The largest selection of beers of any of the bars we visited in Vilnius. Noticed some decent british ales in addition to all the local stuff. Most of the imports were lame, why for instance bother to import beer from Denmark, when all you can offer is Faxe?
The atmosphere reminded me of a bomb shelter with a bar up against the back wall. The street facing beer garden was a better seating option.

We walked from old town in the mid-afternoon to this distant beer bar out on a main street along the Neris river. Inside is a strange wooden interior reminiscent of pool hall. Apparently next door they have a night club. This is a strange area of office buildings and parking strips and traffic lights, not residences, so it’s weird to see this place out here. It reminds me of Bar & Lounge at the corporate park Hilton. Inside you have about a dozen Lithuanian beers on tap, including two beer engines. After having some small samples, which proved to be in poor shape, I talked the surly and unwelcoming bartender into a couple of half-pints for something around 2 lita each. These were also in bad shape. One of them was the Jorvaru Alus from draft to compare to the bad impression (1.9) I got from a plastic bottle bought at Bambalyne. This was just as bad. It was here that were schemed to leave the country early and set in motion what would lead to three long, stellar days in Helsinki.

Was here just for a moment to grab some samples and run to buss. On taps was about 20 and bottle compilation, from which I take only one cause the rest wasn’t new to me, was decent. But not 100.
It was middle of day and drunk pink cheekers already - liked that. Spacious rooms to consume, vestibule reminded me of theater. This place’s value as I understand is local on tap brews from which I take two in pet bottles - wasn’t the best I have tried. So I have interest to go there one more time.

Very nice set of beer, cozy bartenders and waitress, but tragic food. And very loud in the evenings.

Établissement visité le dimanche 3 mars vers 17h. Ambiance: Bar étudiant dans un sous-sol situé un peu en dehors de la zone touristique. Sélection de musique éclectique, on passe de Toto à du death metal. Service: Le serveur parlait anglais. Menu en anglais disponible. Sympathique. Sélection: 16 fûts. Une vingtaine de bouteilles lituaniennes et une cinquantaine de bouteille d’ailleurs en Europe. Nourriture: On a pris quelques assiettes mixtes à partager. (180e rating d’établissement)

So far my favorite in Vilnius. Basement bar that draws a young-ish crowd, all attracted by the 10+ taps of Lithuanian micros, all very well-kept. There’s also a wide range of Euro bottles including good stuff from Belgium, Germany, the Czech Republic, and the UK. Food is rustic and cheap as chips - and portions are huge! My beer recommendations would be Ramuno Cizo Kaimiskas (traditional bread beer with honey) and anything from small regional brewery Su Puta. Menus and beer lists available in English.

Grungy underground student bar featuring a non-changing Lithuanian Gyvas Alus (real beer) menu. Lots of quality to be had here, but they tend to add gas to some otherwise naturally carbonated brews, which is too bad. In any case, this is one of the best Lithuanian beer menus out there, so it becomes a must.

The adventure starts when you try to find this place. It is hidden in a concrete block just outside the city centre. The interior however looks cosy. This beer pub has the best selection in Vilnius, not only offering Lithuanian beers from small breweries, but a nice selection of English ales and other European beers as well. Of course I tried the Lithuanian stuff. Baked beer, open fermenting, honey beer: all specialities are served and if you want to know more, they tell you about it (as good as it gets in their English). Food is served, but we didn’t try.

Rock pub with a large room and a big bar. Booze atmosphere and a nice place to meet locals, though noisy. Some impressive and elaborate wooden taps decorates the bar. A cool selection of 16 original farmhouse Lithuanian ales on tap. Beers from Belgium, UK, Russia, Czech and Germany complete the list of bottles. The prices are from heaven. I paid 1,5€ for a pint of a local beer and 5,9€ for a big bottle of La Trappe Quadruppel (June 2011). The must in Vilnius.

This student bar has very good selection of Lithuanian farmhouse beers on tap. Few are same than in Snekutis, Alus Namai has a few more taps than it. Big selection (for Lithuania) of international beers on bottles too. Food seems to be cheap and ok. Big screens showed basket ball. Bigger place and different ambiance than in Snekutis, but I liked this place too. One "must visit" places for rater in Vilnius.
