Aldaris Beer Museum Riga

Aldaris Beer Museum Riga

The Aldaris brewery was originally in the Sarkandaugava district of Riga, a working-class area on the outskirts of the city. Now this building houses a beer museum, called the Aldara alus darbnīca, which introduces visitors to the world of beer. It takes them through the 13 steps of the beer brewing process, revealing some secrets of trade and providing answers to a variety of interesting questions, such as, what are the differences between different types of beer.

A highlight of the museum is the real historical brewery, containing the original copper tanks from 1938. With the help of the newest technologies, the museum created an interactive exhibit of the old tanks that lets visitors learn more about the four main ingredients of beer: water, malt, hops, and yeast.

Thanks to the unique and interesting location, the Aldaris Beer Museum is often chosen as a place for corporate events, team-building activities and other thematic events that draw diverse groups of people. One wing of the building features the real brewery. Through a glass wall, visitors to the museum can watch the bottling line, where the beer is filled into bottles. Just a short while later they can taste this very same beer at the museum's bar, which also has a periodic table of beers prepared by a beer sommelier.
