Beer

Birreria Blues [brewpub], via XXV Aprile 10, Cividate al Piano, Bergamo, 0363 97310, www.bluespub.com, open 20:30, closed Mon & Tue, 4 beers,
Small place for local people in a nice old building, in a small village; passionate and talkative brewmaster; excellent malt job; my suggestion is that he should work more on the hop profile:

Maivisto [brewpub], via Maivista 3, 24010 Sedrina, Bergamo, 035 636223, open 9:00, closed Mon, 4 beers.
Another place known only by local people, with some live shows; German brewmaster; he also brews for the Palabrauhaus (Palazzolo sull'Oglio, Brescia) and a pub in Perugia; personally I think he's rather poor... The beers are quite sweet, as commonly happens in Bergamo:

Osteria del Santo Bevitore [brewpub], via Manzoni 1, 24030 Medolago, Bergamo, 035 4948831, open 12:00-14:00 19:00-22:00. 
Will close and maybe move in September 2004, I heard that they brew using malt extracts :-(

Osteria del Bastard˙ / Last Out [brewpub], via Cologno 22, 24053 Brignano Gera d'Adda, Bergamo, 0363 814053, www.lastout.com, open 19:00-01:00, closed Mon, 2 beers
Quite big place with dnace music, very young audience; the Czech brewmasters (father and son) use malt extracts for their beers, and they are effectively poor...; they also serve a simple selection of German beers and Guinness:

Iron Twins [brewpub], closed!
