A. Le Coq Beer Museum

Discover the story of beer!

A. Le Coq Beer Museum takes visitors on a journey to see, hear, taste, and feel the story of the world’s oldest drink.

The story of beer unfolds in a time tunnel that juxtaposes pivotal events of the past with the history of beer, and you can see and experience the change of beer over time.

In addition, each ingredient can be thoroughly examined, and the beer brewing process can be followed step by step. In the beer museum, you can also see rare production equipment, which has been in the factory since the beginning.

The heart of the museum is the historic malt tower of Tartu. The building, which functions to this day, is unique in all of Europe and an exciting attraction in its own right. Since the museum is located in a historic malt factory, malt gets special attention in the exhibition.

A separate area in the museum is dedicated to the over 200-year long history of A. Le Coq, the oldest drink manufacturer in Estonia. The star exhibit of the museum is the world’s oldest preserved beer – a bottle of A. Le Coq Imperial Extra Double Stout produced more than 150 years ago, which survived a shipwreck and has lasted to this day.

At the end of the visit, you can enjoy a beer or lemonade in the museum bar. There is also a gift shop at the museum, where you can find nearly 200 different souvenirs.
