A must for beer fans

Had read about this place before visiting Lithuania and I was disappointed. Door just off the main street and you head down the stairs to the cellar. Find a table then select your beers from the four huge fridges filled with 200+ beers take them to the helpful girl behind the counter to pay for... read more

Do you like beer? Do you prefer anything special? Are you looking for the Lithuanian beer? If your answer is "YES", you'll definetely be right! It's a beer world! If you ask somebody from personal to help you with the choice, they will warmly advice that special beer according to your preferences and wishes. BUT, there's a little space there.

Great selection of local beers. A really nice place, perfect for a gathering with some friends. Just grab a beer in one of the fridges, drink and repeat. Just remember to pay before you leave.

we visited bambalyna for a pre dinner drink and snack. The selection of Lithuanian beers is rather overwhelming. If you wonder whether the draft beer culture has overtaken Lithuania, bambalyna answers that question. In addition to each choosing a beer, we also asked for kepta duona, the essential garlic fried bread that itself contributes significantly to the beer culture. The... More

Fabulous cosy bar in a medieval barrel-vaulted cellar. Huge choice of bottled Lithuanian beer, presented in a row of fridges so that you choose what you want and take it to the bar to be opened (and choose a suitable glass). Friendly service. Be careful though to make a note of what you have, particularly if you get chatting to... More

The beer choice is impressive (mostly bottled), there is something to any taste. I would also recommend their beer snack (go for smoked pigs' snouts if you are daring enough)

The bar is in a cellar in the heart of the old town. After going down some steep stairs you reach the very atmospheric vaulted cellar. This is a craft beer drinkers paradise. There is a massive choice of bottled beer from most of the micro breweries in Lithuania. Make your choice then leave it for the bar staff to... More

This gem of a place is located just opposite the more famous steakhouse restaurant Lokys. The place itself is in a cellar basement as can be seen on the many pictures available here on Tripadvisor. They always have between 100-120 beers from around Lithuania at any point in time. The range is from the light lagers to the the very... More

We went here numerous times with friends and foreign guests to have beer. The location is very central and right in the old town, the interior is appropriate for a true beer cellar. The selection of beers is very big, a lot of local beers from all around Lithuania. Definitely worth to go there and have a pint.
