This is truly beer heaven. That's right, heaven is no longer in the sky but right here in this magnificent basement. Come and try the unbelievable selection of Lithuanian micro-breweries. Love it.

A cellar bar with lots of original features in the old town. A must for anybody interested in trying out rare beers from small independent Lithuanian breweries. All the beers are bottled and in fridges with the friendly and knowledgeable staff more than willing to offer advice. The place has a slightly upmarket fell but the prices are very good... More

We liked *almost* everything about this place. The choice of beers is very good and the atmosphere, in a brick cellar lit by candles, is delightful and cosy. The service model is unusual. You go to the big, liquor-store-style refrigerators full of beer, choose a bottle for yourself (the labels are usually in Lithuanian only but you can at least... More

My friends and I really enjoyed it here. We went on our last day which was probably a good thing because we could easily get sloshed in there! Its a nice little cellar bar with lovely wooden furniture. The staff on duty at the time didn't speak great English but were nice and could easily explain what the process was.... More

Around 90 bottled beers from specialist Lithuanian brewers - no draught in evidence but after the second bottle of specialist wheat beer I didn't mind too much. I like the atmosphere of vaulted cellar bars and this place will not disappoint. It's self-service and you go to the fridges and take your pick ... the staff are helpful, friendly and... More

I was really excited to go to this place but I found the lady working there to be really unhelpful and almost hostile. I asked her how the place works and she just said "it's self service" and didn't offer any help choosing one even though I have obviously no idea about Lithuanian beer. I also asked about a menu...

Nice little bar in a cellar. They have a huuuuge selection of Lithuanian beers there. The air conditioning system doesn't work very well so it's super hot in there and sometimes smells of sweat... but all in all it's a very nice place. Must visit!

I fact, it became one of my favorite bars in Europe. I would never thought Lithuania has to offer such a variety of excellent beers. In case you manage to get there one day - try Bravo dark beer, it is special. Cozy atmosphere, music playing inside and its location - all together makes this place special. Prices are average...
