A small place ran by a grumpy old woman, but that manages to present a nice range of beers from some of Northern italy’s top breweries: Draught Baladin, Lambrate, Bi-Du. The beers were in good condition and the place has a good vibe to it,, the beer boards on the walls all are quite attractive.
Came here for aperitivo, but they had their work cut out for them because I was expecting something as good as the Lambrate aperitivo. Quite possibly, an impossible task. Anyhow, Hop had 6 Lambrate taps, 2 from Bi-Du, and 2 from Troll, so I was sure to find something potentially very good. I went for the 2 Bi-Du. One was indeed very good, but the other was served flat...not sure that was the brewery’s intention. The crostinis and cold cuts they served with the beer were very basic, but how can you complain when you are given free food with your beer! This aperitivo concept is simply wonderful, imho. The dark wooden furniture was very nice, as was the immense mirror which nearly takes up an entire wall. I’d certainly come back here if I had a few days in Milan, but if you are in a hurry, I’d go straight to Lambrate and stay there for an entire session.
Nice bar with good vibe, full of young people. Serves only Italian beers, most taps are from Lambrate (local brewpub) and the rest are rotating with other Italian micro breweries. During happy hour, you get a free pizza (was very good). It’s also 5 minutes walk from Eatly beer shop (inside Coin).Very much worth a visit.
I’ve just settled in! Wonderful beer cafe with ambiance to die for. 11 taps including one handpump. All craft. Generous servings of aperitivo at 7pm. Beer pricing as per the Milano market. Appear happy to serve samples and plenty of 500ml pour options. I might need to check the emotions in the cold hard light of day but this place is top shelf, at least for Italy, and perhaps only topped by the Football Pub in Rome.
Really plain empty sterile bar with super unfriendly miserable bar maid. Selection leaves a lot to be desired. The only good thing is the free toasties you get. Not worth stopping by if your’e on the beer trail.
A lot smaller than it looks from the outside, this one-roomer has ten Italian craft beers on tap usually including 6 or so Lambrate beers (including Brighella, Ligera and Beccamort - a new stout) as well as regular Bi-Du beers. The toilet isn;t the city’s nicest but it works - and, anyhow, it’s the beer you come for and this must be second in the city after BQ for range.
Good selection of local craftbeers (mainly Lambrate, Birrificcio Italiano, Hi-Bu) on tap. The free popcorn and toasties is a nice treat (and a nice twist on aperitivo. Service can be a little slow at times, but who’s in a hurry. Is one of my faves in Milano, and quite central.
