RINKUSKIAI

Brewery Rinkuskiai is the only family held brewery in the Birzai region, known as the beer capital of Lithuania. The history of the brewery began many generations ago.

Beer has been brewed in the Birzai region since the end of XI century and secrets of beer making have been passed from generation to generation. Jonas Čygas, the local brewer, was famous for his outstanding beer even outside the Birzai region. He brewed his barley beer for family celebrations such as weddings and anniversaries. Moreover, his beer was even brought to Vilnius, the capital, as a gift to the government officers.

In 1991 the first beer was brewed following authentic receipt of Jonas Čygas, in old wooden beer vats that now are exhibited at Rinkuškiai beer museum.

Since 1991 the brewery has modernized its facilities, expanded the assortment and production. Rinkuskiai beer has been exported to the USA for more than 10 years, also to Poland, Latvia and other European countries. In 2014 some sorts of beer have been exported to Ireland and China.  On September 2015 Rinkuskiai started exporting to Canada and in 2018 our beers were introduced to the New Zealand market.

The owners of the brewery reveal that the brewery is not merely a business, but a mission to preserve beer brewing traditions of Birzai region, the beer capital of Lithuania!
