Brewery "Valmiermuižas alus" is located in the historic centre of Valmiermuiža, where it is still possible to feel the spirit of the manor and enjoy the hospitality of its owners.

The brewery "Valmiermuižas alus" was built not far from Valmiera, near the place where once stood a sophisticated manor castle.

To the present day, the tower of the Valmiermuiža castle has been preserved and is surrounded by a vast park with ancient oaks, lindens and other stately trees that witnessed events of the past.

The family of the near brewery "Valmiermuižas alus" continues the tradition of manor hospitality, producing delicious master's beer and hosting guests from near and far places.

From ancestral times beer was put on the Latvian festive tables and enjoyed not only with light repasts, but also with hearty meals. There is historic witness that 190 beer casks were prepared in the 17th century in the Valmiera Castle Manor. Therefore, to make the foamy festive drink rich in tradition, the brewery "Valmiermuižas alus" brews the beer using old recipes and following ancestral secrets.
