Very close to the Drink Shop Puegnago you’ll find this new beerbar, Three Old Rogues.
Instead of opening at 5 the bar opened at 6 (later we were told this is normal in summer time, so the staff has time to sit at Lake Garda...)
Very clean and new bar with a lot of space on two floors.
Though the bartender was having a small hangover he was full of joy and jokes and we kept talking for a couple of hours.
The beers are mostly known beers from Belgium, but there are also beers from all other places in the world. There are no beers from the big Micro’s, but there are lots of others. Even had some Cantillon (Vigneronne and Lamvinus both 75cl for 20 euro).
Prices are a bit expensive (Mccullens Belhaven Stout 7 euro for 33cl, Joker IPA 50cl for 7,50 and Old Scratch Flying dog 33cl for 5,50 euro). But as he told me some stuff is difficult to get in Italy he is doing his best and I can see this pub growing for the coming years.
The food is good and normal priced.
The bartender really hates Becks and Heineken, so he was happy that I was not ordering one (once to fool him, you should have seen his face...)
This guy had an immense sense of talking and was very pollite and interested in the chats we had. Such a happy face makes it worth a visit!
