“Great place and great value”
Review of Easy Beer

Easy Beer
Ranked #67 of 1,172 Restaurants in Riga
Price range: US$4 - US$24
Description: Easy Beer will be a good start if you want more than just "go for a beer," because it is a place where you can not only get to know the beer deeper, but can also talk about it. More precisely, "Easy Beer" is a beer grill bar/restaurant with the first "beer wall" in the Baltics - it has 20 self-service beer taps which allows everyone to pour any beer in their desired quantities. Beer sommelier has been up to the task and has selected a variety of beer styles from all over - both the bitter IPAs, the strong imperial stouts, the british bitters and American ales, and, of course, the classic German Weissbier and much more. Clearly, where there is good beer, there is also good food. Menu is not tailored solely to the taste of beer lovers, it will appeal to both mild flavor lovers and spicy Mexican food lovers. The offerings are mostly well-known and demanded foods - various snacks, salads, craft burgers, Tex Mex dishes, and ribs, all of which are made in an open-air kitchen!

A great concept, serve your self beer, wine or spirits using a credit card type system. Good variety of quality drinks. You only pay for what you take so can sample many beers and wines at low prices.
We tried the food and whilst fairly simple is good quality and attractively presented.
Pleasant decor and nice staff

Just spotted this place and nipped in for a quick drink and loved the concept! You get a card tap on a screen to choose the beer of your choice then pour yourself whatever measure you want! Once you use the €20 up you recharge the card, after paying your €20 and start again! Brilliant and great choice of beers!

I love beer so this was heaven for me. Lots of self-serve beer on tap and you get charged for the amount you pour. That means you can taste any of them first, etc.

We had the burgers for dinner and they were really good.

Service was good too. I had problems with the tap at first and the guy kind of treated me like I didn't know what I was doing. He was right but... It was fine.

What a cool bar! We just went for a couple of drinks a couple of times but food looked great too.

All sorts of different types of beer ate available here from all over the world, including Latvia. They have some beers you can get from taps on the wall using a contactless card you get from the bar. The great thing about this is you can take as little or as much as you like and you just pay for the quantity you have.

Very cool place - would recommend a visit!

After an enjoyable experience at their sister bar Easy Wine the previous night, I was looking forward to trying Easy Beer early this evening (around 6.30pm on Friday 1st December). However, within 30 seconds of entering the premises we were insulted not once but twice by a dark haired lady with glasses at the front of house. First she demanded we shut the door before we had a chance to do so, then sarcastically told me off when I asked if I could have a card to buy the beers saying “I know how it works”. At which point I said fine we will leave rather be spoken to like that. She then made a half hearted apology claiming I misunderstood what she said, realising she had pushed her luck with her general rudeness. By then however, the damage was done. I don’t know if she was having a bad day, but people like her with no social skills have no business dealing with the public if they can’t treat people with respect.

We will talk this over at our next staff meeting and make sure that this never happens again, the last thing we want is to upset our guests.
