If you’re looking for a place to have a nice pint with friends but you’re in the middle of the weekend and all the places right in the city center are full, I suggest having a 10-15 minutes walk from Mole Antonelliana to “Oro Birra” and ask for a table (or book for dinner and big groups).
It’s the only “independent pub” in Turin, and that means that they’re retailers but not producers. They focus on Italian artisanal beers for the draft beers section and foreign beers for the bottled section of the menu.
Draft beers frequently change. The aim is to let the customers have a complete taste experience. Don’t be shy and as you sit down please ask your waiter about the “daily list” and if you want you can describe your tastes and make them choose for you. You won’t be disappointed at all.
If you like bottled beers better you have to choose from all around Europe and North America. IPA, APA, Stout, Pils, Weizen, Leipzig Gose beer (known for its natural saltiness), Lambic beers from Belgium and so on.
If you became hungry after a beer or two you will be happy to know that all food is freshly made, so maybe you’ll need to wait a minute longer but you’ll be surprised by the quality. There are vegetarian choices (chickpea/lentil burgers) and there are also gluten-free beers.
It’s really a cozy, big modern pub worth of a few minutes walking. Believe a “Serial Weisser”.
