Since April 2008 premium Baltika varieties — Baltika #6 Porter and Baltika #8 Wheat — have been united into the Baltika Selected series. The Baltika Selected is a new image combined with the original but familiar content and invariable quality. Brewed with added high-quality ingredients and having a racy flavor these varieties are meant for unhurried drinking in sedate and relaxed surroundings.
The traditional Baltika #6 Porter is brewed according to old English recipes from elite hops and special yeast.
The characteristic features of the Baltika #8 Wheat are thick dense foam, soft fruit aroma with spicy tinges and light sweetness.
In March 2009 is one of the oldest brands of Baltika Breweries - Baltika #4 Original — joined the Selected series. It’s a dark drink produced with rye malt, which adds bread flavor and light bitterness to the taste.
Baltika №4 Original is one of the oldest brands of Baltika Breweries produced since April 1994. The very name stresses the distinctive character of this brand as its recipe has no analogues either among Russian or world brands. Baltika №4 is a dark drink produced with rye malt, which adds bread flavor and light bitterness to the taste. The Original sort is now steadily popular and has dedicated lovers throughout Russia.
Baltika #4 is traditionally produced only at St. Petersburg brewery. From this place it is taken all over Russia and exported to almost 30 countries of the world.

In September 2004 Baltika #4 was among the 50 top brands of the world by the results of the annual International Beer Challenge Contest. All the brands participating in the contest are divided into 12 classes and are strictly assessed by their flavor and package by the leading experts in brewing.
