And also KKPA and Moscow restaurant-brewery "Pivzavod 77" realized new special bottling of beer with a commemorative label and cap.
   At the end of the second day, a traditional amateur beer tasting was carried out. This year she was with a trick: it was proposed to guess the country or at least to indicate whose beer - Russian or foreign.
   Beer labels and caps became the most popular collection objects among the participants of the 22nd meeting.
