Better Know A Beer City, Part 4 - Roma, Italy!

In mid-October my wife and I joined her family for an eight-day jaunt through a land of great pasta, pizza, wine, and...BEER! Before this trip I had last visited Italy in 2007. While I had certainly begun my craft beer journey by that time, I wasn't quite as obsessed with seeking out great beer while on vacation. We spent time in Milan that summer and had our fair share of Peroni and Moretti (both widely available here in the United States). As I learned during this most recent visit, that was a huge mistake. Italian beer is so, so much more than those two export brands - in fact, much like the United States, Italy has seen an explosion in craft beer production since the early 2000s. This BKABC will be split into two parts covering both Tuscany (Florence & Siena) and Rome. Now for the finale: Better Know A Beer City, Part 4 - Roma, Italy!

We departed Siena early on a Thursday morning and arrived in Rome around lunchtime...
