Fantastic spot, fully deserving of the 20/20 overall score. A bit disconnected from the rest of Trastevere, this joint shimmers into view from a sea of second-hand bikes, discarded flower pots, and various other debris -- it is so worth the journey. Rome is turning into a top5 beer city, and Alex has a LOT to do with it. The bar is setup like many more modern íbeer barsí in the States (perhaps like others in other areas as well...), modern and simple. A long snaky bar greets you with taps and pumps and whiskey bottles. The real coup though is the upstairs beer garden rooftop shenanigan-inducing beer-party destination. Iíve been there twice and have really no idea what I talked about in those 5 hours Iíve spent upstairs. Probably all for the best. Iíll let others list the incredible beer that can be found here -- Iíll just say that itís fun as hell to be at 4:20. Make the trip, I repeat, make the trip. And then see if you canít break the BAC calculator on the way out -- impresses the natives every time.
Came a bit early, although the doors were opened they havenít start working yet so I had to come back later. Canít 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, Iíve counted around 50 (I may have missed some of them). Not sure whatís the deal with taps not being used. Iíve 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. Havenít seen prices for other beers (didnít want to bother the guy at the bar and ask for the price of each one), just lambics. Donít get the 420 bottles listed here, is it some kind of joke (considering the name)? Iíve looked around, was convinced I was missing something, but looks thatís it.
If youíre not willing to pay premium price for the vintages (and that selection is pretty limited) this is an average bar, donít 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.
Il posto Ť fantastico con una cella meravigliosa !! Nulla da ridire sulla selezione ed il locale i generale che sono veramente top ,Qualcosina da ridire invece su il servizio piuttosto sbrigativo ed il modo di spinare molto approssimativo da parte di qualcuno dietro il banco , magari era solo la serata sbagliata !
Visited the 2nd May 2016 - Modern industrial style place in the Trastevere area. Huge beer selection with some nice breweries on tap, for a good value. Service is friendly and staff is professional. About the food itís only burger but the good point is you can organize it like you want and thatís a good point. Burger are really tasty. About atmosphere, I didnít like the style of the place really mechanical and industrial but itís a style... At the entrance you have a Gueuze friend with some treasure but I didnít check the price... Good place but maybe a little bit overrated... I donít understand that this place is on the top 10 of world class place in Ratebeer...
