Rome has embraced the craft beer movement for years. Beer lovers mark your calendar for December 2 when Be.Re. opens its doors at Piazza Risorgimento in Prati (ten steps away from the Vatican), the neighborhood that was until recently a wasteland for dining and drinking options. Be.Re. will serve traditional beers from Franconia (a region in Germany, in the northern part of Bavaria above the Danube) known for some of the most interesting beer styles in the world including the rauchbiers of Bamberg and the high-gravity beers of Kulmbach. A vast assortment of beers on tap and cask ales are on the roster too and a selection of whiskies and spirits.
The people behind Be.Re. are Manuel Colonna, one of Rome’s craftbeer pioneers and experts and owner of “Ma che siete venuti a fà“, a beacon for craft beer fans, and the successful restauranteurs Luigi Parise and Lorenzo D’Annibale. Manuele Colonna will select and manage the beer list and work on sight.
Great beer without food would be incomplete. Enter Stefano Callegari and his famous trapizzini pizza pockets filled with classic cucina romana delights. and charcuterie plates and other dishes will also be available.
Piazza Risorgimento 7A
Open from 11:00 to 2:00
