Stumbled upon this place after frequenting the area for almost two years. Doesn't look like much from the outside - a two story temporary building plopped down next to the Krasnopresnyenskaya metro stop in central Moscow. There's a nice outside patio for about 30 patrons. The inside is mobile home cheesy: white tile ceiling, yellow aluminum siding walls, red-brown tile floor, fairly flimsy wooden tables and chairs. The upstairs dining room, big enough for about 50, looks better than the bar on the ground floor. That ain't saying much. Grape vines adorn all walls upstairs and two walls downstairs. The other two walls below are occupied by the bar and a row of slot machines. Some cheap art and beer ads are also visible. Downstairs seats about 25, plus three barstools. Service was attentive, but didn't really seem to care much about the customers. Four tables were occupied at 1:00 p.m. on a Thursday. The menu was plain, but inexpensive and the food was pretty good.

Beers? That's what's good about this place. Six taps (2 Russians, one Czech, three Germans) and 22 bottles. The bottles include 2 Russian, 5 German, 4 Czechs, 4 Belgians (Abbey des Rocs, Montagnarde, Leffe Blond and Bruin), 2 Austrian, 2 Irish, and one each from the US (Miller), France and Mexico. The presence of Abbey des Rocs was a stunner, and immediately made this place BA worthy. Unfortunately, my AdR was served in the bottle accompanied by a straight-walled Altglas. It was also too cold, but that problem was easily overcome by a bit of patience. Overall, I got quite a kick out of this place: a dive in Russia with outstanding beer. I'll be back..
