My family and I stopped here for lunch and were pleasantly surprised by how good the food was. I had Pappardelle Cinghiale and it was very good.

I've been here quite a few times now, brought friends, alone, etc. Its always a warm and welcoming place. Even though when you think Tuscany, you think red wine, there is a growing fantastic beer culture and Birrificio Cortonese is a great outlet for that. Food is also very good. Owner and the Barista are very consistent and warm people.... More

Enjoyed this spot for good craft beer and pizza. Family run, wonderful wait staff make the experience great. Selection of bottled beers is wonderful and their own craft IPA was really tasty.

Wonderful home cooked food and a great selection of beer. A nice change. The owners went out of their way to set us up at the bar for a small wait on a busy Saturday night.

Food was great, and home brewed beer slipped down well. Nice lunch spot and looks like a nice bar for evening drink as well

Burger, pizza, small salad, great beer. Service was wonderful. Couldn't have asked for a better dinner on a cold fall night in Cortona.

My review is based on our last evening in Tuscany on 2/8/2016. We were looking for a nice restaurant in Cortona for that evening. On our half way, climbing from the parking to the piazza of Cortona we saw a small and inviting restaurant named Birrificio Cortonese and after looking at the menu outside the kids wanted us to eat...

Delicious beer made in Cortona. 5 different home made brews to chose from and loads of bottles from around the world. 4/5* as a little pricey, but worth it for one drink if you are missing the taste of craft ale while you travel.

We went here initially because it was close to our hotel. Excellent choice. Fantastic personal service. Many varieties of beer. Would characterize this restaurant as almost a gourmet version of pub grub. We went to two higher rated restaurants and were not nearly as impressed. Regrettably, we went to one of those rather than here for a second time. Hopefully,... More
