ŠVYTURYS is proud to bridge the connection between Lithuania’s love for a light beer and the perfect balance between lightness and taste. Today, the beer culture in Lithuania is shifting towards high quality light beer. This is why we have created ŠVYTURYS PREMIUM PILS, a beer especially for consumers who appreciate taste, quality, and lightness.

With ŠVYTURYS PREMIUM PILS, get ready for a new light beer experience. It has a light taste, golden colour, and is only 3.9% alcohol by volume. PREMIUM PILS (excluding ŠVYTURIO NEALKOHOLINIS) is the lightest beer produced by ŠVYTURYS.

Light, smooth, and refreshing ŠVYTURYS PREMIUM PILS is the perfect blend of lightness and rich taste. With a mild flavour and the slightly bitter aroma of hops, it is a refreshing beer that is extraordinarily easy to drink.

This exceptional combination of rich taste and light freshness is obtained using a unique beer production technology known as ‘krausening’. In this procedure, mature beer is gradually mixed with young, 3-day-old beer, and then its taste is balanced during the final maturing stages.

ŠVYTURYS is the only leading Lithuanian brewery with cold cellars. And such a beer production process as this is only possible in breweries that still have naturally cold cellars with additionally installed containers. Longer storage times in cellars add a deepness, clearness, and mildness to the taste of the beer making it easier and more pleasant to enjoy. A double storage period makes the beer absolutely clear, mature, and its flavour becomes more distinct. The carbon dioxide, which dissolves in the beer naturally, later gives it a thick, long-lasting head. ŠVYTURYS PREMIUM PILS is a wonderful light beer experience.

Experience ŠVYTURYS PREMIUM PILS, a beer that gives you the pleasure to indulge in real beer without losing the sense of freshness.
