About Latvia Beer Festival
The largest beer fest in the Baltics is your chance to sample over 200 types of beer.
You’ll discover many local and regional brews, along with European favourites and exceptional craft beers from around the world.
Locals and tourists alike flock to this lively festival, which takes place in the centre of the beautiful city of Riga.
It started in 2012 and has since become a firm fixture in the city’s event calendar.
Latvia Beer Festival Opening Ceremony
Each year a different brewery has bestowed the honour of making the beer for the opening ceremony.
This year “Cesu Alus” is the brewery in the spotlight.
An award-winning brewery, and one of Latvia’s most respected beverage companies, it is known for being environmentally friendly and socially responsible.
They promise to treat festival-goers with a unique brew made from a combination of special and secret ingredients.
Once the barrel has been rolled out and opened, the festival is considered officially open!
