Latvian beer brewers

Traditional Beer GlassBeer is a traditional Latvian beverage - it is impossible to imagine ancient or contemporary Latvian celebrations without it. Beer is the most commonly mentioned drink in Latvian folklore, and has innumerable folksongs dedicated to it.

In Latvia beer was traditionally brewed from barley and hops. Honey was also often added during the brewing process, and the product was then called medalus (honey beer). Juniper berries or wormwood were also added to give the beer flavour. Today there are many types of beer which are products of breweries throughout Latvia.
