I had heard that there was a great view of the Colosseum from BrewDog but that's not exactly true. It's up the street a little and looks out on the Parco del Colle Oppio so even if you were sitting outside on the sidewalk you couldn't really see a lot of the Colosseum, well part of it but not much as it's blocked by trees, but that's OK there is a great view of it from the hilltop as you wander up there. If you go at night when it's lit up it's even better.
Inside it's clean and neat, pleasantly designed in the currently popular modern-minimal style with lots of grey, black, and wood. There are some murals and things however that give it some color, and being Roma, there's also some very nice exposed brick.
There are quite a few taps, 20 at least, serving BrewDog beers as well as guest beers that seem to be mainly from Italian craft brewers. There are also bottles and cans available, all available to drink there or take with you.
They also serve food although I can't vouch for it, but I will say that what I saw other people eating looked good. It looks like they do a nice burger.
I wasn't expecting to really enjoy BrewDog but I did (I had the same experience in Liverpool, UK), and I think it's more than enough motivation to climb the hill and get that great view of the Colosseum.
Honestly, I wasn't expecting much from my visits to Brew Dog ... so I was pleasantly surprised of just how solid of a place this was. Located a block away from the Colosseum ... I highly recommend stopping by for both their beer and food either before or after your Colosseum visit.
Brew Dog Rome has about 15 beers on tap ... 10 of their own brews and 5 guest beers. Prices for beer are very fair for Rome and if you hit them up during happy hour, prices are an absolute steal. Tap list is well rounded and you can do full pours or order a tasting flight. Bartenders were knowledgeable and friendly ... they were spot on with their recommendations.
It's a fairly large space for Rome standards ... plus the air conditioning is welcomed on a hot summer Rome day. Good welcoming vibe and the crowd was very chill. Biggest surprise was their quality of food ... everything we ordered was delicious. The hamburgers, sandwiches, hot dogs, salads, etc ... everything was top-notch and presented / plated in a very artistic way.
Of the 5 craft beer bars I visited in Rome, Brew Dog ranks right up there with the top dogs.
Visited Feb 2016. Right in the city centre, stones throw from the Colisseum. Had 3 Italian beers on, one of which already sampled elsewhere. Beers sampled were in good condition. If you have not sampled their own range worth a look but for local not great. Prices reflect location.
