Taste 400 different craft beers, 6 in-house produced draft beers and enjoy Live Sports at Eataly’s Birrificio
If you were looking for a place to watch the most important Serie A, Champions League, and Conference League football matches you’ve found it. Eataly’s Birreria becomes Birreria dello Sport. It’s the best place in Rome to watch live sports (they broadcast the matches on two big screens) while enjoying great craft beers along with some specialties from their cuisine.
From November 29th to December 5th, on the occasion of the third anniversary of this location, the Birreria is celebrating with the Festa della Birreria. A week full of taste, where every night there will be a different brewer, selections of bottled beers at shelf price and guided tours of the Eataly Brewery, to get to know their production closely.
Beer has been rocking the scene for the past few years. And with Italian and international breweries emerging more and more, there’s a whole new wave dedicated to craft beers in the bel paese. If you want to taste one of the most amazing selections of craft beers in Rome, you need to get yourself to Eataly’s Birreria. Choose from a selection of 400 craft beers and taste Eataly’s very own draft beers (yes, Eataly has its own brewery in-house, and it produces 50,000 liters of beer per year).
But you shouldn’t come just for the beer, since the setting is just as inviting. As you walk to the first floor of Eataly, you’ll stumble upon Birrificio where an industrial style takes you by storm.
A long counter paired with stools, social tables, chairs covered in Cowboy style leather and even a large dehor with a separate smoking area await you. But I haven’t even gotten to the coolest part yet: there’s a system that allows the beer to flow directly from the tanks of the Brewery into the beer taps that line the bar. The system is called tank-to-tank, bringing Eataly’s craft beer directly from the Brewery’s tank into your glass – yes, beer is the protagonist even when it comes to the décor.
Among Eataly’s production of craft beers you’ll find Golden Eataly, Aimbeck, Chestnut, Genève Indian Pale Ale, MCDXCII and Irish Stout. Not sure which one to order? Why not go for the 5 beers tasting option for just €8.50! If you feel like trying something different, Eataly’s brewers change things up for special occasions. And if you want a drink with a twist, there are even cocktails made with beer! But no worries wine lovers, you’ll find a nice selection of sparkling, rose, white and red wines too.
A good old beer deserves to be paired with some good old food. I’m talking about juicy burgers and golden fries and yummy panini. Or better yet, why not go with Eataly’s pizza al padellino? The pizza dough is made with stone ground flour, and cooked in an iron pan inside the oven. The result? Fluffy and crispy at the same time. From the classic margherita to the broccoli alici and bufala, choose from 9 different types of pizze al padellino. Not into pizza? No need to worry. Birreria’s menu is complete, and is equipped with a selection of antipasti, meat and seafood dishes, pasta and delicious desserts.
If you’re into football and live music, The Brewery hosts live shows and is packed with large screens to catch the latest Italian and international football matches. Check out the next matches that will be on display!
