Riga Beer District

Riga Beer District

During the 19th century, Riga was a brewing capital, whose breweries worked non-stop to supply delicious beer to Rigans and neighbouring communities, eager for a taste for sweet miestiņš. The cornerstones of the Riga Beer District were the historical breweries of Kimmel, Kunzendorff and von Stritzky. Back in the day, it was said that the water sourced from the depths of the earth in this part of town was simply perfect for brewing beer. Although an age of turmoil and upheaval led to the demise of these brewing giants, the spirit of beer lives on here and is now experiencing a successful revival. First of all, Valmiermuiža Brewery established its embassy in the premises of the former Stritzky brewery. Subsequently, one new beer pub after another began to sprout up in this neighbourhood, some of which are even equipped with all the necessary brewing apparatus to brew their beers on the spot.
