If you go

RULE TAPROOM: http://ruletaproom.ru/, 19 Starovagankovskiy Lane, Moscow. Tucked in an alley steps from the Kremlin, the Brooklyn-inspired bar owned by the makers of Zagovor has one of the best beer selections in Moscow, with around 27 brews on tap. Don’t miss the inventive tap handles – from a Soviet-era hammer and sickle, to a hand grenade, AK-47 magazine and a Lenin bust. There is a vast rotating cast of Russian beers, but go with the local brew, Zagovor. Look out for any of their collaborations with New York breweries, like their recent brew with Brooklyn-based KCBC. Prices range from 180-300 rubles ($3-5).
REDRUM: https://www.facebook.com/redrumbarspb/, 26 Nekrasova St., St. Petersburg. RedRum is owned by the AF Brew. Minimalist decoration, also serves food. They have 24 beers on tap, about a third their own AF Brew and others from Russian and European breweries.
JAWS: http://jawsbeer.ru/en/, Turgeneva 3, Yekaterinburg.
