There are about 80 breweries of various sizes in Lithuania today. Although most of them are located in Northern part of Lithuania, where the old traditions of beer making are practiced today, Vilnius too, has an impressive beer culture worth checking out.
Below you can find a list of breweries and brewpubs. Some of them are located in the Vilnius Old Town, others are located just a few kilometers outside of Vilnius. Each of them has a great restaurant complementing the great beer they produce.
Actually, Vilnius in Love is best known for guided beer tours – during which, we visit at least one of these brewpubs.
As an old Lithuanian saying goes.. Although “you can never have too much of the good thing” – drink responsibly and have a great time!
This is mini brewery/bar, where beer has been brewed for 17 years already: the first micro-brewery pub in Vilnius, and the longest established bar on the street. They are both facts of which the establishment is rightly proud, but in fact they really should be directing everyone’s attention to the beers that they serve. This family-owned brewery/bar produces lager, dark and black beer shoots directly from barrels to your glass.
With own beer and Lithuanian cuisine, this is a place where locals feel right at home. If you‘re lucky, you might even get to see the brewery in the basement.
By the way, if you were wondering about the name – it means ‘you will be third’, harking back to a Soviet tradition, when vodka cost three roubles a bottle and a bottle was often shared between three.
