Some places open to capitalize on the beer culture, while others make the beer culture. Ma Che Siete Venuti a Fà apparently opened in 2001, although I visited Rome in 2004 and never knew they were around. Ma Che Siete Venuti a Fà has perhaps singlehandedly changed the entire beer culture in Rome. I visited on a Friday night and sat quaintly at the bar for five hours. I was amazed by the hundreds of quality draughts beers that were poured, from Belgians to the best Italian beers. I was the only tourist, nearly everyone poured was a young Roman, both females and males and they had no interest in beers of low quality. This place is setting up Italy's beer scene for the future. About 12 beers were on draught, all of high quality, with a bottle list of nothing but the best available. The staff and owner were incredibly kind, knowledgable and a pleasure to be around. I have been to some of the best bars in the world and Ma Che Siete Venuti a Fà ranks among the best on my list. This place is very special. When in Rome, you would be a fool not to visit.

Not sure what all the fuss is about really. This small two roomed bar with a short connecting corridor can hold about 30 people comfortably, 10 in the front and 20 in the back.
Friendly staff, with noisey customers and a speaker system that is too loud. They were alternating between football highlights and a music channel on our visit and the sound almost defeated us. We were sat in the back by ourselves and were joined by a couple from London, we shouted at each other for a while, then gave in.
A request to have the speakers turn off or lowered was met with it’s OK in the front bar and we can't alter individual rooms.
Beer was fine but it’s not anywhere near one of the top 100 bars I've been in around the world.

Over a decade ago this bar was opened as a football pub (hence their website). They have since evolved into one of the coolest beer bars I have ever been to. They have a small number of taps (relatively), but the choices are definitely quality over quantity. If you visit Rome and are a beer dork, this place should absolutely be on your short list. The same people own the beer/pizza place across the street (Bir & Fud). Ask what the name of this place means! Best name in existence.

If you go to Rome, you must stop in here. These guys really appreciate beer and are doing their best to show the world there are some great craft beer brewers in Italy. They have a rotating selection of Italian and other European beers. They even had a number of American craft beers in bottles. They had three real ales from the UK available. The staff is very knowledgeable and very helpful. I spent many hours here talking with the bartender. He offered me a few samples and recommendations. He told me about the craft beer industry in Italy and I tried a few of their beers that were available. I have to say, my preconception about beer in Italy was very dated and very wrong. If you are in Italy, go here and be impressed.
