less than 20 beers, great staff know their product, although this store is more for wine and spirits, walked quite a distance to find a small selection of Italian micro-brews. went home with a great beer from Trieste called Cittavecchia which was a great recommendation from the store owner.

A very small store that is more a wine-store than a beer store. I’d say the selection is around 100 to 150 bottles. Nice display and friendly staff. I think I saw a few things there that I didn’t see in Rome but I’m not sure. A decent selection of Italian breweries and a limited selection of classic imports. An ok place for the tourist only visiting Florence. But most tourists will also visit Rome. I can hardly imagine a tourist going to Florence and not Rome, a short train ride away. And this bottle shop pales in comparison to the good bottle shops in Rome, especially Domus Birrae. Still this is probably the best beer store for Florence locals so I’ll give it a nice review. But for the beer tourist (who is obviously also going to Rome) this place is not worth the detour.

More like 30 beers. Nice store, packed with wine and lots of liquor. The Italian selection is very small, and very expensive, but undeniably they do have craft beer you will have trouble finding elsewhere in the area. Considering Rome was in the future for my trip, I could have missed this store. Service ignored me until my number was called, but they were friendly at that time. It is a good enough store, but they have very little beer. If Florence is your only destination, go here. But if you have limited time and Rome or Milan are part of your itinerary, I suggest waiting.

Finding Italian microbrews in Tuscany is quite the chore. Most Italian micros have very limited distribution, and so their bottles are scattered all across the countryside in hidden shops, seemingly avoiding the bigger cities where most people go by. Firenze is a good example of this practice. Although there are thousands of people in the center of the city walking by every day looking for a good bottle of something, few stores seem to branch out and offer something a little different. Even fewer carry a decent beer or two. If you’ve been to over 50 bottle shops in a couple of days like I did, walking into Enoteca Bonatti will be appear to be a dream. Not only are there Italian micros here, but there are a LOT of them! Pevak, 32 Via dei Birrai, Panil (including rarities), Ducato, Scarampola, Borgo, Baladin and White Dog, plus lots of Belgians too (Rochefort 10? Okay!). New arrivals are labelled as such with a sticker stating Nuovo arrivi. Great idea to make sure the low gravity beers you are buying are fresh. They will also pack your bottles for you for no extra charge. You can easily infer that if they go to such lengths to get such a fine beer selection, the wine selection (which is about 100 times bigger) must be something else too. It’s a little out of the tourist trail, but if you plan on going up to Piazzale Michelangelo, this is pretty much across the Arno river from it. Makes for a nice detour to walk back into the center...
