First of all I have to say I’ve never met such a generous host as Alex was for us at RBESG, I just cannot thank him enough for that and for the amazing beer experience he has given us that weekend. As for his brasserie, it’s wordclass as well. Great interior, beautiful tap system, great and daily rotating beer list, very nice staff (check the redhaired girl ;-), good to great food. Rooftop patio is excellent, looks like a German Biergarten and they even have different beers on than downstairs. Crowd is mainly young Italians from the alternative scene, very relaxed atmosphere here, especially after hours ;-) Don’t know if the bottled beers we had were for sale as well, but if so this has the best bottle selection I’ve ever seen. Superb. Thanks again Alex, and I will definitely be back when in Rome!
This bar is by far one of the greatest beer spots in the world. Tons of fantastic and rare bottles and a fantastic fast changing line up of taps. The ambiance is fantastic and with the Biergarten at the roof top this bar is never too crowded. Alex is the best host Ive ever visited. He know all about the beer. Theu also have some very fantastic whiskies. The food is incredible. I will come back over and over again!
I might not be too objective after a RBESG arranged by Alex,
But Brasserie 4:20 is without any doubt one of the few real amazing beer spots in the world.
Beer selection is amazing, the sea-food is the best i got in Rome and Alex and the staff are some of the friendliest people i have meet. 4:20 serves beers, water and whisky only. No wines, soda, cocktails, they have true dedication for the beers and the food they serve, beyond anything we would see. I will happy spend more days and nights here, so 4:20 you can be sure that we will be coming back soon. Is it value for my money, for me yes. Thanks a lot, Alex ;O)

Great selection of draft beers and bottles. Very kind staff. Amazing food. Just one little criticism: the service temperature of beer is often too high to be in Rome, where the room temperature is almost tropical. Aniway one of the best place to taste good beer in Rome.
A lovely stylish bar (but olde worlde) with a fantastic selection of well kept draft beers from places like Pizza Port, Mikkeller, 3 Fonteinen and of course Revelation Cat. Very nice (mostly sea food) based selection including perfectly salted calamari, the best I’ve ever had. There is another open air bar on the roof with a few extra beers on tap and some cool (well if you are my age) rock music - Deep Purple, Bon Scott era AC/DC etc.
One minor criticism is the service can (sometimes) be a little slow but certainly no worse than anywhere else in Rome!
This is a ’must do’ if you are visting Rome - you won’t be dissapointed!
Nice one Alex!
This place should be the example for all bar pubs and restaurant entrepreneurs.
Very good staff, big range of beers very pleasant to stay and not only for one day.
good food paring
very well done, Alex
Sono stato solo al piano terra, in un affollato sabato sera. L’ambiente è bellissimo, per quel che ho visto arredato con gusto. Strapieno, nessun tavolo libero. I prezzi mi sono sembrati un po’ alti, soprattutto alcune belghe a 5,50 € per 25 cl. Ho fatto una breve fila al bancone e sono stato servito abbastanza rapidamente, ma ho notato che alcuni dei ragazzi difettano un po’ nella spillatura.
Da rivedere in una giornata più tranquilla, magari gustando qualche piatto.
