La Belle Alliance is my comfort pub and a true temple for beer lovers in Milan. When it comes to the real craft experience, LBA is and has been a landmark in the Conchetta area since 2002. Whenever somebody’s visiting, I take them there; whenever I need a consolation beer, I head there; whenever I don’t wanna miss the Italy National Basketball team play (or any soccer match for that matter, but that wouldn’t be my… cup of beer) I meet my people there.
You go to LBA to find the best domestic and international craft beers on tap. There’s twenty to twenty-five draft beers on rotation and the taps switch basically every other week; never have I complained about a single one of them! Food-wise, they serve the juiciest burgers, the obvious “beerballs” as well as a few interesting veggie options, such as the farinata, typical of the Ligurian Sea coast. Place your order at the counter, grab a seat and have a full “craft beer blast”.
The staff at LBA may not be the warmest but soon enough you’ll find out that under that armour they are the best connoisseurs in the field: tell them what you’re into and they’ll come up with the most unforgettable beer for you. Remember that tune “Sometimes you wanna go where everybody knows your name”? At LBA they will always be glad you came indeed, and you will too.
