The embassy of spirits
There’s no need to trek to the north side of Latvia to savor Valmiermuiža Brewery’s beers when you can simply take a leisurely half hour walk from Riga’s city center and visit its “embassy’”, a ministry of rural culture and traditions, right in the country’s capital. This diplomatic outpost has a short menu, because let’s face it, you’re here to drink, first and foremost. Food is but the star suds’ supporting actor, albeit a tasty one; artisanal cheese and charcuteries, pickles, a venison burger, fish and chips, bangers and Jerusalem artichoke mash. As for the craft ales et al, Latvia is way ahead of the other Baltic countries when it comes to producing small batch libations. The embassy’s mission is simple: it’s here to introduce foreigners and locals alike to beers, ciders, berry wines, and distillates. Even malt liquor, which you won’t find anywhere else. Enjoying these rustic beverages to the tunes of Latvian pop music is a unique experience. And if you get really into it––the drink, not the music––you can bring home your favorites from the shop next door...
