Tasting: an impressive line of varieties from the Russian Pivot Point brewery

Almost the entire line of the Russian Pivot Point brewery has appeared on sale in Minsk bars and shops. Pivo.by conducted a tasting of thirteen varieties: from light and strong IPL to strong double IPA. The tasting commission consisted of five people that day, which greatly facilitated the process of consumption and allowed to receive an unbiased feedback.

The Russian Pivot Point brewery began its production activities in early 2019.
