Croatian beers

I went to Croatia on business. Luckily I found enough time to both grab a few beers while I was there (I even kept some notes from there) and bring a bunch of beers home. The Croatian beers here are bought in Zagreb and war scarred Osijek. The later hosts the good brewery Pivovara dd Osijek, wihch makes very good Czechish style lagers. Another highlight of the Croatioan beer scene is the outsanding dark, rich Tomislav Pivo, but also the beers from the Zagreb brewpub Pivnica Medvedgrad must be mentioned.

The same night we also rated some beers bought in Central Finland, where the winner of the evening Blanche de Bruxelles came from, as well as a number of non-alc beers bought form all over the Arabic peninsula, but brewed elsewhere.
