  • Explore one or more craft beer districts with a local beer enthusiast
  • Check out at least 3 beer bars
  • Broaden your knowledge of beer styles and brewing
  • Enjoy the company of your personal “beer sommelier”, who’ll try to delight your taste buds


This tour takes about 3 hours and includes visits to at least 3 different bars.

During the tour I’ll tell you about the city (optional: if you already know everything about the damn city and your main interest is beer, then okay, conversation will be strictly about beer – you decide!), the basics of brewing, the history of brewing in Russia and the craft beer revolution in Moscow, which is happening right at this moment.

According to your tastes, I’ll recommend some decent local (and non-local) beers.

The main goals of the tour are to explore the city, to learn something new about beer, to taste some new beers, to visit interesting local craft beer bars and to have fun.

As I don’t know how much you’ll want to drink, the beer isn’t included in the price.

Все было здорово!
Best Experience in Moscow
First I want to thank Andrey for being such polite, and a nice man! He was right on time waiting for me, greeted and started our walk for the tour soon. As it was the FIFA World Cup time, our first place was over-filled with beer lovers. So we walked into another and continued from there on. Andrey told me about how the Craft Beer Rev started in Moscow and many fine details too. We jumped a few local bars, had supper and spoke like 'old friends meeting after a long time'. The beers he suggested were pretty great tasting with nice aftertaste!
He is a great guide, knowledgeable and very friendly! For any beer lovers, this tour is definitely recommended. :)
Fantastic Tour with Andrey!
Paul and I came to Moscow during the world cup 2018 and decided to take the craft beer tour with Andrey. He was a fantastic guide, gave a good in depth background of the history of many of the Moscow breweries. I recently became interested in craft beer and during the tour, was introduced to new types of craft beer which doesn't exist where we come from in NZ. We also had a lot of common interests with Andrey including football and Reddit. Overall it was awesome way to get to know some of the hidden bars around Moscow. Thanks Andrey for the awesome tour and will definitely recommend for others coming to Moscow.
Great experience with local russian with cool bars and some good beer
Interesting bars with an interesting guide
Not the easiest group, we were a family of 3 students and parents and Andrey did a great job of including us all. We’ve lived in Moscow for 4.5 years and have been to some tucked-away places but he managed to take us to some bars that we didn’t know existed. Very cool experience - thanks
Amazing tour
Andrey is a really nice guy and knows a lot about russian craft beer scene. He showed me really cool bars and suggested amazing russian craft beers. Totally recommend the tour!
Very interesting tour with a friendly, well-informed guide
Andrey was excellent in showing some interesting spots and speaking about the development of the craft beer industry in Russia in recent years. Has some good places picked out as well. Always good to go with a local on an evening out to see parts of the city and hear about a unique sector.
Good choice if you want to find the popular craft beer destinations
The guide was friendly and had a great interest for craft beer. He showed us the popular local craft beer places that we wouldn't have found our selves. The only downside is that these places are small and popular, so we could not always get a table when we arrived. Otherwise this tour is recommended to do in the beginning of your visit so you know which places to revisit if you're off for some craft beer.
Excellent tour
Whether you love craft beer or just want to see some incredible bars off the usual tourist track then this is the tour for you. Our guide Andrey was very knowledgeable about beer, Russian life and the city of Moscow itself. It’s like hanging out with a new friend and he even followed up with some recommendations for other bars to go to for our remaining time in the city the next day. Thanks again Andrey!
A GREAT way to experience Moscow
I recently traveled to Russia for the first time. When I was looking for things to do, I came across this tour. It sounded interesting and a great way to have a drink at some hidden gems. It was all that and more.

Andrey was a perfectly welcoming and knowledgeable guide. He chose some fun bars and had lots of recommendations. (Except for Saldens...he said maybe I shouldn't try that one). Our tour was filled with great conversation about Moscow history and some of the background on the bars we visited. All the beer we tasted was local and supported the booming craft scene in Russia.

I would highly recommend this tour to anyone looking for a fun night out with a perfectly amiable guide.
Very fun tour!
If you like craft beer I recommend you take this tour. Andrew is very knowledgeable of the craft brew scene in Russia and can recommend beers that you will enjoy!
