We start producing our first beer – Senču!
We were the first collective farm brewery in Latvia to compete with the state-run beer plants. The brewery, as a supplemental production at the TĒRVETE collective farm, began to work under strict conditions: only barley grown on the collective farm could be processed, and only people working on the collective farm could work at the brewery. In the first year of operation, we started the production of malt; the whole process was manual. We brewed beer in black metal vessels, which were replaced in the 80s with stainless steel tanks.
Tervete – the first company to start bottling beer in 0.5 l glass bottles
Production capacity – 3 000 bottles per hour
The whole brewing process is hand work

The production of a new sort of TĒRVETE beer has started. The beer quickly gained popularity and high marks from beer lovers during tastings. Striving for excellence, our specialists continued to expand their knowledge at the Moscow Beer Institute and in Lvov.

An important stage in our development.
In the early 90s, several Latvian breweries had the opportunity to make a significant step towards technological growth – and we were among them! At that time, information about new technologies could only be obtained from printed publications from Russia. With the beginning of the independence of Latvia, the time for the development of the beer industry began. Our specialists traveled to West Germany; their knowledge served as a valuable contribution to the development of our brewery.

The production of a new sort of beer TĒRVETES Originalais has been started.
With funds from the EU Accession Fund SAPARD, we built a modern beer cellar with 16 tanks and installed a new bottling line with a capacity of 6,000 bottles per hour. It allowed us to significantly increase the production volumes. A new variety – TĒRVETES Originalais – has been created. This is our strongest beer with a more pronounced bouquet, resulting from a long maturation. In 2005, the Ministry of Agriculture and the Marketing Board awarded our brewery with the “Seal of Excellence” for producing excellent products.

TĒRVETE becomes the most loved brand!
New superb beers and a new visual style! For 40 years, TĒRVETES beer has conquering store shelves and people’s hearts. Demand for our brewing products continued to grow. As the core values of the company were formed, we created the TĒRVETE brand, which embodies the spirit of rural Latvia, based on respect for the true values inherited from our ancestors. As the company developed, a new visual product design was developed and a slogan was created that symbolizes our values – Comes form own land! Having listened to our beer lovers, we added a novelty to TĒRVETES range – unfiltered beer with natural sediment.

Production of kvass and drinking water has started.
A new basement with 12 barrel containers. A beer workshop equipped with modern technologies was launched, twice as powerful as the previous one, with a capacity of 42 cubic meters of wort per day. In order to expand the assortment offered to fans of our beer, we started the production of TĒRVETE Tumšais dark beer, which is made using three types of malt – pale, caramelized and roasted. Also, a technological line for the production of kvass was introduced and the production of two varieties of kvass – Saimes and Godu – was launched. As the product range grew, we built a vast warehouse for one million bottles with a total volume of 500 cubic meters of beer. In 2016, a line for making and filling PET-bottles with a capacity of 6,000 bottles per hour was installed. Bottling of kvass into PET-bottles has begun. The production of TĒRVETE drinking water from the own groundwater deposits at a depth of about 60 meters, has also begun.
