Slovakia Beer Reviews

Slovakia has a long history with beer and brewing, a history shared with its neighbor, the Czech Republic. The Slovak beer tradition has centered around lower-ABV beers, and dates back to the Middle Ages. Modern brewing in Slovakia developed in the early 20th century, following in the footsteps of the Czech beer industry. The largest operations were nationalized after World War II, and today Slovakia is enjoying a growing microbrewery scene. Herbanovo’s Zlaty Bazant, or Golden Pheasant, is the country’s most famous brand.
