If you are in Rome (for beers or not...), you can’t miss this place. Draft or bottles, sit at the bar and have your experience.
Impressive place, neverr seen such a big numbers of beer! I love the biergarten shelter and its joyful atmosphere. I had the pleasure to know Alex the owner and he’s very friendly and funny.

The Brasserie 4:20 is one of the best addresses in Europe to have a real beer experience. It’s an innovative Brasserie that rewrites the rules of taste with a clear educational and divulgative attempt. You can go @4:20 and drink just a beer, like in a pub, with a list of excellent appetizers. Or you can have a great dinner “containing” beer like in a restaurant. The food is excellent, well selected and strictly “HQ”! Cutting board with pata negra or suino nero dei nebrodi ham, fine cold meats and valued cheese. Great sea-food, pasta and fishes cooked following innovative and original recipes. They cook with beer, they serve courses together with the right combined beer. Desserts are excellent too: I use to order the Imperial TiramiStout (tiramisù & stout beer) and it’s simply delightful, maybe the best you can have in Rome! The owner takes care of drink&food quality and try to diffuse the passion of gourmet. No coca-cola, no industrial beer, no crummy food. Here you can find the best craftbeer from all over the world (Mikkeller, De Molen, drie Fonteinen), a giant selection of bottles, some excellent vintage beers, or (if you prefer) you can have a glass of rare and precious whisky (there’s the hugest and most impressive list of whisky that I’ve ever seen in my life!). For abstemious, there’s only water. The “tasting menu” is really interesting: 40 euro for a great dinner and you can taste 4 different beers. The 4:20 organize also many events, expecially for homebrewers. Fortunately, last time I get in the Brasserie the service was great again, like one years ago. Regarding the local: Brasserie 4:20 has an elegant saloon, perfectly designed and furnished, and a frisky terrace planned like a biergarten. You can reach the Brasserie by tram line 8 (get off @Piazza Nievo stop) and then it’s about 200 metres walk. Don’t miss it!
Sarebbe la Brasserie perfetta se non fosse penalizzato da un servizio un pò sommario. La qualità delle birre è sicuramente alta ma forse berle a temperature lievemente più consone e con una schiuma più adeguata sarebbe ottimale. Ottimo l’ambiente ed il cibo, ma si può sicuramente migliorare nel complesso. Non basta curare la selezione delle birre per avere successo.....
tutto quasi perfetto, prezzi al limite ma qualità di ottimo livello, per cui paghi ma ottieni! birre di ogni genere e specie eccetto birre banali... selezione di super alcolici strepitosa. se proprio devo rompere vorrei un po’ più di luce...
Cosa dire? Il 4:20 è un posto che merita di essere visitato. Il locale non passa certo inosservato, così come il menù che propone una scelta allettante di piatti preparati con birra, luppolo, malto, ecc. Non ci ho mangiato e perciò non mi esprimo sulla qualità, ma alcuni abbinamenti mi hanno davvero incuriosito. Comunque il punto di forza del locale sono le birre. La selezione è vastissima e curatissima e la birra tutta di altissima qualità. Molto molto interessante la carta delle birre invecchiate in cui primeggiano delle chicche per gli amanti delle fermentazioni spontanee. Tutto questo non è proprio alla portata di tutti i portafogli: ahimè, la qualità si paga... e vabbe’
It doesn’t look like much from the outside, but upon entering Brasserie 4:20 you are transported into one of the hippest, most modern-looking beer bars you will find anywhere on this planet Earth, and I am being totally serious. The beer selection is good, and there are some interesting things on on any given day. The food here is exceptional. They specialize in seafood, and I wouldn’t say that I would tell anyone I like fish, but I sampled most of the menu here and loved every bite of food I tasted. Really top shelf. While this place is "everyman" accessible, as a woman, I would highly recommend this as a great place to bring a date.
