I like the enthusiasm of beer producing interpretation. Atmosphere in nice rustic shop is fabulous adding view or degustation of all nice local things. The best place for edible souvenirs in the region.

Visited the Valmiermuiza brewery this September and did the tour and beer tasting. Everything was top notch (our guide did the tour in English and Russian at the same time) and we were surprised to see how many by-products they also make (different kind of cookies, bread, paper) and that some of the by-products go to the cows who live in the surrounding farms who then give the milk and it ends up as cheese that we also had the chance to taste in beer tasting. What a nice circle of producing! Really loved the non-filtered beer. Keep the beer flowing!

A new brewery with a friendly staff and samples of beer and food made from brewery grains. A work in progress but they do a good job.

My wife scheduled a Valmiermuiza brewery tour for a large group of friends and colleagues. We live in Riga and the drive out there was quite long, about 110 kilometers from Riga. Even though the drive was a bit far it was well worth the trip not only for the beer but also for seeing the beautiful Latvian country side.

Upon our arrival the tour guide met us and showed us around the brewery shop. She then took us through the brewery, showed us a lot of the brewing process and explained the art of beer making. This brewery is not very large but it has an impressive capacity of around 100,000 liters per month; if I remember correctly. The beer is brewed kind of on demand, it's not anheuser busch with brewing, bottling and packaging 24/7. This brewery holds less than 1% of the beer market in Latvia and has to skillfully determine when they will begin new batches of beer to meet market demand. The summer time keeps them very busy though!

When the tour was over we went into a very nice antique looking dining room that overlooks the beer vats where the final products "sleeps" or settles for natural carbonation and other purposes. There were two kegs of filtered and unfiltered Valmiermuzia beer on draught and plates of cheese and beer snacks. The tour guide explained the process of pouring the beer properly as well as how to look at the different qualities of the filtered and unfiltered beers. The brewery has a dark beer as well but unfortunately during our visit this was not available on draught but in bottles only. After the beer lessons we all began to drink and talk for the next 30 minutes and we had a wonderful time.

I would highly recommend this attraction to anyone interested in getting out of the city to experience more traditional tourist activities. This was fantastic.

One of the best new Latvian beers is Valmiermuizas, and the brewery is open for visitors and brief tours. The brewery is brand new, contained in a restored manor house in the Valmiera area. It is easily reached on foot (less than a 30 minute walk from the Valmiera bus station, a bit longer walk from the train station). It can easily be a day trip from Riga.

Tours are available in English, and, of course, there is a tasting at the end. Be sure to try the unfiltered brew! The beer is brewed from imported German hops, and is now one of the most demanded beers in Latvia.
