Despite its impressive list of obscure artisan brews, this cozy craft beer bar on a picturesque Trastevere street remains refreshingly free of drink snobbery.

“Hole in the wall” would be a generous description for this galley-like craft beer bar in Rome’s popular Trastevere neighborhood. The complicated name (shortened to “makke” for regulars) essentially translates to: “but what did you come here to do?!” Obviously, you came to drink the most discerning selection of craft beer in the city. The tiny pub is narrow and popular, so you’re likely to see bearded beer aficionados spilling out of the door with pint glasses in hand. But what Ma Che Siete Venuti a Fà lacks in space, it makes up for with major beer credentials and a laid-back vibe that makes you want to lean up against the wall outside with another round. The selection changes regularly, and features craft breweries that are predominately Italian, with other international microbrews occasionally sneaking into the rotation.

Time Out tip: The barstools are few and far between, so pints are best enjoyed on the cobblestone lane outside the pub’s front door.
