Historical and excellent beer shop in the center of Milan. Flavia is one of the most passionate and expert in Italy...

amazing beer selection and an amazingly rich store experience. reminds me of some of the great beer stores in belgium. selection of obscure italian beer will satisfy the beer explorer who wants to become more familiar with the emerging, exciting and experimental brewing scene in italy. wonderful store that should not be missed by any serious beer traveler. lady at the counter didnít know much english but was still very helpful, and you can manage to determine what the beer is (or come close) by checking the ABV and reading the italian ingredients list assuming you can handle some simple italian translation. i spent much more than i anticipated.
Small shop not notisable when closed. Helpfull staff but no english spoken. Web-site not up to date. Of the 20 beers I wanted only apr. 5 was avalible. But there were plenty of others to get. Really nice Italiena micro selection. Went with family so only spent 20 min getting my ration of 15-20 large beers.
If you search countries just around the corner there is a southamerican kiosk with beers from Peru, Colombia, Argentina and more.
Great shop off the Porta Venezia metro stop with a friendly and educated woman running the show. Tiny tiny shop but stocked from floor to ceiling with an extensive Belgian selection mingled with British, French and some German beers. Has quite a selection of Christmas ales. Also has a medium sized collection of glassware for purchase and bar mats. I believe she even carries some home brewing supplies. Was surprised that they didnít carry anything from Birrificio Italiano from Como, she explained they were too expensive which I found odd since her store carries very expensive beers. The place is run by Flavia and her husband who were written up in a recent New York Times article on Italian craft beers and the up and coming Italian microbreweries. A great place to browse and a must see for those living in Milan.
Small store with beer products, glasses and beers from floor to sealing.
Look under "ACQUISTI ON LINE" on there homepage to find some of there selection.
The selection mainly contains Italian, Begian, German, French and British beers, but other can be found as well.
The store is located 5-10 min walk from the Centrale FS railway station and worth the the trip if you are in town.
Are you in the area visit "Roybeer" as well.

Quite a small shop and not very central. Near enough Centrale FS, though. Very good selection of Belgian and German beers, and also good from rest of the world. Lots of beer glasses. Slightly disappointed with the selection of Italian beers but had lots of Baladin.
A real find, amazing how many beers, glasses and breweriana they have managed to cram in. Good for Italian micros, Belgians, UK, Germany. Lots of Christmas beers. Iím sure everyone will find something of interest here.
The domestic craft beers are expensive, but I doubt youíll find them much cheaper elsewhere.
The service is not too enthusiastic, and even if you buy a lot they donít slip an extra bottle into you bag.
Walking distance from the Central station.
