You are in Riga. You love beer. This is Heaven on Earth.
Located right under one of the hippest Riga’s clubs ‘Piens’ and just a few steps from the most popular Riga’s fast food stop Fontaine Delisnack, Labietis is a hidden beauty in a very well known place. A bar fully dedicated to different tastes of their own homemade beer is exactly as good as it sounds.
Your first time in Labietis may be a little confusing. What you see when you come up to the bar are at least 10 types of beer you’ve never heard of before. For a minute there you’re standing there not really sure about what to get, but all the uncertainty flows away the moment the bartender asks you what kind of beers you usually drink. Everyone working at Labietis is really aware of what they’re offering, so after a 2 or 3 minute conversation about your favourite tastes, they will find the right beer for you.
After drinking half a pint of your first choice, switch to a different sort recommended by the bartender. Even when you find your personal favourite (takes some time, for me it’s Akmeņrags) don’t stick just to that one. In Labietis the flavours are endless, and each one of them worth a try.
