PostSubject: Decent beers in Bulgaria?   Thu Dec 13, 2012 12:27 pm

First topic message reminder :

My thirst for knowledge goes on ( I'll get my coat) , just wondering what the beer/lager is like out there and roughly what you'd pay for a pint in a typical village pub or even a bar owned by expats. Sorry for all these questions but Bulgaria is interesting me more and more.

I stand corrected Prawler but it is more expensive so why? I guess its made under licence.

Beck's is 1 lev at the shops, so I don't see it so expensive having in mind taste and quality :)
Surely, they are under licence...

Sorry - I was only mentioning that Becks is a more expensive beer in a village than something like Bolyarka but maybe I'm wrong - I often am! 1lev is for what size bottle just out of interest?

At the end of a hot day, I don't think any beer is bad..just some are better than others.

I agree with you about xxxx, but a cold Fosters at the end of a 40 degree day slides down quite nicely. The rubbish they call Fosters in the UK bears little resemblance to the real deal.

If it has to be bulgarian, I mostly find myself buying Shoumensko svetlo - has a moderate taste of grain and slightly bitter. The Premium is not bad too but quite heavy flavoured, depends on what you like. Bulgarian beer in general is low-mid quality, so not that exclusive. This is compensated by the very good quality ( my own view ) of dark beers - try Stolichno, its fantastic. Other heavier brews are Kamenitza and Astika ( the second is more floral and lighter in taste and aroma ) both having strong coffee/caramel taste. There was an attempt by Boliarka to produce Weiss beer, was priced as Oettinger weiss but was definitely inferior in taste. Still, worth a try if you can find one, its very cheap.

I'm a bit of a lightweight when it comes to beer, tho i admit i do enjoy Kamanitsa Fresh in the summer on the beach. The dark beers in the winter for me, tho not Stolichno, i always have a thumping head in the morning with it.

,Tony..have to agree. Metro had the little 4pack cans on offer last week , so I just had to indulge myself with a dozen..though I must say I prefer it off the pump.

Beggars can't be choosers, I suppose..at the end of the day, I'll take what I can get! Maybe it's about time, with better weather just over the horizon, that we organised a bit of a get together..in the interests of culture of course! Beers could play a small part, along with other interesting stuff , like what colour did you paint your house or what's the biggest carrot you grew last year..rivetting stuff like that! By the way, did that little goat kid ever get a name that everyone liked? (Very much tongue in cheek guys, so please don't take umbrage)
