Craft beer gem in
Vilnius Old Town
Why locals love it
Vilnius' Craft Beer Merchants offer top Lithuanian beers, as well as an evolving collection of bottled beer from different parts of Europe and a rotating selection of draft beers. Owners are super friendly and can organize tastings and offer great snack pairings. It's a shop, too, so don't forget to grab a couple bottles to go!
Why you should visit it
The place is owned and run by a knowledgeable and friendly couple who can help you find something to suit your palate, or guide you in trying something new. Alaus Pirkliai is frequented by local beer lovers and it's pretty cozy, so even if you're alone, you'll be sure to rub shoulders with some like-minded people while enjoying a pint (or three).
They have freshly roasted coffee. They also have a partnership with a nearby burger resto (Le Butcher), so you can order a burger to their shop, too!
