This summer’s best craft beers from Estonia

 

There is a new generation of small breweries in Estonia that are not only original in the beers they are producing, but they are investing in the highest quality possible and utilising local raw materials as much as possible.

The craft beers from these breweries offer versatile and bold taste experiences that delight both beer enthusiasts and drinkers looking for something new. Below we have listed a few excellent summer beers from three Estonian breweries. Cheers!

 

Tuletorn: Silm Silm Double IPA 7.5% vol

A juicy double IPA with a hint of the tropics. Perfect drink for on a terrace or in the garden on a sunny day.

 

Kalamaja Brewery: Tres Hombres Pilsner 5.0%

New Zealand hops are used in this pale pilsner. The mild-tasting beer is well suited to accompany fish dishes.

 

Tuletorn: Naiss Hazy IPA 4.5% vol

A fresh hazy IPA with a fruity and citrusy bouquet. Suitable for the summer terrace and alongside light food.

 

Põhjala: Red Lager 4.9% vol

A light malty lager with a nutty and toffee-like taste. It is well suited to summer barbecue parties.

 

Kalamaja Brewery: Muhu Mölts Pale Ale 5.0%

A darker juniper pale ale. A round taste that goes well with pizza or pasta.

 

Põhjala: Sun City Florida Weisse 5.0% vol

Weisse beer, where the richness of sweet mango, passion fruit and peach mixes with acidity. Suitable for serving cold on a hot day and for summer parties.
