Do they serve beer in the restaurants or just wine?

We will be leaving for Florence in about 6 weeks. My husband does not care for wine and would prefer to have beer with dinner. Will this be a problem?

Thanks.

And I think that Italian beer is very good; on a scale of 1-10, it's almost as good as the wine. Although that is a question of personal preference - it would be fair to say that their beer is different.

I like Italian beer, but would not have it with a meal. In my opinion, beer is not a good match for Italian food: wine is far better.

It's traditional to drink beer rather than wine with pizze - not liking beer, I keep to wine, though.

Don't know, Nick: there's nothing like a cold glass of beer to accompany a plate of spaghetti aglio e olio. We find.

Check this out: http://www.maxbeer.org/eng/totregio.htm

Scroll down to "Toscana". Not being much of a beer drinker myself, I hope this helps!
