Khamovniki is one of very few drinkable local beers. It does not leave you bloated and brains turned jelly. What’s best, quality seems to have stayed constant for years. Normal retail price in corner stores 50-55 roubles.
That was beer which which my cousin Anton welcomed me to Moscow in May 1993. That was followed by a bottle of lemon-flavoured Stolichyana and the first Russian style hangover..
PS. Made at the Moscow Brewing company that offers brewery tours on Saturdays and Sundays.
