About
Tartu is the birthplace of beer brewing in Estonia and it has been a beer city for almost 100 years. A beer museum was opened in the territory of the A. Le Coq Brewery in 2003 and it introduces the history of industrial beer brewing. Almost 2000 items are exhibited in the malt tower built in 1898: beer bottles and corks, tankards and barrels. Guests can see the equipment used for brewing beer at home and old industrial brewing equipment. The awards and medals won by the brewery from world exhibitions are also displayed. All visits to the museum end in the museum’s pub where guests can sample the drinks of A. Le Coq. Come and learn about the beer culture of Estonia and the world!

Best brewery tour ever
Aug 2019
We have visited a few breweries over the world, so we honestly didn't have much expectations for this brewery tour in Tartu.

The tours run only on Saturdays (3 times) and Thursday PM (1 time).
We had made an advance booking for the 10:00 tour...and ended up being the only ones showing up. So we had a private tour !

Our guide, Argo, was simply incredible. As an employee of the brewery, he knows a lot of stuff and is able to provide great explanations. He is able to answer all the questions you might have. Being we were alone also enabled the tour to be very casual.

We were taken to all the cool places, including the top of the outside fermentation tanks. The view of the more residential side of Tartu is nice from up there.

The tasting at the end is also very nice. Many products are offered and the bar is quite warm and cosy.

We would definitely recommend this activity, even if you have toured other breweries before. This one might just sweep you away !

Museum works on certain days only but brand store can be a target for visit
Jul 2019
Just double check when museum works. Brand store also can be a target for short visit as it has a lot of nice brand classes and other stuff. Reasonable prices allow you to taste A.Le Coq's drinks

A Must Visit in Tartu
Apr 2018
Wonderful people, Museum, and store for a variety of beer and accoutrements. Even older children will enjoy the museum and juices. We so appreciate the accommodating supervisors and store staff. Everyone was so kind. The walk is pleasant from the old town as well.

My partner and I spent a wonderful couple of hours touring the A Le Coq museum. So much to view and experience. Our tour guide was informative, helpful and had a brilliant sense of humour.

Interesting brewery
Mar 2017
Quite a good tour of the brewery and museum detailing the history behind Estonia's A Le Coq beer. Walk up the hill, which is about 10-15 minutes from the Town Hall square. Tour itself takes about 2 hours with some generous sampling at the end. Terviseks!

A massive tour of the beer museum
Nov 2015 • Friends
The tour is super long, it takes like 2 hours. At the begin is fun, but then it gets tired of seeing all time the same things.
At the end, they let you try one beer, that you can find on any supermarket.

An informative brewery tour
Mar 2016 • Couples

Definitely worth 5€! This was a great tour and our guide was very knowledgable. You shouldn't miss the opportunity to see a perfectly maintained 19th century brewery if you have the time to go. You get a tour of the old and new brewery plus a free beer of your choice from A. le Coq’s wide selection at the end. Highly recommend this to anyone coming to Tartu. We went for the 10:00 tour on a Saturday and it was just the two of us!

Excellent place, good guides and great beer, very nice small shop not far from the brewery. There is a great view from the roof of the building. The museum is very well done, enjoy the tour!

Machines which has 100 years and never be broken
Jul 2015 • Friends
I would say - every man should see it. In my opinion this is the really museum little bit in old style. It is passive, not user friendly and interactive. Guide shows you machines from Germany, which worked for more than 100 years and were still good. ALeCoq is the biggest and oldest brewery Estonia. On the end of sightseeing you have a tasting of local beer.
All takes about hour. Cost 5 euro. Check the timetable before!
