We found this beer cellar by accident. Often the most fun discoveries happen this way. Down a flight of old stone steps leads you to a beautiful arched brick cellar. If like us you don't speak Lithuanian then you may just stand & stare. On the night we visited the staff didn't speak English & so we truly were sure... More

It's a must for all beer-lovers. They don't serve food, just some sausages and snacks, but they have 80 (!!!) different sorts of non-pasteurized beer brewed in Lithuania. And they are really good! You can choose whatever you want and take it right from the shelves or you can ask a girl at the cash desk and she'll become a... More

Great beer cellar! Huge selection of bottled beers. Behind the counter was working nice girl who helped us with the beer selection. You can drink it right there, but you can take away.

Hidden in a basement is a beer lovers dream. Four fridges filled with boutique Lithuania beer, and helpful staff. Ready to help you choose your perfect first beer because trust me there will definitely be a second!

Bambalyne ("Bumbaleena") is a great underground bar to try a wide range of tasty Lithuanian beers. They have four stacked, self-serve fridges for you to browse the beers and peruse the labels. Choose one, take it up to the counter to pay, grab a glass, and serve yourself - simple. You could spend weeks trying the different varieties. Ask the... More

The place is charming - a canteen filled with beers - mostly small breweries from all over Lithuania. The concept is simple : just grab your beer from the fridge, pay at the counter and enjoy it at your table. Lithuanian labels are not easily readable but you can ask advices. the choice is endless. There is also some food... More

As you may have already understood - this is must-go for beer-lovers. This is heaven. This is Mecca. This is The Promised Land. Numerous choice of beers (and it's cheap), which you can buy and drink right here, in a small pub part of the underground. It feels like you are in a basement of a castle of some beer... More

This place is hidden behind an Italian deli, but is definitely not to be missed by any beer lover. There are a large range of beers from across Lithuania, all bottled. You go to the fridges, choose your beer, show it to the ladt at the counter and then pay then or at the end. They don't have a menu... More

This is a great little spot to enjoy a break from touring old town Vilnius. It is located in the basement and maybe a bit difficult to find, but once found the beer choices are numerous and tasty. Many artisan beers are available.
