Beer is so much more than just a drink. Nothing goes better with a hot summer day with your friends than a cold glass of beer. Latvians are well known for their brewing traditions. To delight both local and foreign beer-lovers the Annual International Beer Festival Latviabeerfest will take place on May 25 – 27, 2012 in the heart of Riga: Vermanes Garden. All the major Latvian breweries will be participating alongside with the best European beer brands.
Latviabeerfest - three days of music, beer and fun!
Originated from a small fishermen village, for centuries Riga has been an important part of the trade chain between Russia and Western Europe. A lively crossroad of cultures and backgrounds for over 800 years, the historical centre of Riga has accumulated an impressive cultural baggage and today is justly included in the UNESCO’s World Heritage list.
