“A Beer Lover's Dream in Florence”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2013

Stumbled upon this place almost by accident, as it was located near our hotel on the southern side of the Arno.

As a craft beer lover based in NY, I have no shortage of excellent options. In Florence, not so many (and by many, I mean 1 or 2). The Archea Brewery exceeded my expectations in every single respect. The beers were all high-quality, both imported and locally sourced. The owners are really nice and friendly, always up for a chat about the beers they have, the beers they like, etc. They clearly have a passion for what they do, and it shows. I wish we hadn't found it on our last night in Florence! On the night we were there (a Friday) they had a really amazing jazz band playing, which brought in the crowds!

It was by far one of the best craft beer bars I've visited in Europe, and definitely the best one in Florence. I can't wait to go back.

“Best craft beer pub in Florence”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 2, 2013 via mobile

This little gem really is a must visit for any craft beer fans who find themselves in Florence. Lovely little place with some exceptional local and imported craft beer both in bottles and on draft. 6 taps (I think) 2 of their own and the rest imported from all over the world. The guys who run the place are incredibily enthausiastic about craft beer (and music/movies it seems also judging by the general theme of the place which we loved also). We visited the place twice over our 3 night stay and we would definately return.

“Who says the Italians don't do beer!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 19, 2012

This was on our list of 'must visit' brewpubs on a recent trip to Florence.

We weren't disappointed. Some wonderful local beers, including, on our visit two house beers. Very friendly staff - enthusiastic and knowledgeable.

Definitely worth the walk over the Arno.

“Good Brews!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2012

Currently living in Dubai, it's not often I can enjoy a good craft beer. Archea offers this, and at an excellent price. It was not easy to find, and it's off the beaten tourist path, but was definitely worth the trouble. The interior is very nicely done, they had 6 different craft beers (two of their own), a very friendly staff and offered chips or peanuts to munch on while drinking your beer and watching football. We found it on our 2nd night in Florence, and went back the following night.

“Beer crafting brewery extraordinaire!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2012

My beer and Serie A bar/pub! Great Beer! Choose a bottle from most anywhere in the world or try what's on tap. Florence, Italy is the City of Art and the Art of Beer crafting should not go untasted!!!!
