The company's activities and production


Volfas Engelman Bravoro Pinta (Brewery Pint)

Volfas Engelman Bravoro Pinta is the first pint in a glass bottle in Lithuania. And this beer stands out not only because of its tall, elegantly shaped bottle. It is a unique blend of four types of hops: German and Czech-grown Saaz hops with a noble aroma, aromatic Hallertauer Mittelfrüh, and bitter Hallertauer Magnum and Hallertauer Taurus. This is why this beer is so special; even the greatest beer experts are singing its praises and justifiably calling it the most mature creation of Volfas Engelman. Be one of the first to taste this beer!

Volfas Engelman Rinktinis

Volfas Engelman, the legendary beer of the interwar period, has returned with Rinktinis and is as great now as it was then. Volfas Engelman was the largest brewery in interwar Kaunas and it brewed the most popular beer in Lithuania at the time. Fresh then and fresh now, Volfas Engelman Rinktinis is made from only pure, specially filtered water. The aromatic Perle and Magnum hops, together with the unique brewer’s yeast reveal a rich taste, while the Lithuanian pilsner-style malt gives it a light color. As you press your lips to a glass of Volfas Engelman Rinktinis beer, don’t forget that whether at the bar or at home, you’re drinking the freshest beer.

Volfas Engelman Pilzeno (Pilsner)

 A novelty of the season—Volfas Engelman Pilzeno beer. Just as in the past, today this Pilsner beer is produced from premium-quality Lithuanian pilsner-style malt, which isenriched with a unique blend of selected Czech and German aromatic and bitter hops that guarantee the unmatched taste and aroma of this beer. Perhaps it was the intensity of the taste of this beer that made it so popular in the interwar period. In 1935, as much as 62%of all Volfas Engelman beer consumed was pilsner.

During production, this beer is cooled to a temperature of –1.5ºC. This beer should be served in an elegant footed glass wrapped in a paper napkin to absorb any condensation.

Volfas Engelman Stalo Beer

Last season, Volfas Engelman brought to you Stalo beer. This specialty has been a long time in the making. The brewers who were tasked with recreating the historic Stalo beer recipe had to be very creative. The recipe was recreated according to historic sources. The beer had to be light, less than 4% abv, but definitely not watered down. Though less strong, Volfas Engelman Stalo beer retains a rich taste, brewed according to the old recipe. The brewers knew that the technology for brewing beer as light as it is today did not exist during the interwar period. Therefore, they experimented with several varieties of hops until they found the perfect combination of Lithuanian pilsner and German Munich style malts. And so, a LIGHT RICH-TASTING BEER was born. During the interwar period, it was a perfect pairing for any meal. The beer was great with dinner and Lithuanians really enjoyed drinking it on hot summer days.

Volfas Engelman Imperial Porter

From its grand history, Volfas Engelman inherited a rich dark beer aptly named Imperial Porter. The combination of hops and roasted malt gives this beer a dark mahogany color and an unforgettable taste. Usually, porter style beers are thick and heavy. This one is different. Only 6% abv. Its unique taste and color comes from a perfect combination of components: light Lithuanian Pilsner and German caramel Cara Red malts together with a duet of Perle and Magnum hops. Volfas Engelman Imperial Porter is enjoyable and easy to drink. Guests at the Hansa Day festival couldn’t agree more – they (especially the foreign guests) drank so much of the beer that on the last day of the festival, the vendors ran out of beer and the brewery was also completely tapped out.

Volfas Engelman Nealkoholinis (Non-alcoholic)

Volfas Engelman Nealkoholinis – a novelty unseen in the interwar period – is alcohol-free but boasts a full taste and a rich head and is suitable for anyone who appreciates alight-tasting beer. Volfas Engelman Nealkoholinis is the perfect choice for whoever wants to experience the real pleasure of drinking beer without becoming intoxicated.
