Modern-day Moscow’s craft beer scene can be found at various bars, pubs and cafes throughout the city centre. There is a wealth of beer spots in Moscow, where visitors can spend their evenings; however, we found seven craft beer bars that are a step above the rest.


Beermarket shop and bar, located in Moscow’s Tverskoy District, is truly one of the most popular spots among locals, who love good beer, nice company and football. Here you can try craft beer from all over the world, from classic Belgian to newly crafted Australian. This place is usually full, so we highly recommend booking a table in advance, especially during match days.
