“Superb selection of beers”
Review of Birra Frara

Birra Frara
Ranked #100 of 627 Restaurants in Ferrara
Certificate of Excellence
Price range: US$12 - US$29
Description: "Birra Frara" is a restaurant-brewery in the centre of Ferrara. Our specialty are our own craft beers FRARA (that means "Ferrara" in our dialect), served on tap along with other craft beers from Europe, both on tap and in bottle. The restaurant is warm and cozy, made of bricks, wood and iron like the typical architecture of the Renaissance in Ferrara. We've got place for smokers and satellite tv. We've got a cold cellar for the beers, both in keg and in bottle, for the correct conservation in every season. This way we can keep a nice selection of strong aged beers, along with sour spontaneous fermentation beers from Belgium. Our food makes the perfect match for the beers: we use only the finest raw materials and everything is prepared by our cooks, often using our beers in the recipes. For a smooth, nice ending, let us guide you in the choice of a single cask whisky or rum... We hope to see you soon and offer you a nice place to chill out, during a pleasant walk in the streets of our beautiful ancient city

When we were here for a beer before dinner, it was packed! Apparently it is the place to have an apertivo...normal prices for a very good selection of tasty beers. They have locally brewed beers and well a many others in bottle. The seating inside is not that big, but there's also a little outdoor patio - that has heatlamps to stay warm. Overall, nice place to have a few brews!

Hello and thank you for your review!

Glad you enjoyed our pub and our beers! I'd like to point out, however, that on internet reviews systems like TA or Google, 4 stars are a low vote and so, if you'd like to support us and recommend us to other people, the only way is to give 5 stars.
I can understand that this seems unfair and maybe one can think that 5 stars are only right for super-luxury restaurants but, to put it simply, a 4 stars vote penalizes us! Ironically, it's better to not vote at all!

Sure of your comprehension, I wish you well and hope to see you again soon!

Great little bar, young friendly staff who spoke English but put up with my Italian. Go for their own beer. The Strong American style IPA is really excellent as good as Dogfish Head 90 Minute and coming from me that is high praise.
No one seemed to mind a couple of above average age ( let's face it, elderly) people in the establishment.

My wife and I were for few days in Ferrara and during one of our walks in the medieval part of the city we found this bar where they have beer from their own microbrewery, we came to try their IPA and we were happily surprised by the quality of the beer. The bar itself is new and very nice, with a very helpful staff. If you are into microbrewery beer as I am and are in Ferrara this is the place to go.
