Good place, need more class ?quipment in the environment. Music is sometimes shitty, does not fit to class beer. Mozart needed here! There you can find many craft beers, many of US craft beers, but not the rare stuffs... like from the bruery, southern tier, toppling goliath, ayinger, cigar city... but still many 100 points rated beers you can find here. Prices are not so cheap, but expensive as in some pub/shops in Europe. I like it...

Nice ambient place, especially the patio. 12 taps out of which 2 were Bulgarian. Quality international choices, though. Also a few dozen bottles visible, didn’t ask what else was available. Definitely worth a visit when coming to Sofia.

Visited the 29th June 2017 - visited at the opening - nice modern place with a nice garden and a full glass room to enjoy sunlight. Very friendly staff and very helpful. I recommend you to discuss with the staff if you want to find some treasure because there is no menu. Cosy ambiance with soft music. I really enjoy it. High recommended, for sure the best beer place in Sofia.

Nice dimly lit bar, larger inside than it looks from outside. Minor disappointment that there was only one Bulgarian beer on draft and looking at the displayed bottles no Bulgarian ones to be seen - however on asking I was offered half a dozen Bulgarian craft bottles, 5 of which I bought to take out (25% discount) and the other I rejected as it was p*mpk*n. The draft list included Prairie Artisan, Evil Twin, Omnipollo, De Molen...

The owner is a great man thrilled by beer. At the store there are many beers that you cansee and more that you can’t see because there are in cellar! You have to ask the crew for something special! The best beer place in Bulgaria and one of the bests in Balkans!

This is the bestcraft beer place in Bulgaria, no doubt about it... Nice place with modern decoration, amazing open yard, great selection of Bulgarian craft, Serbian, Rumanian, Belgian craft gems, US beers and delicious craft beers from all the best brewers in Europe. I’ve visited the cellar with the owner ( Liubomir is an amazing dude, so dedicated and in love with craft beer and he started all this beer revolution in Bulgaria. Still leading the way and prepares new projects) and I was shocked and surprised with the tons of amazing beers down there. Ask for more beers at the bar and they can show you how many great gems they’ve got in Kanaal. This place is a must visit and one of the best places in Europe... Don’t miss it. It worth a trip in Sofia just to drink here...

Awesome craft beers in Bulgaria and a good scene? Sign me up! I love Bulgaria BTW. Here for clinical trials, and I may move here to avoid San Francisco rents/home prices, which suck a fat one. Already picking up the local language. дайте ми някакви бири!!! This place is chill as hell, has 300 beers (although they really need to give you a menu instead of "we’ll recommend one"), and has awesome service. I will bring my buddies here some Pliny next time I come, mark my words.
