Lacplesis means much more than just a beer to Latvians. It is a poem written by Andrejs Pumpurs about Latvian freedom. Wikipedia and the site Lacleisis give lots of interesting information about the poem and Latvias fight for freedom from both Germany and Russian rule.
The beer was very light and refreshing ! The bar was called the Double Coffee House, Kr. Valderman Iela, Riga

    Now that is what I call a good card for a man, my hubby would have liked this one. Shirley

  • Thanks very much Shirley. Unfortunately I was so thirsty I drank the beer before thinking of a photograph !
    I’m sure your husband would appreciate that thought as well !
