Un pelo troppo sopravvalutato, posto bellissimo e con una selezione ottima ma a volte questo non basta , il servizio è stato piuttosto freddo nonostante non era affollato e poi soprattutto per determinati stili anche la spillatura è stata frettolosa e non appropriata
Came a bit early, although the doors were opened they haven’t start working yet so I had to come back later. Can’t say they were too kind, either. So I came back later, early evening, just couple of other people in there, the place was quite empty, felt a bit cold. Industrial interior, I liked it. There is a terrace upstairs, looked pretty basic to me.
Was a bit confused by selection. During my visit 22 taps were on, mostly Italian micros, 1 Boon and 4 German beers I had no interest in (3 Maxlrainer). At least expected more Relevation Cats, only two were on. The Ratebeer says 73 taps, I’ve counted around 50 (I may have missed some of them). Not sure what’s the deal with taps not being used. I’ve asked about bottles and was pointed to 2 fridges containing vintages, around 30 of them. They were rather interesting, Mikkeller, Jolly Pumpkin, Hel & Verdoemenis, Old Viscosity, Struise, Lost Abbey nothing too rare, just old. Oh, and some lambics. Vintage lambics were mostly 3 Fontainen priced from 15 euro for 2009 Kriek (0,375) to 110 euro Oude Geuze (0,75) from 2002. Haven’t seen prices for other beers (didn’t want to bother the guy at the bar and ask for the price of each one), just lambics. Don’t get the 420 bottles listed here, is it some kind of joke (considering the name)? I’ve looked around, was convinced I was missing something, but looks that’s it.
If you’re not willing to pay premium price for the vintages (and that selection is pretty limited) this is an average bar, don’t see how is this one of the top bars in Rome let alone the world.

Located in a curious strip of what feels like American-oriented concept restaurants. Stylized, cold and uninviting industrial interior; a lot of shiny surfaces and neon. Burgers going out looked high quality. Deep lambic list. Taps were geared toward general American craft and some broadly available Italian and other European options. I chose a Pannepot from the self-service cooler, and left when it was finished. To me this is a quality beer bar that suffers for its lack of a sense of place.
