December 1981 in the confluence of the Rivers Mūsa and Mēmele in the Bauska town new brewery was established. Since the establishment up to 2001, brewery has been managed by the eldest brewer in Latvia – Kārlis Zālītis. The pride of all Latvia and of our brewery – Kārlis Zālītis even now is giving his knowledges and skills to the other colleagues. In April 2001, his work in the brewery industry has been assesst with the Three-Star Order.
In 1982, one year since establishment of the brewery, two beer brands “Bauskas Gaišais” and “Bauskas Tumšais” has been made, but in 2004 – “Bauskas Tumšais Premium”. These brans have become very popular and have been awared with prices by jury.
The brewery’s main strength is its traditions. Despite of the factory’s continious improvments and modernizations, it’s collective stays loyal to the old, clasical technology of beer production that allowes maintaining consumers favorite taste of Bauskas Alus beer.
