Alivaria Beer Museum

Brewery in Minsk

This is the granddaddy of Minsk's breweries, founded more than 150 years ago. The standard tours are in Russian, but if you email ahead, an English-language tour can be arranged as long as there are at least eight in your group.

A substantial chunk of the tour is spent sampling the amber ambrosia. If you can't make a tour happen, drop in at 2pm on Saturday for an exhibition followed by a tasting. It's centrally located, two blocks north of Trinity Hill.
