This one differs from the other restaurant / breweries by being 24/7. Above ground part looks like a greenhouse, went to the basement, lots of tv’s, sport playing, a sport bar where time ceases to exist. Macro beer and 3 of their own beers on tap, got the NEIPA, cheapest beer of similar places and totally drinkable, not great beer but nothing wrong with it, quaffable and in line with similar other places. Amazingly the NEIPA was made by the local branch of Efes. Food looks like chain food, same chain that owns a few other places. Uninterested service. Still better than expected for sure, worth popping by especially if you’re looking to watch some sports. It is all macro but price is good and quality is on par with some similar places.

There are multiple Craft Baza’s in town, mainly in residential areas but this one is located in the center of town. 15 – 18 taps (not all were on) with the all the essentials of Moldovan craft beer scene, Labrewtory, Elvis, Litra as well beer made specifically for Craft Baza by various breweries with not always a clear origin which included a tomato gose when I was there. Locals here vs. Taproom 27. Very friendly service, modern craft beer bar look, they do PET bottles growlers for take out which I assume is their main business in the residential location which I didn’t visit. Best selection in town, comparable to Taproom 27 but they have their own commissioned beers on top. Essential when in town.

This one is different from the other restaurant / taprooms in town, smaller, more intimate, more posh, looks more like a cocktail bar, located in a different neighbourhood. 10 beers on tap about half in lager styles, I tried the Mexican lager & the Alt beer, quite dull and bit bland, not very impressive. Only place in town where half pours made sense price-wise. I tried their guacamole which was better than expected and very nice. Service was really good, super friendly, nice people. Cocktails were more their dada – I tried a macadamia whiskey sour which I really enjoyed. Service, cocktails and look really elevated the place, would rate this higher as a cocktail place than a craft beer bar. Still worth checking out.

Another massive restaurant / brewpub, a very popular at that one, reservations are in order perhaps, I got a spot but not a prime one where I could admire the building. Service was geared to efficiency and this one felt more for locals. Beer selection was what expected, IPA, NEIPA, sweet Belgian, Porter etc. Beer was the most expensive compared to similar places but not overly. Tried the IPA and Porter both were in line with elsewhere, nothing great but serviceable to have a large pour of.

What a strange and surreal place. Massive and looks like a star restaurant, impeccable service, gorgeous interior, silver ware. Oddly Untappd verified location with 27 (!) of their own beers on tap. Prices are better than you would expect. I definitely felt out of place but service was attentive all the same. I tried a hummus & falafel which was tasty and came with a crazy amount of bread on the side. Had a flight of beers, sweet cherry beer, RIS, IPA, lager. Nothing was great but all were adequate for what you would expect and compared to other restaurants / breweries in town. Definitely far better than expected, crazy place.
