Šnekutis is one of the more famous characters in propagation of traditional Lithuanian beer drinking. So – three bars named after him shouldn’t sound as a big surprise. The list begins with Šnekutis at Užupis, then there is Šnekutis usually referred to as ” the one next to the egg” and the last addition to the bunch is the Šnekutis next to the St. Nicholas church, which by the way is the oldest church in Lithuania.
Last but not least as they say. Well, the last Šnekutis I’ve mentioned even comes first in my personal list. And that is based on a few stronger attributes than just a holy place next door. Šnekutis at Mikalojaus (Lithuanian for Nicholas) holds the biggest capacity of beer craving visitors. So if you’re with a bigger bunch of friends this will be the spot to pack you in all at one table. If it’s the weekend – just for safety – reserve a table. Especially knowing that you might get yourself into trying out some of that traditional Lithuanian food.
However the main advantage for me is that this spot has the widest range (maybe even in all of Vilnius) of locally brewed beers from all around Lithuania. Here you will find the best produce from small traditional brewers and also a various palette of fresh crafty Lithuanian-made IPA’s and brews like such. All on tap and for more than a decent price. Here’s a challenge for you – grab your friends and try them all!
