June 24th of 2012 we were wandering around Moscow and thirsty. We had finished riding the Trans Siberian Railroad (said “SiBEERian”) and spent a little time exploring the sites before we were headed to St. Petersburg. Then we found Burgermeister. Their beer menu is astounding.
We tried a few excellent beers that we had never heard of. Check out Ebulum Elderberry Black Ale, from Scotland.
I also tried Seven Giraffes which was also from Scotland.
The Grimbergen Blonde was refreshing. 6.7% and from a recipe from monks from the 1100s.
We sat outside on their semi-enclosed patio. It was a little cool outside but nice to be outside. Drinks were not cheap – but it is Moscow. The view was good and the selection excellent.
