A one-beer tiny brewery in the Lithuanian countryside. Seems like a fun place to drink outside in the summer but we were there off-season. The tiny brewery also includes a “beer museum” which is a dozen brewing-related items from another era. The place itself is like a tiny farmhouse next to the house of the brewer. I think this place is worth visiting to drink this very special beer as fresh as possible. I had their beer in Vilnius and it just wasn’t the same. When I had it at the brewery it was (and still is) the most “terroir” beer I ever had in my life. Not to say it was great (it was just good) but it sure was an experience worth the detour.

The museum is a wonderful snapshot of traditional beer-making methods. The beer we had was delicious, and so so rustic, even if it was very cold (there was snow on the ground, and we got fresh cellared beer, it was bound to be cold). Alas no English spoken.

Just on the outskirts of the village of Dusetos sits this tiny brewery full of personality. Impossible to miss its quirkiness when driving by. In summer, they have this nice little covered beer garden with a few wooden tables and old farm equipment. They also have scampi festivals and camping on the adjoining land. They also have accommodation should you want to stay there for the night. They brew a Keptinis, a forgotten style of beer which consists of baking a bread from the mash. They also do not boil. A very rustic brew, even when you don’t know how they brew it. The owners are very friendly and their little brewery museum on the second floor of the brewery is quite interesting. They used to brew with this equipment not too long ago and still carry it around when doing demonstrations at fairs and festivals. A very memorable place.
