Con il tempo ho imparato ad apprezzare il locale, prima ci andavo molto di rado, ora per altri motivi ci passo spesso e l’ho rivalutato tantissimo. Selezione sempre di qualità, per lo meno non trovi sempre e solo birre ultraluppolate come negli altri posti romani. E’ ottimo per scoprire chicche brassicole europee e per un amante delle birre tedesche come me trovare almeno 2 vie dedicate a birre della Germania (oltre alla Tipopils e alla Bibock di chiara ispirazione tedesca) è un plus che pone il locale sopra tutti gli altri locali di Roma. Pub che va aprpezzato rigorosamente seduti al bancone, altrimenti perde tutto il suo fascino
Ottimo!! Grande la scelta delle birre di ottimo spessore.complimenti!!

Visited here on the weekend. Immediately gobsmacked to see Grassroots and Crooked Moon brews on tap and the much anticipated Itallian lager I’ve been searching for like a hungry dog for about a year and a half.
First impressiions are stunning. Football memorabilia on the walls with Lazio and Arsenal both represented which melts my appetite as a long time supporter of both teams, twitch my ears and the most glorious metal bands are playng on the stereo, this place is a perfect local!
I staarted ordering beer and the conditioning was first rate. Lively and oh so sessionable. The depth of the range was spot on with Italian beers and great cuts from throoughout Europe, including really limited runs..
The ambience was there and then Manuele turns up and we enjoy football; beer, good vibes and the best real pub expereince I have experienced in Italy.
This is not a new wave bar or a prentious start up, this is the real deal and ticks my boxes like no other beer place does. If you want the Kulminator with football and metal then get down.
Special praise to Manuele for searching for the Cigar City in the bassment. Pannepot in the fridge and football at the same time was bliss.
Thie value is perfect too with bottled beers at virtual off license prices. I was very keen on the backlisted beer pages. Read for yourself when you get the menu.
- Update 26th November 2011. Upon reading recent posts I’m very shocked. 5 Euros is the norm for beer prices in Rome so that’s not expensive. If you’re too lazy to stare at the chalkboard instead of the bar for what is on then that’s your fault. You ask the barman. They respond! Some people are impossible to cater for. Please don’t let a dodgy currency rate and lazyness get in the way of the best places in Rome.
Senza dubbi il migliore a Roma. Come offerta, come passione. L’unica pecca è che c’è sempre troppa gente.Se avesse qualche metro quadrato in più....Comunque rimane un posto favoloso per chi ama la birra.
One of the better beer bars I have visited. The best service I have ever experienced. A quite nice selection, that in the last two years have changed from primarily imports to mostly italian. The bar is placed in the tiny front room, in the hallway leading to the windowless back room, there are beer barrels stacked against the wall. A third seating area is in the small bunker like basement.
In questo locale mi sono innamorato delle birre artigianali, grazie alla pazienza e alla immensa competenza di chi lo gestisce (GRANDE MANUELE!). Le birre sono ottime, di tutti gli stili e da diverse nazioni. Alla spina c’è un ricambio continuo che ti permette di assaggiare spesso una nuova birra. Locale perfetto nella splendida cornice di uno dei quartieri più affascinanti della ciittà etarna.

Veramente uno dei pochi posti a Roma dove bere birra di qualità.
La cordialità e l’esperienza dei gestori è il punto forte di questo locale.
Grande scelta di birre da tutto il mondo : iTALIA ; GERMANIA;BELGIO;DANIMARCA;NORVEGIA ecc. tutte servite e spillate con cura.
At some point or another we have all envisioned the perfect place for beer. Some people may envision a posh, large, modern, high-tech beer emporium with a tap list of 100 beers and a bottle list of 2,000 bottles. This is essentially ChurchKey in Washington DC. But ChurchKey has become a place for people to be seen, pay for overpriced wine at a beer bar to make a point, order a whiskey in front of a group of professional women to look sophisticated. ChurchKey is the ultimate beer bar, but with no character or charm.
Ma Che is the opposite of CK. Does it have 50 taps? No. Does it have 2,000 bottles in the cellar? No. Does it have a $5 million keg cooling unit with variable temperatures? No. Does it have a celebrity chef? No. Does it have rare beer sitting all over the shelves for you to ogle at but can’t afford? No.
Ma Che is the best beer bar in the world because it was never trying to be the best. Ma Che is a hole in the wall off a side street in Rome that you can never find. The name alone is unpronounceable making tourists unable to ask where it is. But Ma Che is the ultimate. It is open from 10 am to 1 am everyday. You can take your beers outside onto the sidewalk and chat and meet new friends. Though the tap list is small, it rotates with ferocity. The only static tap is Tipopils, a world class session beer. The rotating taps include small breweries Ma Che has personal connections with: mostly Italian, but some American, Danish, Norwegian, British as well. Many beers on tap are made exclusively for Ma Che. The bottle list shared with Bir&Fud is extensive covering retired geuze to discontinued Italian rarities. There are beers here you cannot find anywhere else in the world. The bartenders are trained very well. Every beer poured from tap is a 5/5 for appearance. Ma Che is really a small, close knit group of friends- a hidden gem that people have made their home. This place has personality and a connection. It was my beer embassy in Italy. I made so many new friends and tried many exotic beers, some that I didn’t even order! They just kept appearing. Ma Che completed a beer journey of a lifetime and I hope to return as soon as I possibly can.
