We visited here one evening after dinner at the recommendation of our Airbnb hostess. The gentleman running the bar took the time to talk us through the four beers available at the time and let us try them all before buying drinks. It's a small,...More

A tiny and very basic bar dominated by a micro brewery on a small side street near the outskirts of the city centre. 10 cramped seats inside and a dozen outside in the narrow street. Could do with a bit of smartening up - there's...More

Nice concept and production of various beers. The guy serving is super friendly and there is also a little food available. The beers are OK, nothing that will knock your socks off but really and literally refreshing in Bologna!

Absolutely the best beer taste in Town! There are other breweries in Bologna, but this one is a small jewel in the center of the City.

Plenty of different brews but maybe not many local brews. If you fancy a board game with friends a pleasant drop in place for an evening

Really worth seeking it out if you want a decent beer. Friendly staff who turned out to be the brewer (or master brewers mate). 4 hop IPA/APA style beer excellent and a good Rye IPA enjoyed on this trip. The seating are outside is modest...More
