The Lithuanians have been drinking beer since the 11th century. At the end of the 14th century there were many pubs as well as beer and vodka breweries in ·iauliai (Szawle) surroundings which belonged to the estate of the sovereign. Breweries and pubs were built either in private domains of noblemen or next to the estates and small cities in ·iauliai County. Many breweries and pubs were especially concentrated in the cities of the sovereign. (continued on the Official Gubernija Beer Website)
