The pub is only 150 from the highway exit, turning left towards Casella. The address is quite peculiar: Localita' Birra n.3 (Beer Place n.3)! In this place there was an old brewery that was operating with success in the first half of the last century: the old, unused buildings have been restored and become a nice pub and a hotel. I tasted a lager by this brewpub at a fair, before their official opening, and found it promising but not yet good. Now I could find out in subsequent visits that the beers are constantly improving. Muller lager(5.6%) has a nice, long finish, and the stronger Ambra and Rossa (7%) have a good body and balance; seasonal beers are always available, including the very good Castgnasca made with locally supplied chestnuts. Very good bruschette and dishes with cheeses and cold meats can be tasted. Thanks also to Alessio for the first review of this brewpub.

Pub in nervi, well-known for the regional cuisine (cundiggiun, trofiette al pesto, ravioli... ) and the more innovative dishes (including an Orval flavoured dessert). The beer range is purposedly a bit limited at 30 bottles, but interesting(Bloemen, Orval, Chimay, Orkney's). Infos by Kuaska.
