Have some local beers on tap, acctually around 12 taps. But the selection of bottle beers in the shelf on the next room reflects whats happening to the place. All the craft are going out and nothing out of the ordinary belgians and Latvians are filling in instead. Was 1 or 2 interessting IPAs there but nothing out of the ordinary, Helpful staff and easy to find. Alehouse was better but longer out from the town. Did not eat.

Cold, smelly and noisy (TVs showing tennis and cranked up loud). The barman clearly didn’t give a toss about customers first splashing us when the keg gave out (he had the glass angled towards us) and then claiming he was off to change the barrel but instead making himself a coffee before going to change the barrel. Then he short changed me by a euro and when challenged claimed that he’d given me the correct change and I’d pocketed a euro coin before complaining. The toilets stank. The Mikela smelt and tasted wrong, but that could well have been due to the glass it was in being filthy. By far the worst bar I went to in Riga and one I’ll never be going back to.

27.04.2014. Short visit on a sunday. Ok selection of local beers. Very little people at the time gave me some time with the barkeeper to talk about their beers. Helpful man! Thanks!

This place feels like, not old, but worn out. Glory days are over now struggling to stay alive. Out of 4 beers I wanted: 1 wasn’t available and 2 of them were gone bad (1 disgustingly bad other was somewhat drinkable). Service was friendly but slow.

New Rating (2014):
Smelt of stale sour beer. Served stale sour beer (some of it smelt of poo - yay!). Only had ~12 taps, and ~12 unexceptional bottles, which is in harsh contrast to what it was like 2-3 years ago. What a fucking nose-dive. A real shame.
Old rating (2011): (4:8:11:x:8:16=78)
De Ranke XX Bitter on tap. That’s all you need to know. If there’s none left, it’s because I drank it all. Little that I can add to Bryne’s review. He didn’t mention the 2 tellies, showing different sports channels, but that’s about it. Easy to find off to the left of Doms Laukums. Really world-class beer venue, leading the pack in the Baltic states currently.

Not a must visit, but a quite nice bar in the center of old town. In tje middle of the tourist area, butnice selection of local brews on tap (10 at the time of my visit). Some British and Belgian beers were slso available, but hardly any interesting ones. Good service and a nice place for a pit stop in the old town.

They have some local beers. But I was very surprised to be given a foxy draft pint. The selection of craft bottles is very poor - they had some BrewDog stuff but those bottles were close to expire - I understand that there will be no further craft beer there once they sell the remaining bottles. To sum up - this place is now focused on common tourists wanting fizzy watery lagers with a good food and for sure it is not interesting for a beer geeks. Visited on 13 June

Lies in a very touristy area so most of the staff speak English pretty well. I preferred to sit outside in the cool breeze, but it was a bit noisy. Service was excellent and the food great, and with 11 latvian draft beer and probably a hundred bottled types to choose from this became my favorite beer place in Riga. Visits on July 2 and 8, 2013.

No longer the premier beer bar od Riga - they moved to ALEhouse. The upstairs restaurant may be OK, I have no idea. After 20 minutes of no service for beer 1 or food I quit. Better service downstairs but limited beer range now and too much TV sport. Ho hum.

A nice enough place, divided into a restaurant and a bar. The bar is kind of small, with a big row of draft beers. I was pleasantly surprised to discover they had 5-6 Latvian micro beers. One of these was infected, unfortunately. The staff were polite and helpful, but not very knowledgeable about beer, and one was just completely inarticulate. TV screens with sports, and not too loud music. All in all I thought it was not bad.
