Piebalga is Latvia's most ecologically clean country, with a rich history and an irresistible landscape. We respect the roots of this county and brew the beer in the way the old neighbourhood brewers have done.
We achieve the specific nature and taste of Piebalgas beer because:
- We continue to brew consistently, following the traditions of the classical German Reinheitsgebot adopted of 1512 or the Brewers' Code of Honour.
- We are one of the rare breweries in Latvia, which still uses also open fermentation technology, thereby ensuring the uniqueness of beer born with its tantrums and tricks, and each brew must be cherished just like a little child.
- We grow our own yeast, which is a raw material unique and characteristic only to our brewery, with its own microclimate and environment. In order to ensure availability of the yeast, it has been safely stored at the Latvia University of Agriculture and is reared for the harvesting of lots.
- Our brewing skills are demonstrated by us through use of only four ingredients in production: borehole water itself, barley malt, hops and our own grown yeast.
Limited assortment of our brewery is filled by us in PET packaging, however, we strongly believe that real fermented beers and kvass have their place in glass bottles and metal kegs. As a socially responsible and nature-friendly company, we actively support re-collection and re-use of our glass containers in the manufacturing process.
