Visited May, 2012.

So I heard about a brewery that had opened in New York that was a collaboration of three big name breweries. I had to check it out. The restaurant and brewery are on the roof top which is pretty cool. The roof is mostly enclosed with glass that can be opened but still allows you to look out over the city if itís raining (like it was while I was there). The food was good albeit extremely expensive. A taster (large taster) of each of the three house beers plus some various cheeses and meats was well over $50. The beer was all as Iíve come to expect from Italian beer, namely weird and not really to any one particular style. These beers all had strange ingredients in them like various nuts and spices. Unfortunately the IPA was out at the time. If you have the money to spend this place can be fun but youíre going for the atmosphere and experience and not for the beer. Also, it takes about an hour to get a table and you cant go up the elevator until they call you. That said, there is a deli/grocery store downstairs and several places to have a glass of wine downstairs. If youíre into the wine and cheese thing killing time downstairs may be just as much fun as upstairs.

Finally made it up here. Awesome space and itís touristy but not cheesy. Cool Italian brews and inspired brews. Food is delicious although I prefer some of downstairs locales. Waitress was kinda odd duck but oh well. Pretty cool place u should check out if visiting for experience.

I really donít understand some of the reviews. You canít compare apples to oranges...and I wouldnít compare La Birreria to say my favorite beer bar...the Blind Tiger. Yes this place is expensive...itís a brewery sitting on the roof over the top Italian tourist market in NYC...on Madison Square Park...with a glass roof that opens for goodness sakes! That canít be cheap to do. Yes it gets crowded (see above where I mention the glass roof and brewery in the same room). As for something from DFH or Italy...címon...this is an amazing colaboration between Sam C. and the owners of two of Italyís best craftbrewers...Baladin and Birra del Borgo. We have Sam to thank for this...he is the one who partnered with them and helped make this all possible. He then purposely took a back seat stylewise to showcase the new Italian craftbeer styles. Yes these beers are different...but itís great to have the chance to try them...and to get them exposed to a decerning NYC craftbeer crowd. I highly recommend this place. If you are a craftbeer fan...come early on a Sat or Sun afternoon to avoid the crowds (or a weekday if you are playing tourist). The food is amazing.(make sure you try the beer and apricot pork shoulder).

Crazy expensive, with very underwhelming beers from DFH or somewhere in Italy. Expect long waits. Basically the kind of place that you go to once and then never again.

Stopped in here for lunch while visiting NYC. Really cool spot but I wish there was a view. Food was awesome but kind of pricey. Nice beer selection with lots of bottles. The bottles were very expensive. I had a bottle that was really over carbonated so we were comped a free beer. If given the opportunity, Iíll be back to this spot.

Visited on Sat. evening, we were lucky to get a table. As a beer geek that visited Italy several times, I was sure to see great Italian draft selection but was disappointed. Expensive place, some pints cost $10, bottles even more. Food is also expensive but very tasty. You can have a flight of the local brewed cask beers. I also found it very odd they have Moretti on draft - thatís not really craft.

This is a fun spot, gorgeous roof location at the Flatiron building. Downstairs in the incomparable Eataly shop, just makes me wish I had won the lottery to buy a taste of everything. Gorgeous brewing set up on the roof and nicely set up table and bar. Food is expensive, but looked good, and the beers are a few bucks more than youíd expect but very well presented and curated. Iíd say it is a must-visit if youíre chasing good beer in New York City.

Very nice, airy spacy on rooftop of building. Service was spotty and seemed to prefer "better off" clientele than beer geeks like me. Beer was excellent yet with limited choices. Food on higher end, not best I had. Rather pricy. Overall mixed bag....

Awesome rooftop location near the Flatiron building. The house beers are nothing to write home about, but are worth trying nonetheless, that is if you donít mind dropping a Hamilton on a pint of beer. The other beers on draft are well picked, with some good Italian selections. If this place was like 25% cheaper it would be awesome. But at the price point, itís not the type of place Iíd keep coming back to.
