Local Ambassador

I love craft beer with hot ‘n’ spicy food. I play chess, read books & every now and then plan another beer adventure around the world if I'm not working on a startup.

Description

I’m a local beer enthusiast and home brewer who secretly worked as a beer spy. I’ve been home brewing for over 5 years now, and have produced 200+ batches of beer. I’ve also tasted over 1500 different beers from all around the world. For the past few years I’ve been hosting beer tastings for friends, small teams and tour groups (up to 32 people).

Join me for a fun and informative tasting session and get to know Estonian beer beyond the boring big-name brands. I’ll introduce you to a handpicked selection of light and dark beers from a range of Estonian craft breweries, and teach you about beer styles, beer history, and beer culture.

Your private tasting takes place in a light-green and white two-story house just a 2-minute walk from Freedom Square. Come to the front door and ring the doorbell (name: Leola) or call me. I’m inside!

Within the house hides a big room with a huge oak beer table. The walls are decorated with colourful shields representing all Estonian fraternities and sororities.

Tastings can be held for groups of up to 30 people.

In the case of a same-day booking, please allow 2–3 hours of preparation time for your tasting. Thank you!

Martin knows about beer!
Me and my friends did a beer tasting with Martin when he used to run a small Malaysian wok place. He had a nice selection of local Estonian craft beer for us and he knows how to bring out their interesting sides and aftertastes. Always great to talk to him about the local beer scene!

Casual&good
We highly recommend this tasting for everyone! Quite informative, without being too school-like experience! Delicious beer and relaxed atmosphere allowes discussion about other beers and topics aswell.

After tasting we recommend asking the host about burgers....
