(Visited 11/2013): Domus Birrae is a bottle shop on Via Cavour in Rome. It can be accessed via the Metro just a few blocks from the Termini station.
The interior of the shop opens to the check out counter on the left side, and a room on the right side with coolers and shelves of beer. Yellow walls with breweriana on the walls. There is a barrel stationed in the center with bottles open for sampling. Another room is in the rear devoted to shelves around the perimeter full of beers broken out by region. It looked like there were a couple taps behind the counter as well but I didn’t inquire about them.
The bottle selection amounts in the hundreds, with a good representation of Italian beers from breweries like Extraomnes, Birra del Borgo, Toccalmatto, Stavio, Birrificio Montegioco and Birra Turan. Imports as well from the UK and from US breweries like Hoppin’ Frog, Crooked Stave and Lost Abbey.
We visited on both ends of our Mediterranean cruise, and service on each visit was good. The guy behind the counter gave food recommendations on beers to take home and was patient, speaking English to help us tourists out. They take credit cards as well, and I didn’t feel prices were outrageous.
Not sure about the food ratings on this place, as I saw no indication they have any kind of food.
Overall this place is a must-visit for bottles in Rome as far as my experience in the city. I would definitely stop in on future visits to the city.

Popped in twice during a recent visit to Roma (Oct ’12).
Served by the same guy twice (didn’t catch his name) who spoke perfect English and spent a good 10 minutes with me on each visit helping me select beer styles from Italian brewers that I’d asked for (stouts/porters on day 1, sour/lambics on day 2).
Great selection of Italian beers as well as a few decent US and De Molen beers, which were probably no more expensive than buying them in the UK (certainly with the De Molen - probably cheaper) although these visits were all about sourcing Italian beers.
As a reference point Domus Birrae is a 15 minute walk from the Forum/Collosuem up the hill on via Cavour (keep on the right hand side and remember to take the left hand fork when the road splits). After one visit I walked back to the centre of town to Open Baladin and this was around a 20 minute walk. Like all beer venues I visited in Rome the price of Italian craft beer is on the high side but this bottle shop is highly recommended.

Simply the most extensive range of Italian micros in the city. Stocking the best of Italy there’s plenty of choice here. Staff are brilliant and take the time to give a run down on what beers are available. A must visit.

Great beer shop. While the selection is stellar and the staff friendly, perhaps my favorite thing about this place is that it does not close down in the middle of the day like almost all the other beer shops in Rome. But yeah, they have a huge amount of Italian beers, along with a strong array of American, Scandinavian and Belgian beers. Staff was helpful. It seems to me like Italian beers are expensive no matter where you go; you will be hard-pressed to find a bottle under 2.50 euro, and all the good stuff is 3 and up. Another huge plus is this shop’s location: it is about a five-minute walk from Termini station, so easy to pop in. I highly recommend this place and will definitely return.

Great stock of Italian beers. There was even a 30% off discount shelf. Rare beers. Service was excellent - lots of help when I wanted it, but not when I didn’
t. Great place, if your staying near Terminii.

Great store for buying Italian micros and some other great imports, walking distance from Termini. Great selection. The staff was very helpful and friendly. I was surprised at the De Molen and Struise that I found too. Wish I had more time to hang around and drink beers in the store or out front.

Wow! What a beer store! I was lucky enough to be in Rome during the inauguration of this new Italian king of retail craft beer. Well located walking distance from the Termini station, the center of the world as far as Rome public transportation is concerned. Two medium size rooms with bottles nicely laid-out. This store is owned and operated by the same people who run Ma Che Siete Venuti a Fà. Manuele and friends are serious beer passionate, and it shows when you walk in the store. This store really focuses on Italian craft beer. If there is a small Italian brewery in a small village somewhere Domus Birrae will hunt them down and put their beer on the shelves. When I was there during the inauguration they already had something like 250 different Italian bottles and they were planning to add another 50 in the coming few months. A few imports too but that’s not why you go there. They also have some home brewing supplies. This place is all about promoting Italian craft beer and this is THE PLACE to buy Italian craft beer bottles.

I think this is the best beer shop in Rome, not only when it comes to Italian micros, but also when you talk about imported beer.
Large selection of American quality beers, some good europeans as well. Also a good selection of glassware. Recommenden ++

This was the best store in Rome to buy Italian beer I think. Very friendly service and large selection of some of the rarer Italian beers. Top 3 if you go after beerstores. Around the corner from Colloseum! Nice

Great bottle shop. I enjoyed the selection up front, which you can see from the window, but this place takes it to another level in the their back room -- which features a vast selection of Italian craft offerings as well as some excellent selections from Belgium. Kind and helpful staff. Not to be missed if you’re anywhere near the Termini station.
