Small beer store in the center of Bologna, walking distance from the train station. Selection is geared toward local clientele, so it emphasizes Belgians, British, German beers, with a few American ones. The selection of Italian beers was small, but included some very good ones and a few rarities. It is not possible to drink beer there, but you can taste entire bottles (courtesy of the tax police, the Guardia di Finanza). Owner Marco is a terrific host, very knowledgeable and friendly, and very generous with offering beers. Clientele are also very friendly. One dart board for entertainment. Wireless internet access. A vital place to visit in Bologna.
A fantastic beer range from Italian to Belgium to American and a whole lot more. Friendly service with the staff who even though spoke limited English really keen to suggest some great beers. The only downside is I couldnt carry all the beers I wanted to out of the store.
A nice little beer cafe in central Bologna. The emphasis here is on bottled beers, and non-Italian beers at that. The range is impressive, with lots of US stuff (Port, Anchor, Jolly Pumpkin, Dark Horse, Southern Tier), Dutch (De Molen), and UK (BrewDog). Prices are fairly high, but good luck finding any of these beers anywhere else in Bologna. I had one of the few Italian beers I could find (Brewfist Space Man). This place is small, just six tables and a five-stool bar. The music on my visit was heavy on the Eddie Vedder, which was awesome. Seems like a nice place to spend an afternoon.
The name was intriguing, the wolf’s hideout. I went there around 11h50, place supposedly opened around 11h30. If there is well one thing I abhor is a place that does not respect its opening hours, and Italy seems to do very well at it. In any case, I sat outside eating some food before going in, the place was still unlit, benches on the tables and the buy was busy sorting out a delivery. Not that the guy was unfriendly but it’s hard to connect with your customer when you are opening boxes.
The place was uninviting, with the decor borderline tacky. The window was not clean, spider webs around the carton window decor. To me this just seemed like a place that could use a good cleaning and certainly was not part of the idea behind the Luppolo theme? The draft beers (5 in total) were low on Italians and consisting of half German pils. I had the Jake brewed by Bellazzi. Small selection of bottles to go, a ltd selection of Italians and the usual Belgian suspects. Pint price was even a bit above the usual price in Bologna for that type of products.
Fine selection of Italian micros, fieve beers from White Dog when I was in. A fine range of imports, too, including rarities like BrewDog Paradox. Lots of Belgian, German and English beers.
No Panil or Baladin when I was in, but there is enough to chose from!

Small beer shop a few blocks off from center of Bologna. Also within walking distance of the main train station and bus station. This shop focused on British, American, German, and Belgian beer. It also had a small but local flavor of Italian beers available as well. Marco the owner was very generous and helped out as much as possible. A must stop in Bologna!
Was very excited about visiting this place to try some italian micros, but to my disappointment they didn’t have a very big selection. The place itself is ok but but doesn’t have a very big bar, and it’s not very easy to tell what beers they actually have available and a lot of the beers I ask for that were on the menu or on display were nowhere to be found. Still interesting place to visit for foreign beers.
