Had this on tap a year before. This is the first year @pivovaramedvedgrad are bottling their seasonal Braley Wine, in commemoration of Saint Martin's day celebration. Excellent label as usual with this brewery. Pours hazy copper color, with a diminishing small off white head. Low carbonation. I liked it much more that the year before, now with much less caramel malt flavours, and more similar to Belgian strong dark ales. Pronounced aroma of dark fruits, caramel, some alcohol, cloves. Sweet, vanilla, toffee, perfumy, flowery, rich with balanced bitter finish. Slight alcohol burn. Nice velvety mouthfeel. A great brew. Have one more bottle. Might cellar it. ABV: 10.3 %. #hrvatskopivo#domacepivo#croatiancraftbeer#croatianbeer#barleywine#strongale#instabeer#craftbeer#pivovaramedvedgrad#pivo#beer
🍺Pozoj - IPA
🇭🇷Zmajska Pivovara, Zagreb, Croatia
🌾Characterised by citrus aroma and hoppy bitterness, Pozoj IPA was named after a dragon in legends from Međimurje (region in northern Croatia).
🤔Tropical fruit, hoppy, citrusy and bitter. Nice one!🍻
7.3% ABV, 70 IBU
Just dropped another new episode to start your 2018 off right! In Episode 28, we head back to Croatia for a conversation with Tristan Delahunt to talk craft beer & cocktails at @sanctuarybarsplit. It’s a new but exploding drinking culture that I know you’ll love to hear about! This 5th Element Imperial IPA was far and away one of the best beers I had on my 2017 Europe trip. I’d put it head-to-head with any Imperial IPA I’ve had at home in The States. Cheers! 🍻 Link to episode in bio.

🍺Hendrix - Session Lager
🇭🇷Pivovara Medvedgrad + The Garden Brewery, Zagreb, Croatia
🌾Hendrix is light lager (India Pale Lager), enriched with New Zealand hops, primarily Nelson Sauvin, dry hopped twice.
🤔Floral, hoppy, fruity and very light.🍻
3.8% ABV, 28 IBU
👨🎓This is a collaboration between The Garden and Medvedgrad breweries, in an honour of the Hendrix Bridge in Zagreb.
Story about the Hendrix Bridge started more than 2 decades ago in Zagreb, when someone made a HENDRIX graffiti on the railway bridge crossing Sava river. The bridge soon became colloquially known simply as Hendrix Bridge. Over the years Authorities have tried to paint it over, but to no avail. After every paint job, in a matter of days a new ‘Hendrix’ graffiti would appear again.🎨
