Rule Taproom – When taps mean a lot

Craft beer is my favourite drink to have with friends and Moscow offers a number of cozy locations. Rule Taproom is one of my recent discoveries and it has definitely topped my personal craft map of Moscow. 

The pub is in the very centre of Moscow right behind the Russian State Library in a quiet sidestreet. The pub is in the yard right in front of a huge facade graffiti of Rhythm & Blues Cafe depicting bands and musicians that is hard to miss. When it’s warm outside, I adore sipping a glass of IPA outdoors and looking at this painted wall.

The feature of this spot is not just the variety of beers (although there are more than 25 sorts on tap) but also the taps themselves. Each one is customized in a DIY-way. It can be a huge ship-anchor chain, or Leo Tolstoy, or bowling skittle, or the top of a Soviet flag tower. Lo-ve-ly.

The beers are remarkable too – 80% of them are local and fortunately the craft beer revolution in Russia is a fact. Though there is no strict menu in Rule (once one beer is over, another sort takes its place), I really suggest trying something brewed by Saldens and AF Brew – they surprise me a lot with their Hazelnut stout and sea-buckthorn puree ale.
