Alaus Studija fb_icon_tiny
(S.Žukausko g. 20, Vilnius) open daily from 11.00 to 1.00
The Alaus Studija is interesting because it is not in the center and therefore not frequented by normal tourists. The place is located in an old Soviet police building renovated and adapted to accommodate the bar. The place consists of a huge room where the beer flows freely and excellent hamburgers are served.

Vilniaus Alus fb_icon_tiny

Šnekutis fb_icon_tiny
(Polocko 7a, Šv. Stepono 8, Šv. Mikalojaus 15, Vilnius) open daily from 11.00 to 23.30
. The Šnekutis brewery is located in the picturesque Užupis , at Polocko 7a (but there are also two other pubs in town) . The place is definitely charming and farm style. The excellent offer of craft beers offers a wide range of farmhouse ales. At Snekutis you can find beers produced by micro-breweries from every corner of Lithuania. Try getting drunk with Stačias beer from Panevėžys (12% alcohol content). A couple of these large beers and you can find yourself tumbling down the ladder to the toilet. The barman is a bizarre-looking gentleman with a theatrical moustache. Snekutis does not have table service and you must therefore order at the bar. Highly recommended and extremely popular, if you come to Vilnius you have to come and drink here!

Būsi Trečias fb_icon_tiny
(Totorių 18, Vilnius) open daily from 11.00 to 24.00, Fridays and Saturdays from 11.00 to 2.00
Busi Trečias is perhaps the only real microbrewery in the capital as well as a good place to eat local dishes. The lower level is a genuinely good bar, while the large upper level is reminiscent of a German beer hall complete with locals singing patriotic songs and tumbling off wooden benches. The house beer is good, although it is advised to steer clear of the flavored versions.

Bambalynė fb_icon_tiny
(Stiklių 7, Vilnius) open daily from 11.00 to 24.00
If you like beer you can't miss this place!
Bambalynė is a charming, cozy and quiet little brick cellar-style beer hall with great service. The wonderful atmosphere of the brick cellar makes it the perfect place for a small group, a quiet chat, solitary reflection or reading. Here I offer a wide range of excellent beers (almost 100 different types) from nearby microbreweries – including some unpasteurised and unfiltered beers (unfortunately hard to find in other countries). In fact, here you will find the farmhouse ales. The place is a little more luxurious than its counterparts, the bar is fashionable among the capital's beer consumers. Plus there's an onsite shop and a beer tasting room for the real ale enthusiast. Remember: a sincere smile always opens the hearts of the waitresses here, who are often annoyed by too many drunken idiots with no manners.
