Project summary: 

Artjoms Gekišs started brewing more than ten years ago. What started as a hobby evolved into a viable business plan which, with support from the "Krāslava District Partnership" LAG, then became the “Murza” microbrewery.

Project results: 

Three new niche beer products (a pale, a red and a brown ale) are now available at outlets across the country. 

This new business and its high-quality local products contribute to the socio-economic development of the local area.
