About The Tour

Tour Description

We will start our day with the relaxed drive through the countryside of Latvia. During the transfer you will see the typical landscapes of Latvia and get impression of the rural way of life here.

First object of the day is a beer brewery which creates it's premium beer slowly and with the best care. This beer is recognized as good beer by every Latvian.

In Valmiermuiža brewery, you will enjoy the beer and different localy made snacks which are picked perfectly for the beer you will be drinking. You will witness the production processes of one of the best beers in the country and of course also taste a few of them.

A true lover of Latvian beers will definately suggest you to try live beer "Brengulis". We are also between these people who will recommend you to give this beer a go, so we are taking you to another, smaller beer brewery close by - "Brengulis Beer"

"Brengulis" beer brewery honors the ancient brewing recipes. This beer is not filtered and is called "Live beer" by locals. It's a very small beer brewery and it's hard to find it's production in the shops and not every bar has it on their drink list, so one of the best ways to taste it is to come right to the brewery and taste in a nice outdoor beer garden.

After a pleasant rest and beer tasting, day takes us further to one of the nicest towns of Latvia - Cēsis to visit medieval castle ruins. If time and your strength will allow maybe another beer awaits before returning back to Riga.

Rihards was a great tour guide and the tour was amazing! We booked the Beer and Cheese tour and couldn't have been more pleased. It was definitely the highlight of our trip! We definitely recommend this tour company to anyone who visits Riga!

"Relaxed day with some fine beer"

I wanted a day trip to get out in the country a bit and this was a great option. Rihards arranged an interesting day despite it being out of season, heading out to Valmiera for beer that easily compares with the best I've tasted. On the way back also stopping in a beautiful little town called Cēsis for a walkabout.

I'm pretty quiet at the best of times, but Rihards' sharing of some of Latvia's history and countless other stories kept even me engaged all day. I'd recommend Discover Latvia to anyone, really helpful in a country where going it alone would not be that easy I think.
