Craft Beer Lab – Fancy a pint?

This place just opened about 2 months ago in Akaretler, Besiktas district. It is between the port of Besiktas and Nisantasi- very easy to find.

When you look at the place from outside, it looks like just a regular pub, but as you walk in, you will be amazed by the decoration inside. I loved the colors on the wall and the lighting was perfect.

I was going to have a pint and small snacks quickly, but then later found out that they had a beautiful garden on the backyard – one more reason for me to go to this place again with my friends.

You need to go downstairs and then the big green garden will welcome you. It is not surprising though, if you feel like you are at a typical British pub, but of course a much newer one. 🙂

They obviously have quite a big menu with beers – I think around 4 pages were full of different kinds of beers, most of which I had never heard of before. If you are not an expert on beers, it is better to ask the waitress for help.They also have hamburgers, chips, tacos, mussels, etc. – everything that goes perfect with beer.

I need to warn you though: since they are newly opened, some of the drinks on the menu might not be available, but the waitresses are very kind to offer you something else.

It is just perfect in summer for sitting in the backyard, having a pint and reading your book.
