Belgian monks once made Abbey Beer world-famous, but nowadays the beer is also brewed outside the monastery walls. In the 13th century, already a year after the founding of Riga, Cistercian monks, known for various fine skills, including brewing, built a monastery in Daugavgrīva at the invitation of Bishop Albert.

The story of the founding of Riga and the Daugavgrīva monastery inspired the host of Valmiermuiža beer to brew his own version of a classic Abbey Ale, based on the style of beer cultivated by the Cistercian monks over many centuries.
