Tartu is the birthplace of beer brewing in Estonia and it has been a beer city for almost 1,000 years. A beer museum was opened on the territory of the A. Le Coq Brewery in 2003 to introduce the history of industrial beer brewing. It also provides the most thorough overview of the history of beer in Estonia, its culture, and origin story. Almost 2,000 items are exhibited in the malt tower built in 1898, including an original bottle of Imperial Extra Double Stout from the year 1869. All museum visits end at the museum pub, where our guests can sample A. Le Coq’s beverages. Excursions for individual visitors : Thursday at 2 p.m., Saturday at 10 a.m., 12 p.m., and 2 p.m. Group tours must be booked in advance (Monday to Saturday).
