No matter how you spend your holiday at the Baltic Sea coast Mecklenburg, sooner or later everybody longs for a nice, cool, refreshing drink. Nothing could be more natural than trying one of the local beers. Famous beers have been brewed on the Baltic coast for 700 years already. This great brewing tradition is still continued on the Baltic Sea coast of Mecklenburg in Rostock, Wismar and Bad Doberan. The breweries as well as the brewery inns offer their own home-made barley brew. The famous "Brauhaus am Lohberg zu Wismar" produces its own beers, from light to dark, from Pilsener to Bock. Just let the "Braumeister" guide you through the brewery and explain the brewing process. Also the Rostock brewery offers guided tours including a nice beer tasting session.
