Croatian beer rises to become the drink of the nation during the eighteenth century, reaching industrial scale production in the late nineteenth century. Overwhelmingly, beer is now the drink of choice in Croatia. Where once upon a time, there was only industrially produced lager, now Croatian lager has had a craft beer make-over. Predominantly, Croatia produces blond beer; the two most famous being Karlovacko and Ožujsko.
Ožujsko beer has been in production since 1892 and is the post popular Croatian beer. Try their lager pils, Ožujsko Pivo and see for yourself why it is the nation’s number one.
Karlovacko beer is the national beer of Croatia, thanks in part to their huge level of marketing post release. That said, it has won numerous awards, including the 2005 Golden Medal at the ‘Brewing Industry International Awards’. It comes in with a 5.4ABV, characteristic golden colour and refreshing bitter taste.
The craft brewing revolution in Croatia is taking the beer world by storm, with small independents popping up all over the country, from Zagreb, to Istriam and Dalmatia, as well as the islands of Croatia. The Garden Brewery opened in 2016, just one of the latest to open in Zagreb. Whilst brewed in Croatia, the owners originate from England and New Zealand. They are now producing a dazzling range of beers including stouts, IPA and session ales, such as their Garden Stout, from their more traditional range and The Garden Imperial Raspberry And Coconut Stout, for those who like their stout with a twist!
