Lviv – Tsypa

We couldn’t initially find this craft beer bar as we had just assumed it was at street level, but it’s actually down some steps in an atmospheric basement location. It’s clearly signed when looking down towards the steps, with the opening hours chalked up on the board.

The beer selection which had some interesting dark beer options, with the staff member also willing to give further information about them. The service was excellent, it was always attentive, friendly and helpful.

There’s also a printed beer list.

Contemplating something…..

The interior, all clean and comfortable. There’s a reasonable amount of seating inside, and there are also some seats by the bar.

We didn’t order food on this visit, but I noticed that the food being served looked rather appetising.

I tried a few beers, this is the milk stout, which cost around £1.30. Rich in flavour, at the appropriate slightly chilled temperature and it had a pleasant aftertaste. I also finished the visit with the Cherry Twins fruit beer which was a sour and had an enjoyable flavour.

The bar accepts both cash and card and the staff member spoke excellent English. The prices are reasonable and I liked that the selection of beer was extensive and clearly well thought through.
