City Guide

   Ale House

     This is the pub, where you can draft yourself a glass of live beer from a beer tap, placed at your table. Thanks to the big fermentation tanks the pub becomes part of the brewery. In the past only brewers were privileged to test ale that is live, not pasteurised, not containing any conservatives or stabilizers. Every client, connoisseur and beer fan can test it in Ale House now. You can pour as much as you like and you can read the quantity on a digital display, just above the tap.

     And if you are not very fond of beer, you have the choice among over thirty kinds of whisky. There is Scotch, Irish, malt, and grain, blended and aged whiskies. There is also an impressive choice of bourbon, cognac, vodka, digestives, and liqueurs, two limited kinds of grape rakia – Cultured and The Canes that are exclusively made for this pub and cannot be found anywhere else.

     Along with all those comes a variety of delicious meals – its slender veal and pork knuckles, sausages, chicken and game.
