“Labietis brewpub (Aristīda Briāna street 9a-2, entrance from the courtyard) - a pub and a brewery in 170m2, where you can have a beer, whilst watching the hum and bustle of the brewery through a big glass wall. Twelve different beers on tap, as well as extra ones - bottle conditioned - from the brews that are waiting in line for the tap or have been sold out in kegs. All the available beers have not been moved more than 30m from grain to glass. This is the heart and soul of Labietis where you can always try new and exciting experimental brews and enjoy the lively atmosphere of a latvian pub”
