L’viv is famous for the quality of its beer and the beer museum opened in 2005 on the 290th anniversary of the establishment of the city’s first large-scale brewery. It is housed in a 19th century brewery building and most of the displays are in vaulted cellars once used for the storage of beer. The displays include vats, barrels and machines used in brewing in the city over many years, as well as a collection of bottles, mugs and labels from all over Europe. A video describes the history of brewing in the city. Visitors are able to taste the various products of the brewery in a congenial setting.
