After a long tradition of small-scale brewing, the industrial revolution nearly wiped out small breweries. Lucky for craft beer enthusiasts, small breweries are making a serious comeback with home brewers turning their hobby into businesses. These breweries have the independence to experiment with local flavours like juniper, moss and birch as well as make time-honoured classics. Rye is another popular Estonian ingredient, not only in dark breads, but also in beer. Even for the most well-traveled beer lovers, Estonian brews will offer new flavours not available anywhere else. Who knows, you might even discover a new favourite!
