“Madonas Alus” Brewery, “The Taste of Madona Region” object
In “Bodnieki” house built in 1906, beer was brewed already 100 years ago. To the modern day, ice cellars have been preserved under the house, to which ice was brought in winter from the surrounding lakes to store beer barrels in summer.
In 2015 the brewery was revived because brewer Rolands Zaharovs, who has learned the art of beer brewing far away in Australia, began brewing beer. Nowadays, LLC “Madonas Alus” combines modern and historical beer brewing traditions.
