Wow what a host! Our guide Bryan took us to some amazing local bars and introduced us to some amazing beers. We heard some fascinating stories and got a great history lesson about the Italian beer movement. Every bar we visited treated us like regulars and it was great having a guide who bridged the language gap, While our true was very informative about the history of the local beer there was still a personal touch that made us feel like family! If you like beer, craft or not take the tour, you wiil not be disappointed.

I can’t immagine a better way to tour “all things true Italian beer” than following Bryan! He actually wrote the book on Italian craft beer and knows everyone in the biz and more! All doors open when you’re traveling with him and his gang. Super professional but just straight out a great human being that you just instinctively wanna spend time with, no wonder when he’s around everybody in the Italian beer scene treats him like family! If you wanna discover what really goes on in Rome and the rest of Italy, go with Bryan. No really you should not experience a tourist trap like Rome without a guide and Bryan is truly the best! Can’t wait to cruise again with him!!!

If you are married to a beer drinker, take them to Rome and meet Bryan! OMG, what a fun day and a great guy. You don’t have to be 25yo to enjoy this tour in Rome, we are 64 and 77! We learned so much about the craft beer history in Italy. DH was very concerned about not being able to understand the host—not a problem. Bryan speaks totally American and fluent Italian. We visited 3 bars and had ample samples and lunch. Bryan isn’t a tour guide, but knows a lot about what we are passing by and has numerous family stories. This is a totally unique experience and should be done by anyone who loves beer.

Summary: If you can agree with me that Italian food is amazing, then you can imagine how good the Italian craft beer must be, correct? :) Yes, these wonderful people also give Italian craft beer the same gift of quality and you will need to make your way over to Rome to experience it.... The Italy Beer Tours is the best way to go. It is worth the investment anytime of year! C'mon it's Italy and it's fantastic beer with amazing food. Bucket list worthy? Yes I agree. Price? It's a trip to Italy...with a new benefit -- their craft beer... tickets to the Tour? I'd say the tour price ? really...let's just assume you're getting a bargain and the prices will rise as the demand swells (well if I can explain capitalism to my Italian friends) be-aware. These craft beers aren't at local stores, you'll need to go to the beer-o-teca (brewers tavern, and enjoy the eats too). The sites are always classic Italy. So enjoy :) and tell Bryan I sent you. Full disclosure: I know Bryan, one of the founding members of the tours, friends growing up in Vicenza Italy (over near Venice up in the Veneto region). He is a wonderful human being, this is his passion not the start of his Disney empire. Bryan even published a book and articles about Italian craft beer....a true secret gem!...he is selfless in this endeavor. How I got my exposure to this gem? I visited Rome last summer with my wife, we didn't have any expectations regarding the tour, but when in Rome... does as the Roman craft brewers do...enjoy their Italian hospitality and love for craft/microbrews. This ain't your Peroni (all due respect), this is a new craving I have...how do I know? I want to be able to buy these beers in Boston...and I'm sure some regulations won't be letting that happen anytime soon. My beer expertise? The envy of some? My first two years of college where in Munich Germany--can you say Oktoberfest? Salvator Fest? We won't go into Vino at this segment. So let me also tell you that I have had my share of beer, not the expert like Bryan or my other good friends that find the deep hidden meaning of life in those stouts or IPA's... I am just a simple light beer drinker at best, and sometimes... like last summer... I was happy to take a few more pints on our journey in Rome. I love a good Pumpkin ale in the Foliage season, a Wachusett Blueberry filled with blueberries, and I am curious about the new Mic Ultra premium...when I get to it. Read Bryans book if you want a professional connoisseur...I'm just happy to share this story and expose a gem that people should enjoy. What I had while in Italy of the craft brews? I didn't record the flavors or the names of the brew houses (I apologize), Bryan hooked us up (good to have friends with connections) but Bryan could chime in, as the five good friends of us had a variety, and they were delicious...I didn't make my trip about craft beers but it was a big surprise highlight of the 10day trip...as we travelled around Italy. Also, my taste buds are not yours..obvi...just know I'm honest about how much I loved finding these beers..and it is now a pre-req criteria of my next trip home...yes Rome is my new home. ha! I think this is worthy of a Netflix special, and or a tour with some fun famed chefs. Let me know if you want my outline...I'd be happy to show you more of Italy. Ciao for now, respectfully.

My boyfriend, Matt, and I were in Rome for a couple days ending our European vacation. After taking a couple wine tours throughout Portugal and Italy, we were in need of some BEER! And coming from Atlanta, where the craft beer scene has started taking off, we were looking for GOOD beer. Lucky for us, we had Bryan with Italy Beer Tours to show us around. We visited 3 bars on foot, which allowed us to see some of the city, too. Being a Rome native, Bryan was super knowledgeable about the city and it’s craft beer history. The beer was delicious and the tour was fun, but the best part was hanging out with Bryan! Matt and I didn’t feel like we were on a typical touristy excursion, which was great; rather we felt like we were bar hopping with our new Italian friend. We honestly could not have had a better time. We’ll definitely be recommending the tour to others visiting Rome. And Bryan, we’d love to grab another beer sometime!
