Kiev beer festival - 7th-8th October 2017
This is a festival of beer culture, where the theme is not only craft beer, but also quality Ukrainian beer and beer of other countries. Now the production of craft beer is actively developing in Ukraine, the number of private mini-breweries is growing, and such a festival is a wonderful opportunity for them to make themselves known. Also, to support domestic producers on the wave of craft brewing, the team began to produce beer under its own brand Ulichnaya Eda. See Website for full details
