The best pubs in Milan. It’s currently a great time for hops. In the last few years beer lovers have seen the number of beer-related events greatly increase.

Read on to find out the 10 addresses in Milan where you can enjoy a delicious beer with friends.

LAMBRATE

Birrificio Lambrate

This is definitely the best known drinking spot in the city, with its rather spartan atmosphere, long wooden benches and tables. We recommend choosing one of the cask ales on tap which have Milanese names. A medium sized glass is 5.50 euros, a small is 4.50. You can also order hamburgers, paninos and bruschetta.

Pils, Kronen, Red Menabrea, Weihenstephan).
