Rome, the Vatican, St. Peter’s Cathedral, the Colosseum, Spanish steps, Trevi Fountain, there’s history wherever you set foot on. That’s why the eternal city sees millions of people visiting from all parts of the world every year. But have you heard about Rome, the craft beer capital? No? Then it will come as a surprise to you to hear that Rome is experiencing a craft beer revolution. And our tailor made craft beer tour Rome allows you to become a part of the revolution.
After many years of living in the shadows of the famous Italian red wine, small brewers of artisan beers have triggered a major comeback of the Italian beer.
With popularity booming, many small craft beer bars and pubs are waiting to be discovered in the historical centre and trendiest neighbourhoods.
Where to go in Rome to find these often-hidden gems? Leave it to us! We arrange a very wet and classy itinerary around the best watering holes of the capital for you with your private guide for when you need one. Iconic!
Start your craft beer tour on your own in Rome’s rough and ready Trastevere. Tucked away in a small alley you’ll, hopefully, find the Ma Che Siete Venuti A Fà which roughly translates as “What are you still doing here”. As it’s a Lazio Rome football chant that’s why this bar is also called the “Football pub. But above all the quality of their beers is exceptional and punters often spill out on the streets as not only the brews are micro. Similar to our next recommendation, the tiny taproom of the Illupolati where the cans are freshly filled on site! Grab a few and stroll around Trastevere. Discover more of these small hidden and off the beaten track bars.
If you still got energy, head to Pigneto by cab, Rome’s arty area and you will find loads of bars. Visit the cozy Nikashi Beer House where the art of drinking together with excellent dining is still held in high regards!
The next day it’s time for a short walking tour with your guide. See the highlights you want to see on an arranged tour. Start, stop, whenever you want, it is your holiday and you are in charge.
Right next to the Vatican and surprisingly not spotted by the tourist masses, is the Knick Knack Yoda (Dal Papa). While this small café is a perfect stop for your lunch break as it’s also serving excellent food at very low prices it does get busy later on. In the evening, the place fills quickly with Romans enjoying their crafts. On top of that they also host regular DJ sets.
In addition to all of this we offer you a chance to visit the microbrewery L’Osteria de Birra del Borgo. Located nearby the pizza is on us. Also, experience a first-hand tasting of the wonderful crafts. It won’t get any fresher!
After that, it’s time to head back. If you like the atmosphere cool, post-industrial and stylish, we recommend you the Queen Makeda Grandpub. Located near the Circus Maximus, this restaurant/bar has made itself quickly a name in the craft scene for a great selection of 40 rotating crafts on tap. While there enjoy your craft beer along with some brilliant food in their beautiful Bamboo Garden. Finish your day with a great tasting session. Our guide gives you plenty of tips on where to head afterwards should you still be thirsty.
Start your day exploring a bit more of Rome on your own. Catch a match at the Stadio Olimpico or wander narrow cobbled streets of Rome’s Monti district. Our guide will have give you loads of insider tips on where to go and what to see according your interest. Discover the most hidden gem and make your mates at home jealous. Picture yourself sipping beautiful crafted beers against the backdrop of 2000 years history in warm sunshine. Salute!
Then it is time for your next tasting session at the Open Baladin bar which is essentially the centre of the Italian craft beer movement. With more than 100 different labels its wall of beer is every craft lover’s dream. They also serve locally produced food. Above all and one reason for their popularity are their freshly produced “Piemontese burgers”. We book you in at an agreed time. Smooth.
