Latvians love a cold beer and they’re well known for their hospitality and brewing traditions – both of which are on display in abundance at the annual Latvia Beer Fest held each May in the heart of the country’s beguiling capital, Riga – ‘the Paris of the East’.
All the major Latvian breweries are on show along with many classic European favorites. Good beer demands great food and with catering supplied by some of the best local and foreign chefs and restaurants, you certainly won’t go hungry. There’s live music every day along with competitions, shows and much more for the aficionado of the amber liquid.
