Shamrock Irish Pub

Sip on authentic Guinness at the first Irish pub in Barga featuring live bands and local Garfagnana street food, as well as pub staples.

That's where the Shamrock Irish Pub comes in - late hours, a great selection of draft beers and live music every weekend are what set this pub apart from your typical establishment. The pub retains its inherent charm by serving some of the best regional snacks, cheeses and cold cuts to pair with your beer; try the Taglierino misto. Packed with an eclectic blend of tourists and locals, this is a great place for after-hours drinks in the city.

Birroir Birrificio

Take a tour of this microbrewery run exclusively by women, that specializes in craft brews made from local hops and pure spring water.
This craft brewery is inspired by the wine-making concept of terroir, and as such focuses attention on locally-sourced raw materials and manufacturing processes adapted to the unique climate and landscape of Capannori. Each brew is a careful blend of time-honored technique and modern technology to bring out the full flavor of its ingredients. The selection is limited, but each beer has a signature character from the delicately refreshing Islotta blonde ale to the richer, caramel-hued Gigolia. Equal thought is put into the elegant packaging, making these ideal as one-of-a-kind gifts or souvenirs.
