While the changes are still taking place there may be situations where we will have mixed packaging. But our main goal is turn into canning completely.

New page in Sakiškės brewery

“Sakiškių alus” was born in 2015 in the small village of Sakiškės, near Vilnius. 2020 in late autumn, in the middle of quarantine, after renovation works, we moved to new spacious premises in Smoke factory, located in Vilnius, Dūmų street 5. The new place is so spacious that it contains not only bigger brewery, but also tasting bar with 24 taps and a venue for cultural activities and various events, accommodating up to 1000 participants.

After moving to the premises of the former scythe factory, we change our logo. In the new logo, you will find the contours of the place where we are located, fermenters that reflect our activities and the waves of the river, and maybe beer, flowing in both Sakiškės and Naujoji Vilnia. From now on, “Sakiškių alus” will be called “Sakiškės brewery”, as most of our products travel to foreign countries, and the number of foreigners in Lithuania is constantly increasing. While hops are certainly what our products are about, at the same time, we are a brewery that nurtures the culture of modern brewing.
