Russia's craze for craft beer that started several years ago didn't pass over the Golden Ring; you'll find several places specialising in craft beer on tap, very often from their own brewery. Small cities such as Vladimir, Kostroma and Yaroslavl will have a better selection of late-night bars, but most restaurants also serve beer, wine and spirits – handy for smaller towns without much nightlife.
