7 At the Moscow Brewery

At the Moscow Brewery

Posted on November 28, 2012 by team

Are Russian breweries much different from what one can see in other countries where beer is a popular drink? We are going to visit one brewery in Moscow right now and check this out.

Hop is one of the most important ingredients for beer. This is a Cannabaceae plant, by the way.

The second important ingredient is malt. Nearly all beer in the world is made from hop, malt and water. But if technologies are so alike, why do we have so many sorts of beer? What does beer color depend on? It depends on malt. If it is fried, the resulting beer is dark.

This is a brewing room. There are five Ziemann reservoirs here. The final product of brewing is substance called cold hopped wort. Light beer is made from light wort. Special worts can give dark beer or beer of a caramel color.

Wort is added into beer to make it a bit bitter and give it special aroma. The brewing process is automated and controlled from the special room.

Water is also important for making tasty beer. It should be pure and soft. The Moscow Brewing company has its own wells.

Here the drink frets.

As specialists say “no yeast – no beer”.

The yeast can be seen through this little window.

These tanks are as large as five-storey buildings!

    Zhiguli Barnoe is actually a pretty decent “euro”-lager, better than Bud, Corrs, Miller etc. but inferior to some high end lager found in Europe, Russia and elsewhere (yes, there is heaps of great beer in the US too, it’s just not that widely marketed).
