I'll keep this thread going for Italy travel. Any recommendations for beer spots/stores, restaurants etc for the some of the major cities? Venice, Florence, Rome, etc...I'll be there in late August.

Thanks.

Bir and Fud was our favorite brewpub in Italy. The food was great and beers were drinkable. It is also across the alley from Ma Che Siete, a decent beer bar.

Johnny's Offlicense was my favorite bottle shop. The owner was kind enough to share a can of Banger with me...totally unexpected.

I did not care for the beer at Baladin in Rome.

In Florence we heard a lot about Mostodolce, but honestly I thought their beer was terrible. The ambience was fun, though a bit young for this 41 year old. I preferred Brewdog and Beer House Club.

In Cinque Terra I think the beer bar I went to was called Bergus and it was in Vernazza. I was mediocre.

Ma Che Siete Ventui a Fa was my favorite beer pub in Italy. They have the best beer on tap and always take extra care pouring beer. DCLA and I had a good time there - what was the owner's name? Guy was crazy generous and super friendly!

Also, as a follow-up, it was hot as balls when I was there, and the Rose de Gambrinus on tap really hit the spot. Place was legit.

Rome, Siena, Venice, Florence, Cinque Terre.
Hit Bir and Fud and Ma Che Siete. Dinner at Antica Pesa is excellent and a short walk from the two beer bars. Trastevere is pretty mellow and a good place to hang out at night.


Casa Coppelle is great for cocktails. They make an absurdly Negroni with their own bitters. In action:

I can't wait to go back. I met some cool people and kept in touch. Would like to spend a little more time hanging out without an agenda to follow.

If you are near the Pantheon at some point (and you absolutely should be), there is a killer restaurant just a few yards away called Armando. The address is Salita dei Crecenzi, 31. Very tough to get in, but it was our best meal in Rome.

Yess.. food was hit or miss last time I was in Rome, so this is a good one. Thanks!

Check out sora margherita in the Jewish quarter. Guy had to have his daughter come out and translate the menu for us that was written on construction paper

Wife and I are headed to Pisa and Florence soon. Any recommendations (other than Brewdog and Beer House Club)? I haven't found much for Pisa...and too bad we won't be hitting Rome.
