We were staying in Bologna for four days and by pure luck found ourselves staying a five minute walk from this craft ale haven... Needless to say we frequented it on a good few occasions.. Not only was their own beer of exceptional quality but they also serve a guest beer or two... really worth searching out... ten min walk... More

Stopped by for a pint and loved their brown ale. Quaint place because Italy works as a brewery with some outdoor seating too. Lovely guy pouri g and very chill atmosphere. So pleased we went!

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 and a little tight.

don't come here for a glass of wine or for your dinner. but if you look for some local beer, fresh from the tap, then this is your place. from Blanche to Black, they taste fine. and for the little hunger, you can get a tagliata (bread with a plate of cheese and mortodella etc.).

Small & quaint. Taste up to 5 different beers brewed on site. Cost in keeping with the area €4 half pint. Visited by locals everyone is friendly and wanted to chat, even in English.

In a country known for excellent wine, here is a very interesting micro - brewery. Well worth a visit.

Delicious beers - the place certainly lives up to all the good reviews. All three that were available on tap when we were there were exquisite.
