Centre of visitors
Lithuanian Drinks Journey is an educational programme linking four cities with unique Lithuanian beverage traditions: Šiauliai, Alytus, Kaunas and Anykščiai. These cities are home to Lithuania’s largest beverage factories: the historic Gubernija Brewery in Šiauliai, Stumbras in Kaunas, which has already entered its second century, Anykščių Vynas in Anykščiai, which is approaching its centenary, and the youngest Alita factory in Alytus. All the factories share a clear vision – to uphold the authentic traditions of Lithuanian beverage production.
