Our Story

Viru premium beer is proudly Estonian.

With a long and rich tradition of brewing, our beer uses traditional, centuries old Estonian brewing techniques to create clean, crisp, well balanced, light hoppy flavour, with a gentle note of vanilla.

Viru (pronounced VEE ROO) is a traditional word for an area of land on the Baltic coast once inhabited by a Finnic tribe known as ‘Vironians’ one of the tribes that later formed the nation of Estonia.

Viru is presented in a unique and sleek bottle, in tribute to the majestic, historic towers of Old Tallinn, in the Capital of Estonia.

In Estonia we have a saying
“Oled see, mida jood”
which means
“You are what you drink.”

Viru, is a delicious, beautiful beer.

What do you drink?

The Beer

An award winning 5% pilsner style beer. Brewed in Estonia using pure spring water from one of the deepest wells in Europe and specially selected barley from across the Baltic region.

Traditional brewing techniques combine pale malts with gently toasted malts and the finest quality Saaz hops to create a beautifully balanced lager suitable for all occasions.

A light golden colour with fine carbonation produces a crisp white head. Grain and citrus on the nose with slight herbal notes. Clean, refreshing flavour with consistent malt and a hint of caramel. Fresh hops linger to provide a subtle elegance and a smooth finish.

Genuine premium lager for those who appreciate quality and purity.

Beautiful Beer.

Viru Beer

‘Aromas of bread dough and lemon marmalade. Grassy apple butter and toasted grain flavours with hints of vanilla. Highly Recommended.’
