Go brew some beer –

Tradition has it that the glassblower ’ s salary included five litres of beer a day . The glass industrialist Adolf Törngren had to face this fact when he hired foreign glassblowers in the mid-1850s . As he had decided to renovate his glass village to perfection to welcome the new employees , he also needed a brewery . It was built near the River Nuutajoki that runs through the village .
