Colleagues and camaraderie
In addition to trying to grow our local beer scene, we believe that it’s a good thing to network with other brewers in the region. We enter many competitions and drive to some of them to deliver Croatian entries. We help judge at some of these competitions and hang out with our friends in these other countries and talk about beer and brewing. We feel that this helps to foster an international beer community and can only help in our pursuit of a worldwide beer revolution. We encourage you to enter these competitions. If we are attending and can deliver your entries, we will post that on our social media network, linked at the bottom of this page.
Our Core Values
We Foster Education
Every year we train a new set of beer judges to help us judge the competition. This not only serves the purpose of providing us with more judges, it also helps educate local homebrewers. These judges will provide good critiques for how to improve competitor’s beers. All of our judges have gone through extensive judge training, including sensory training with off flavors. Many of our judges have gone on to open craft breweries. Amongst our judges are brewers from Zmajska Pivovara, Nova Runda and Varionica.
We Pursue Excellence
We believe in a sort of open source view of the world and sharing information on technique and recipes in the hope that it will make everybody’s beer better. We like to drink great beer, so if everyone around us is making better beer and helping each other improve, everyone wins. A rising tide lifts all boats, as they say. This site will eventually have articles and links on how to improve your beer.
We Practice Honesty
Judging is completely anonymous. While winning medals is nice, sometimes a brewer might have some issue with their beer and need an unbiased opinion and some feedback on how to improve the beer. Our judges give honest input on each beer they judge. And because it’s anonymous, you don’t have to be embarrassed to enter a beer that has some problems. You could receive some helpful advice.
We Create Fun
Brewers and beer geeks are fun people to hang out with. Every year we host different hangouts and the competition party for like minded beery folks to have fun together. This camaraderie helps to grow the scene which in turn ensures its survival in a brutal marketplace. We like to foster a fun environment that will promote good beer and lead to all of us having more choices for excellent beers to drink.

drink good beer
These are some places where you can find good beer to drink. If you know of a place in the region that has great beer and should be added to the map, please
let us know.
A big thanks goes out to Ratebeer and specifically Marko Ožegović, who wrote a ton of reviews for a lot of these locations on the Ratebeer site. Ratebeer is a great resource for beer geeks and one of my favorite features is locational search so you can find a nice pub to drink in wherever you may find yourself. Here is a search of Croatia as an example. You can then click on cities and refine your search. Happy beer hunting!
