The place reviewed by Beershine and Oakes was in a ramshackle building at a major crossroads in the centre of Ekaterinburg and it is now closed down and semi-derelict. Iíve subsequently done some Google searching and I think it may have moved to ul. Belorechenskaya, d. 11. Unfortunately I wasnít able to check it out so I canít really review it (in order to be able to enter this information Iíve put in nominal scores based on what Beershine and Oakes said). It sounds as if it might be well worth a visit so for anyone who finds themselves in the area, this is the website address: http://www.бармаркет.рф

This place was one of the beer highlights of the Trans-Siberian! Found it totally by accident while walking through Ekatrienberg looking for a brewpub. The first room is a bottle shop, which is good enough with a selection of Russian and imported beers. But the inner room is a treasure--itís a taproom! A counter with about a dozen taps, not for drinking on premises but for filling bottles of minimum 1 liter. The taps include a few obscure Russian micros and some Belgian and other imports. Customers buy the plastic bottles of their choice, take them outside to a public bench and drink with friends. The fish counter next to the beer taps is epic too. Gotta love Russia.

Great and popular beer store. They offer a wide range of taps from which you can get a plastic bottle to go. They have their own house beers, made at a local microbrewery. The bottle list is also pretty good for provincial Russia. They have a whole dried fish counter, which is so awesomely Russian. Great store, definitely stop here if youíre in town.
