This massive rooftop beer garden, located 14 stories above the Italian megastore Eataly, offers a direct line to one of the world’s most exciting new beer regions: an unprecedented stash of beers from the Boot, as well as innovative house-made ales reflecting trends on both sides of the Atlantic. Hops-heads will geek out over the three proprietary cask-conditioned ales brewed on the premises—the collaborative effort of craft-brew pioneers Sam Calagione (founder of Delaware's Dogfish Head), Teo Musso (Piedmont's Birra Baladin) and Leonardo Di Vincenzo (Rome's Birra del Borgo). But you don't have to be a beer nerd to appreciate the views of the Flatiron and Empire State Buildings while sipping on the unpasteurized, unfiltered suds. Fight your way through the scrum, snag a seat at the Carrara marble bar or one of the communal salvaged-wood tables and line your stomach with accomplished rustic eats (fat probusto sausages, gorgeous salumi) before letting loose on the brews.

This is the kind of restaurant you go to if you want to impress somebody who's visiting NYC. The rooftop views are gorgeous and the beer selection is incredibly varied, but the food isn't good enough to be at the price point it's at. You're better off buying food from the markets downstairs to cook at home.

La birreria, not many people knows  this is a all year round rooftop, if you are a beer fanatic this is your place to go, they have a great selection of beers but no happy hours specials.

As for food, I would hit the downstairs restaurants (Eataly).

Here, your crowd is mix, you can get tourists as well as locals on a friday afternoon, not much space at the bar, but for a small group with no table reservation this is a good place to go grab a couple of beers and move on to the next place. If you want to meet people from other countries and thirsty for a nice glass of a very tasty beer, totally choose la birreria as your place to go. #TOtastemaker

I wasn't very impressed with La Birreria. It was pretty over priced for what it was and the food wasn't that great. Our tables food was coming out overcooked or really bland... at points I even thought 'I can cook better than this!' Always frustrating when your as bad a cook as me! The beer was a pleaser though with a really good selection. Cocktails were also good, not amazing but good. I don't think I'd go back.
