Since MM left Riga and flew to Westport, the blog has been more calm and quiet but you might as well expect more posts from now on both Latvia and Westport information.
Now the real thing: Latvia is pretty known by all the breweries and having a lot of variety concerning to one of our greatest loves – beer!
From May 26th until 29th in the Vermanes Garden we’ll have the greatest beer fest in the Baltics. Here you’ll have all sorts of beers that you can find in Latvia and each brand will have it’s own stand (we lost it when we saw Valmiermiuza one). The entrance fee is 2€ and if you’re in the center of Riga, it’s easy to get there. There are four entrances for the garden but the biggest ones would probably be the ones in Krisjana Barona Iela.
You’ll be able to see some concerts, chill in the lounges or just enjoy the sun in the grass while having a beer. The beer fest opens at 11 A.M. and it stays open until 1 A.M.
There are some warnings: you’ll have to pay entrance fee each day and you cannot smoke in all areas. The food is cheap (you can find Hot Dogs for 1,50€) and the beer is cheaper than it usually is. There is no “veggie friendly” place but you can get some snacks like the roasted potato in a stick (it does sound weird but it’s delicious)! In some stands, they’ll give you little latvian snacks to eat while you enjoy your beer.
For us the experience was crazy, we met some latvian people and it turned out to be really fun. After the LatviaBeerFest we went to the old town and we discover this new place with cheap cocktails but we’ll post it eventually.
There it goes some pictures of the LatviaBeerFest 2015 (the beer made it look blurry eheh):
And here you can find more information about this and some good pictures!
