Birreria Art. 17 – Beer for every taste

I found this spot by chance, on a rainy Saturday afternoon, while looking for shelter. I was with friends and none of us had ever heard about this place, but it looked very cozy and since it was raining outside, we decided to give it a try. Many months later, the friend who actually suggested to get in this bar, revealed us that she did it just in order to avoid a person which was standing few metres ahead and she didn’t want to meet.

The bartender told us they’d only opened a month before (September 2016) and described the wide range of beers on tap they offer to us – they are either local, or imported ones, plus a wide choice of bottled beers.

A good idea the owners had, in my opinion, was not to pack the inside of the pub with tables, choosing to place the tables not too close to one another. Often, in Florence – especially in the centre – the opposite happens because the people running the bars try to maximize the available seats, not caring too much about leaving the customers some “breathing space”. That’s why I value this spot even more, since I can sit and have some free space around me.

Visit by visit, beer by beer, we became frequent customers. The owners (and bartenders) – three Albanian brothers that moved to Italy very long time ago – became our friends and the spot is one of our favourite meeting points.
