Far larger than looks from the outside. Very good service, lots of chairs served, very full, people smoking inside. Bit too crowded for me. Clientele was young and higher class, nicely dressed. Plenty of cocktails but made with canned sodas etc. High prices, one draft beer – Carlsberg – 370 Lek so expensive but yeah “premium” foreign beer. Bottle selection was beers like Leffe. Almost club / party feel. Not my kind of scene, lots of high ratings online but not for a beer geeks. One of the few places in town I figure with some kind of beer menu. Rare palce where you can also pay by card.

Located on the outskirts of Korçë (obv. still easy walk) , brewery is visible behind the beer garden associated with it. Beer garden looks amazing, covered terrace was very nice as well. Efficient service. One beer on tap, the blond in beer pulls for amazing price of 70 Lek, this fresh it is very neutral with atmosphere and slight fitting diacetyl in the end it could pass for an okay Světlý in Czech Republic. Price, location and beer, there is no topping this locally really in my opinion. They also have their Tmavý in 500 ml. bottles for 150 Lek. Food menu is split between grilled meat and interesting veggie side dishes, tried the grilled vegetables and quite enjoyed them. Should be done if in the area.

West side of the city. Large lovely comfy terrace with some pillows, interior looked nice as well. Largely empty when I was there. Some interesting beers on tap with about 5 taps. Impressive bottle list including likes of Del Borgo, Kyakao, Dogma etc. Few beers I haven’t seen elsewhere. Impressive selection but prices were higher than elsewhere on anything. Kyako some beers were 28 euro. I ordered a vintage Kyako and owner swirled bottle before pouring it all out, who does that? They had an 28 euro – 2019 Vintage Cantillon Geuze, imagine ordering that and the bro swirling it. Some interesting looking BBQ food available. So some very interesting and nice beers available for sure but prices were a bit too high. Snakc was Dorito style chips with sweet chili sauce, nice.

Friendly service, empty save for a tourist couple but a large local group swung by and got some beers and left immediately. 4 taps but only 3 were on from local breweries Ali and Sknipa. Decent prices and a small but nice selection of cans and bottles. Nothing crazy but some good beers available. Sport memorabilia also and a tv on which they sometimes but not always show sports on.

Lovely terrace right next to the Turkish consultancy / Atatürk birth house. Had one meh beer on tap, some interesting Greek bottles. Coffee house part of the place looked more interesting than beer part looking at what people were ordering. Thought about coming back to get coffee but didn’t happen unfortunately. My snack was nuts tough and not potato wedges.

Deep large modern looking bar, felt bit too large and slightly posh. Two waitresses present which seemed a bit much so they had to awkwardly stand for most of the time. I got a whole bottle of water instead of glass, nice. Prices were reasonable. I had a weirdly cheap Bevog beer – cheaper than at the brewery. Waitresses didn’t seem to be familiar with the beer, tried also an okay priced Greek RIS. Some interesting Greek beers and rather surprising international selection with beers like Pinta and Siren. Needs to be a bit more full to be a bit more comfy probably. Definitely some good beers to be found but felt like the place needed bit more of an identity than this odd posh restaurant vibe.

Service was really friendly and as such I feel bad about rating this lovely. 3 beers available upon visit, interior looked quite like a mess, oddly painted, fermenters and “ironic” communist memorabilia. Very centrally located, very cheap prices 2.50 euro for my large lager pour, 3.50 for the IPA and Stout. The problem here is the beer was really awful, totally infected, huge unpleasant dishwasher soap taste, rancid, if this guy run a restaurant he would be in prison. The chips were also strangely soggy, friendly service ‘tough.

What a really strange place, the skull logo on the outside, black walls and metal-esque murals that seemed to be brainstormed by a 14 year old’s idea of a cool metal bar. I also got served in French – I have absolutely no idea as to why? Friendly service tough, almost all taps and they had a lot were macro rubbish, lager largely but also about 5 taps from Sknipa, surprisingly large selection, Sknipa taps were quite pricy but their beers seemed expensive elsewhere as well. Some interesting cans and bottles in the fridge but also things like Hobgoblin. Large televisions, bar in the middle of the room so you can sit on all sides, black, dark green, dark brown interior. Just weird, couldn’t make heads or tails of it. Music wasn’t metal either more like some vague rock I didn’t know, very odd.
