Our Factory

In 2005, JSC Lomisi attracted unprecedented investments of TBC bank and EBRD and a new brewery in Natakhtari was built. A factory is equipped with state-of-art technologies.

Freshness

Beer is a natural product and it should be consumed freshly since its taste is affected negatively by external factors such as sun-light, heat and oxygen. We keep optimum stock level in value chain to minimize the product age in the market – our target is to have the products in the market in a range of 35 to 45 days.

Natakhtari Water Is Our Biggest Asset

Natakhtari water is natural spring water coming from the majestic mountains in the region. The legendary pure water with its balanced mineral content gives the unique taste to our products.
