Craft Beer Delivery in Kyiv

Since we first moved to Ukraine in 2014, craft beer in Ukraine has exploded. There are craft beer breweries all over Ukraine, in all the main cities. Regular craft beer festivals attract hundreds of stalls from local Ukrainian craft beer breweries and are packed with people. Craft beer pubs are popping up all over the country, both owned by specific breweries or offering a range of local craft beer.

As I write this in April 2020, under quarantine for Covid 19, these pubs are closed and the spring beer festivals are not to be. In the meantime, the various craft beer breweries in Ukraine are offering delivery services. You can get your favourite craft beers delivered to you, sometimes to your flat but often to the local Nova Poshta. It’s also a good time to experiment and try new Ukrainian craft beers. Let’s support our local craft beer companies, while having entertaining nights in. Here is a list of places that do craft beer delivery in Kyiv.

Kyiv Craft Beer Breweries that deliver

Underwood Brewery, Kyiv

Underwood Brewery is one of the Ukrainian craft beer breweries in Kyiv that we’ve been trying over the last few months, largely because they sell their bottles in Silpo supermarkets. With 10 beers, including Kyiv Lager and Lime Saison, you can order direct from their website. The most recent is a coconut stout, which sounds like it might taste like cake, which is never a bad thing!

Recently, they’ve started offering a box with one of each type, and a branded glass, for 549 UAH. Delivery is to your local Nova Poshta at no cost. We have had one and all of them are good!

  • Website in English – No. You have to use Google Translate
  • Minimum order – 250 UAH
  • Payment on website – Yes
  • Delivery outside Kyiv – Yes

Kyiv Local Brewery

This company was new to us until last weekend when the guys in Punkraft bar (see below) recommended their beers. We had the Munich style lager – Dark Side, and India Pale Ale. Both were good and the bottles are funky.

  • Website in English – Facebook and Instagram
  • Delivery – By Nova Poshta
  • Free delivery – For box of 24 bottles.

How about trying all the local food while you are in quarantine. Read our post of Ukrainian dishes you must try.

Reformation Brewery (Rebrew) Kyiv

Rebrew is in Brovary, to the north of Kyiv. It’s available in several pubs and restaurants around us so we’ve had several types; Kate is a fan of the Popelka lager. Along with the lager, wheat beer, stout, and neipa (New English Pale Ale), they have a couple of sour ales: wild berry and tropical. Some beers come by the litre, others in 330 ml bottles.

Varvar, Bila Tservka (just outside Kyiv)

Varvar was one of the first Ukrainian craft beer breweries in Kyiv that we found out about, as they have there own bar in Kyiv. Their distinctive viking logo is found in other bars around the city, and in supermarkets like Silpo. Ten beers are on offer, with a Golden Ale, Hoppy Lager as well as more unusual ones like Samurai’s Daughter, an oriental ale, brewed with rice. When you order, they add a free bottle of hand sanitiser gel, which is always useful at the moment!

  • Payment on website – Yes
  • Delivery outside Kyiv- Yes
  • Free Delivery – Orders over 400 UAH

Mova Beer, Dnipro

We tried Mova beer a couple of years ago at a Mexican themed event at Art Zavod Platforma. There are now eight different beers, including a lager, citra IPA, Candy fruit pale ale, a porter and two different stouts.

We ordered a mix box of 12 beers this weekend, for 420 UAH by sending them a Facebook message. We paid through Privatbank terminal, send the payment slip and they shipped to beers that day, arriving two days later.

  • Delivery – By Nova Poshta
  • Minimum order – Box of 12 bottles.
  • Free delivery – Nova Poshta cost, although we didn’t pay anything.

Ten Men, Kharkiv

Ten Men is available in some craft beer pubs in Kyiv, but we had quite a lot of it during our recent trip to Kharkiv, where it comes from. There’s quite a variety of beers, and the website doesn’t sell all the types that we’ve had before. The Chocolate Sauce Pastry Stout, Go Strawberry Go milkshake IPA, Berry Blood BBR Imperial Gose and Berry Smoothie MCB Triple Pastry Gose sound very much like desserts and most of the beers on offer are pretty strong. Not that it matters if you are drinking at home and only need to stagger to bed.

Delivery is by Nova Poshta to anywhere in Ukraine for the Nova Poshta cost, in 330 ml bottles, most without labels, although I assume they stick a sticky label on so you know what it is.

  • Website in English -No. Use Google translate
  • Minimum order -Box of 12 bottles
  • Delivery -Nova Poshta
  • Free Delivery – No. Nova Poshta costs

Red Cat Brewery, Kharkiv

We noticed this shop when we were in Kharkiv recently. I’m not sure we;ve tried their beer before, but they have a wide range, including the Travel Range beers : Liverpool pale ale, Goa IPA, Dublin Milk Stout and five different sours: the tomato sour sounds interesting….we ordered some and, well let’s say it wasn’t for us!

They deliver by kg through Nova Poshta and at the moment, if you buy two, you get 1 free. 1kg is apparently just under a litre.

  • Website in English – No. Facebook page and Instagram and staff speak English
  • Delivery – Nova Poshta at Nova Poshta rates

Pravda Beer, Lviv

Another well known craft beer in Ukraine, Pravda comes from Lviv and makes the politically name beers Obama stout, Frau Ribbentrop blanche (named for Angela Merkel), Trudeau, Trump mexican style lager and Putin Huilo blonde ale.

In the centre of Lviv, the Beer Theatre has a full orchestra that plays a range of live music nightly. Well, they did. Obviously since quarantine, now we need to enjoy Pravda beer in our own homes.

When there isn’t quarantine, find out what to do on a visit to Lviv.

In total there are over 25 different varieties of craft beer available, in both 330 ml and 750 ml bottles. We got a box of bottles of various types this weekend, although when Kris went to pick it up, Kate forgot to mention that they were 750ml bottles he had to carry home, and now he can’t move his arms!

Hoppy Hog Family Brewery, Odessa

This brewery was new to us; it just came up as an advert on Facebook. They have around 10 different beers, with really interesting flavours going on. There’s a tiramisu stout which really tastes of cake, a milkshake IPA with a chilli aftertaste and a dark ale with rosemary flavours. It’s all very clever.

Look how pretty the labels are!

We ordered two of each type to try, by talking directly to them on Facebook messenger. They came boxed up to our local Nova Poshta after we transferred the money on a Privatbank terminal.

  • Website in English – no, but they speak good English
  • Payment on website – transfer on Privatbank
  • Delivery – Nova Poshta costs

Craft Beer Delivery in Kyiv from bars

Punkraft Bar

Last weekend we called into Punkraft Bar in Podil because we read that you could pickup Ukrainian craft beer from there. Indeed, the actual bar is open, by ‘bar’ I mean the high wooden thing with pubs behind. The bar itself is obviously closed, but a couple of bar staff remain, to fill up take away containers with draft and to sell a range of bottles, both from Ukraine and abroad. They do craft beer delivery in Kyiv of both.

    Kate… Kris… I can’t imagine how much painful research went into this, but I am so grateful. I’ll shake the Heineken out of George’s hand if I have to, and replace it with something much better.
