One of my favorite pub ever. An old wooden cottage forgotten in off-center Vilnius. That place has history. Not very big, probably sits 50 people max. Calling this place warm and welcoming is an understatement. I could spend hours just looking at all the old junk, old pictures and memorabilia hanging everywhere. You’re almost guaranteed to have patrons try to start a conversation with you, this is a very social bar. Excellent selection of Lithuanian beers on tap, and even a cask. Some bottles too. Food is typical Lithuanian cheap pub food, hard to describe, I was surprised at first because it is the first Lithuanian bar I visited, but after a while I got used to it and quite enjoyed it. Certainly in the top-10 places I’d like to be drinking a pint right now if I could teleport myself from home. This place is borderline surreal.

Cool place both inside and outside. Rustic. Fewer beers on tap than the old town location, but we found the condition a touch better. Grat food for cheap prices. Our servers were generally helpful without being super friendly or inciteful. A definite must.

This place really lived up to expectations - good considering my disappointment at the Old Town branch! "Quirky" is a tired word but really applies in this case - though this place has probably always looked like it does, long before RateBeerians started to find their way here!
Beer selection includes some of the best Lithuanian traditional "micros", like Morkunas and Dundulis Dounkelis, plus more bottles in the fridge. Food is dirt cheap, down-home and delivered promptly. Communal tables/benches make for interesting conversations. A great little beer spot and a must for the beer traveler in Vilnius.

Like Phil says, this place has quite the quirky wooden cottage feel, with all the old farm equipment adorning the walls, birch trees to support the roof and a simply strange decoration outside. There are very few tables, so it’s quite easy to start talking to strangers here. The beer list is as engaging as Alaus Namai or the other Snekutis (which lacks the atmosphere this one has). Food is typical Lithuanian, quite good for what it is. Prices are cheap, service is efficient, beers are mostly rare and excellent quality. This is probably my favorite place in all of Lithuania, moreso than the 20 countryside breweries I’ve visited. A gem in the craft beer world, not only in Lithuania.

Again - another gem! Reasonable selection of the best Lithuanian beers from the small and farmhouse breweries. obviously overlaps with the old town bar, but not always identical. Quirky olde-style wooden cottage feel, you really feel at home there. Typical Lithuanian prices - you won’t notice any dent made on your wallet. It’s quite a trek from the bus/train station, but like so many of the bars this is so worth visiting you shouldn’t be racing through this town anyway.

A place with original Lithuanian atmosphere and many Lithuanian microbreweries. The emblematic figure of the owner gives an added value to this very interesting spot.

One of the most interesting bars/restaurants I’ve been to, in fact it probably is the most interesting. Lots of Lithuanian micro brews on tap, many of which seemed to be rather hazy. Well worth visiting. Visited in January 2009.

Out in the fairly alternative part of the city called Uzupis this place is more alternative than most, looking like a wooden forest cabin. Inside it’s stuffed with agricultural memorabilia (and a small aquarium), and the seating is all done out in natural wood. Focuses on Lithuanian farmhouse ales like the other Snekutis, but the owner seems to not work the bar here. I had an English-speaking but shy Lithuanian guy. Nice music, good traditional Lithuanian food, excellent ambience, and local beer with character. Not sure what more anyone could want, really.
