The best place to go for locally brewed craft as for now.
They do totally different styles (think of Mild, American Wheat etc which are almost total strangers to Ukrainian drinkers, I’m not talking about beer-geeks) and usually get them right.
The place itself is rather small, thought there is pretty big summer terrace, but it’s unavailable in cold season. It can be crowded in prime-time - so don’t forget to make reservation - and the staff tries to do its best but sometimes you do wish they bring drinks and food faster. The place is terrible in means of getting there by public transport, but there are few options, including taxi and bikes, as they have bicycle parking.
But that’s the only flaws. The ambiance, beers and food are terrific. Almost all the time there are at least 6 of home-beers on tap, sometimes there are as much as 11, and rarely they have some guest-beers. Some beers are available in bottles.
Lisopylka is a must in Kyiv
