alti, soprattutto alcune belghe a 5,50 € per 25 cl. Ho fatto una breve fila al bancone e sono stato servito abbastanza rapidamente, ma ho notato che alcuni dei ragazzi difettano un po’ nella spillatura.
Da rivedere in una giornata più tranquilla, magari gustando qualche piatto.

Huge variety of beers from all the "special" microbreweries from Europe and USA. The place is fantastic. The staff is very polite and helpful. The prices for the draught beers are very very good, but the bottles are rather expensive. Food very nice as well.
Brasserie 4:20 represent the closest place to the Cockaigne for beer in Italy. You could stand for hours sitting at the bar and watching the shelf: I’ve never seen such a range of american beers in Italy, and so for many european labels like Mikkeller, Nogne, De Molen... nor to speak of the lambic (Cantillon 2002 or later, and 3 Fontainen too!!!). Also there’s a great vintage list, but unaffordable (some non-vintage bottles too, maybe).
Alex, the owner, is one of the greatest beer-fancier I’ve ever met; his passion doesn’t know edges. He has the right and best attitude: beer is something you have tp principally *drink* together. Don’t miss a chat with him if you are enough lucky to run into! However, his principal employee at the bar, Francesco, is kind and nice.
Desserts are DELICIOUS: taking "Tiramistout" accompained with the right beer it’s a commitment you can’t evade!!!
Perhaps food prices are not so cheap, but cooking is EXCELLENT and worth *every* euro. Courses are elaborate and helpings not huge, but it’s not the typical trendy slow-food bullshit. A fish-centric dinner is recommended. Brasserie 4:20 remains probably my favourite pub ever.
Brasserie 4:20 is a brilliant place. If you are lucky to visit when Alex is around you will experience an amazing host! The venue is a decent walk from the city centre but Im sure buses stop close by. Inside is a harmonious cellar atmosphere with exposed brick and warm glow of dimmed lights. As you walk in you are welcomed by a vintage gueuze cabinet! Fantastic range of beer on tap, with a few Mikkeller brews for example. There are many bottles available and also a vintage bottle menu but expect to pay hefty for the privelidge. Also food is top notch. A must visit in Rome or anywhere in the world for that matter.
Lussuoso e dalla carta delle birre sontuosa, ma scarsissimo a livello di servizio, dove sono stato letteralmente abbandonato al piano di sopra. Alcune birre non in perfette condizioni, ma non credo sia addebitabile a loro. Mi aspettavo di più

Excellent selection (both casks and bottles). Beautiful place with a big terrace on the top for the summer (it is also possible to smoke). Food is ok, more international than italian. People serving is not always really helpful or kind.
