6 or so draft Lithuanian beers along with about a dozen bottles, only a few of which looked good. Most I had seen already at Bambalyne. It was an early afternoon visit so perhaps not the fairest time to evaluate their service and ambiance, but I will say it smelled like a bathroom and I wanted to leave immediately.

Sit in front, not in the big cave in the back. Service better in the afternoons when it isn’t so busy. Good selection of tap beers, a few more in the bottle. Great food. Had a couple beers in less than perfect condition, but also several that were impecable.

Yup - totally awesome! Didn’t get to spend nearly as much time here as I might have liked, but it was well worth the trip nonetheless. Very close to the bus station which is nice as well. Lots of farmhouse ales on offer wi a fridge full of stuff for takeaway as well. Not a whole lot of English, but pointing will get you what you need. Mustachioed owner was in good spirits the night we were in and was willing to pose for our touristy shots. Sort of a low din when we were in lending it a nice cozy vibe. Definitely a must see if you’re here

Atmosphere-wise, there isn’t much happening here, unless Valentas is behind the bar and is making strange faces. He is quite the character. The beer list is nearly all high quality Lithuanian Gyvas Alus (real beer, unpasteurized, unfiltered, naturally carbonated), so this place is an absolute must when in Vilnius. The only other must in town is the other Snekutis in the Uzupis district. That one has it all; amazingly homey and quirky atmosphere PLUS a similar beer list.

Compared to the other Šnekutis this one is more conveniently located and in a lively part of town. Similar quality/quantity as far as tap selection is concerned, I even found the bottle selection (beer fridge next to the bar) of this Old Town location to be a little more extensive than the Užupis location. Food is typical Lithuanian pub food, pretty similar to the Užupis location. So far so good, however this Old Town location lacks the atmosphere of the Užupis location. Of course it is Lithuanian food and Lithuanian beer and people speak Lithuanian, but other than that and this could be a city pub anywhere on the planet. We went a few times to both locations and even the crowd is totally different, Užupis has a more varied and friendly crowd while the Old Town had a younger more “hip” crowd (by Lithuanian standard). Still this Old Town location is a mandatory stop, but

Oi! Ratebeer! Stop losing my place ratings!
Quite simply the most eclectic selection of micro-brewed (and I mean that in the original meaning not the modern day bastardisation that the dumb yanks have come up with for the term that has required the invention of other terms to imply that there’s something smaller than micro-brewing) Lithuanian beers anywhere. The owner served us, mostly using the medium of pointing and nodding of heads. I wish I could have gone every day I was here, faroeviking is 100% right that this is the place to go. When I was there, there were 20+ different beers in bottles. Lovely traditional wooden fittings make this a perfect place for drinking farmhouse (kaimiskais) beers.

Enjoyable pub not terribly far from the train/bus stations but still firmly in the city centre. A few good ales on tap and a smaller bottle selection. It lacks the atmosphere of some of the nearby bars (and the Užupio Šnekutis) but quality is similar. Filling, cheap food to soak up the beer.

Établissement visité le samedi 3 mars vers 18h. Ambiance: Bar de quartier sans grande personalité. La musique était trop forte lors de mon passage. Service: On doit se rendre au bar pour se faire servir. Le tout est sympathique et on finit par se débrouiller pour se faire comprendre. Sélection: 8 fűts et une dizaine de bouteille qu’on peut choisir dans un frigo. Nourriture: Une sélection de bouchées lithuaniennes typique de bar. (178e rating d’établissement)

Wow. What a place for beer hunter. 11 authentic farmhouse beers on tap + more on bottles + gira. Eccentric mustache guy, the owner, works here. Very nice relaxing ambiance, decent food for low price. Warm garlic bread sticks were super! Owner does not speak English, but it is not a problem. Printed beer menu has all the needed information for the raters. I visit this twice in 2 days time when I was in Vilnius.

Nice bar serving a mix of locals and tourists, owned by a non-English-speaking eccentric with a big moustache, who runs the bar. They specialize in Lithuanian farmhouse ales and have a number of these draft, plus more bottled, and also some kvass. There is a decent menu of traditional Lithuanian food which I really enjoyed. Plays mostly Lithuanian music of the traditional sort. Definitely worth a visit!
