very interesting tour led by a lady which has been working in brewery industry in Belarus since 1970-s, then degustation of 4 sorts of Alivaria beer (each is 0.5 litres), so you come out of there pretty drunk and happy.

A must see in Minsk. Academy of beer - passionate guide, who worked at the brewery for years, is now welcoming people who want to learn about the first steps of the brewing process... And in the meantime we were trying different kinds of beer they have. Was really good experience.
