This is a great beer place in Rome serving a wide selection of beers from many countries on tap. They have many beers on tap at any given time, a great selection of Italian craft beers in a huge range, plus many Belgian beers, some German, British, and American beers of various types. Overall, the beer quality seems excellent.
They have some great beer-friendly food, including Italian fare such as arancina (fried rice croquettes) in various flavours, plus takes on Anglo-American food such as fried potatoes with their home-made ketchup, etc. The food we had was all excellent.
The place is stylish and nice inside with a long bar facing the long bank of beer taps and some nice seating outside on the pleasant and quiet little piazza which the place is on. However,the place could get easily cramped and loud inside due to the long narrow bar area and the patio outside, though pleasant, is small and cramped so can get easily overloaded.
Service is good overall, but seems a but uneven. We had great trouble getting the bartender at the bar to pay attention to us even though there were few people in at the time but once we decided that we would prefer to sit down outside service was good.
I highly recommend this as a top beer place to visit when in Rome.

Bir & Fud is a great place to visit, but I’m not going to spend my entire evening there. The pizza is really great. The beer is definitely good, and they have some very special things in the cellar if you ask. Bir & Fud is first and foremost a restaurant, and it’s packed with people who know nothing about beer and fast moving waiters who don’t want to take much time to engage with the customers. We had an ordering mishap, and the waiter delivered two of the same exact pizza when we just ordered one. I don’t think we explained that we were sharing very well, and it was more annoying than anything. You definitely should visit here because the pizza is delicious and the beer is good. You can eat dinner here and then you can walk across the street to ma che siete venuti a fà.

I love Bir & Fud, not as much as I love Ma Che (the bar across the street), but there's still some great love there. There's always a good number of beers on tap, along with bottled beers to buy inside. The staff are friendly about letting you sample what they have, and once you sit down with your beer, they automatically bring you a bowl of the most incredible house-made potato chips in the world (for free)! I love that they seem to switch staff with Ma Che, or they just all hang out. Basically, the best nights I've spent in Rome have been in the alleyway between these two bars. Great vibes. Do not miss this area of town if you go to Rome.

A good beer store that manages to present interesting Italian food and beer in an enjoyable way. It's Trastavere, so they're busy, but still a long list of beers and a short menu of good food to soak it up with. I enjoyed the home-made chips (crisps) and tried several beers while there. If you're a beer geek looking for an Italian experience, I recommend it highly.

A must-visit if in Rome but only open in the evenings, unfortunately.
Draft list is entirely Italian but consisted of a good variety of breweries and styles. The bottles were largely Italian as well. Biggest complaint is that it would have been nice to see a few non-Italian beers on tap given the large number of taps (20?).
Service was excellent, especially considering the general slowness of restaurant service in Italy.
The food was outstanding. 3 or 4 of the dishes that our group ordered were all raved about. I had a pizza that was excellent.
