Have you ever been wondering about how the Russian beer is brewed? And, by the way, not just the Russian one. Except a few popular Russian brands of beer, such as Baltika, Jigulevskoe and Nevskoe, Arsenalnoe, Yarpivo there are some foreign ones also brewed over here (among them are Tuborg, Asahi, Kronenbourg 1664 and Carlsberg.)

The process of beer brewing begins at the grain elevator. By the way, Baltika company is the second largest owner of train cars in Russia after RZD monopoly.

The process of brewing is carried out by machines. At first, grain gets into a grinder, then into a malt mashing machine, where it is being separated as well, and then, eventually, into a boiling vessel.

      The darkest Baltika gets its color because it is filtered through asbestos filters. When my friend told me this [he was working in that factory] I swore never to drink the stuff again.

      No cancer for me. Those guys are scum, will do anything to get money. And inspectors are bribed so do nothing.
