Tourists can learn about the history of the estate and the brewing of beer, beginning with raw materials and ending with finished products. The visit is enriched by tastings of live beer and stories about Latvia’s traditional holiday beverage. Alongside the brewery is a store which sells live beer, homemade goodies and selected souvenirs.

The “Valmiermuižas alus virtuve” saloon popularises Latvian beers and uses beer in various dishes. A modern approach to homemade products is used to prepare foods and beer-based snacks. There is a beer garden during the summer, and the saloon merges traditional things with modern ones.

Latvian cuisine: Smoked pork, filet of pike from Lake Burtnieks, green pea mash, with loganberries, quince, pumpkin birch juice and mushroom sauce as accompaniments.

Special foods: Slice of pork marinated in unfiltered winter beer.

Brewing of beer and non-alcoholic beverages. In 2014 1.86 million liters of beer were produced. In 2014, Valmiermuižas Alus earned revenues of EUR 3.39 million, or 36% more than in 2013.  The company sold 1.86 million litres of beer, or 27.3% more than the year before.  Approximately 1% of the output was exported to Estonia.  With support from the Rural Support Service, Valmiermuižas Alus invested EUR 1.1 million in development to produce porter beer, non-alcoholic sparkling beverages from Latvian fruits and berries, as well as kvass.
