Red Bear ("Krasniy Medved") is the first brewery on Svalbard that was open in 2012. There are only two breweries on the archipelago and the second one was open in Longyearbyen in 2015.  Since 1928 there have been “a dry law” on Svalbard meaning that you could buy an only limited volume of hard alcohol. Until 2014 it had been forbidden to produce alcohol drinks including beer stronger than 2.5 degrees so the first beer in Red Bear was brewed in less than 2.5 degrees.

In the EU and the US, there is a real excitement around reindeer meat. Adherents of healthy lifestyle say that meat in the North is the most environmentally friendly, and gourmets add that it is incredibly delicious. Venison is healthy and delicious, it does not go to any comparison with the meat of agricultural animals.
The Svalbard hunting season is short, and the number of licenses is strictly limited. But if you come to Svalbard, you should definitely try one of the dishes prepared from the local reindeer.

78° LATITUDE Shot, Red Bear Bar


According to the old Soviet Arctic tradition, polar explorers and sailors of the Northern fleet and civil vessels operating in the Arctic used alcohol to entertain the spirit. Pure alcohol 96 degrees. Drinking it in its pure form is a hell of a story. Therefore, the alcohol was diluted with water. Usually down to a degree of vodka - down to 40°.
The Arctic has its own traditions. Here the alcohol used to be diluted to a degree of latitude. In the Arctic circle, they drank alcohol diluted to 66-67° revolutions, in Murmansk - to 69°... Barentsburg is located at 78° North. Tradition must be honored!

Only for strong men and Arctic ladies! Drink in one gulp! Have a snack with the drink! The bartender is not responsible for the consequences!
