“Great Place”
Reviewed April 17, 2013

Glad to report that this place seems to be going from strength to strength. very friendly welcome & helpful about the beer range. WiFi is a great bonus to us single travelers so, thanks chaps, it kept me in touch with family.
Also met some really nice folks from Sussex (you know who you are.....) and some from Aspen Colorado so, a real eclectic mix.
Great beer & great company.

“Great Beer, but lacking in atmosphere”
Reviewed April 15, 2013 via mobile

It's a great place for trying some interesting brews and the bar man gave an excellent overview of the various beers & ales available. However i cant help but think that the venue was lacking in atmosphere.

“We loved this place!”
Reviewed April 3, 2013

My girlfriend and I live in Portland and thus are true microbrew lovers. Archea, and Antony, in particular, helped make our Florence vacation great fun. We went there 3 times in our 7 night stay, tried brews from Milan, Scotland, and of course Archea, too. Antony advised us on some good restaurants and little towns to visit in northern Italy. What a nice fellow and fun little place to take a break.

“Friendly and Knowledgeable Staff with Great Microbrews!”
Reviewed April 3, 2013

I went here with three friends (one of whom is a German and a beer lover). The bartender (I think he is the owner too) was very friendly and knowledgeable. They have a mix of their own brews, regional and international micro-brews, both on tap and in the bottle. The bar is small and cozy and played fantastic music. We each tried a few beers and they were all great. I had both of their own brews (one a double bock and the other a blonde) and each was fantastic. I'm from WI and I have high beer standards, and this is a surprising find in Italy, the land of wine.
Note: I'm not sure why this is listed as an "attraction" because it's a bar. They brew off-site.

“Loved It!”
Reviewed February 27, 2013

Me and my husband love craft beers and know our beer so was very keen to seek this place out. Great place, they hadn't opened the doors but we knocked and they let us in!
Great choice, and very good prices.
My only negative is that the place was very cold, and I did have my coat on while there.
Dont let this put you off, just be prepared!
